The Steelers offense continues to not be the issue for the Steelers – at least it wasn’t Sunday in Oakland vs the Raiders.
Instead, the Steelers, who held a couple 10-point leads in the second half, faltered down the stretch as their defense could not stop old friend Carson Palmer, allowing the Raiders to steal a 34-31 win to put Pittsburgh at 1-2.
The winning field goal came from the leg of Oakland kicker Sebastian Janikowski, who booted true a 42-yard field goal at the buzzer for the win.
Ben Roethlisberger had another All-Pro day that will go wasted. Big Ben was on fire, going 36-for-49 for 384 yards with four touchdowns, no picks, and a QB rating of 123.2.
The Steelers had leads of 24-14 and 31-21 in the second half, but after playing solid D in the first half, they let Palmer march up and down for the field for pass after pass that turned things in the Raiders favor.
