on

FOURTH QUARTER

00:34 With Joe Haden on the bench, Cam Sutton intercepts Philip Rivers to seal the win.

1:29 The banged-up Steelers defense is starting to show some wear and tear.

Philip Rivers leads an eight-play, 74-yard drive and finds Hunter Henry for another score.

24-17 Steelers.

2:00 Steelers cornerback Joe Haden has a groin injury and is questionable to return.

3:53 Steelers running back James Conner has a quad injury and is questionable to return.

7:13 The Chargers aren’t going away quietly. Philip Rivers to Hunter Henry in the very back of the end zone makes it a two-score game. 24-10 Steelers.

14:00 After T.J. Watt and Anthony Chickillo combined to sack Philip Rivers on third down, the Chargers settled for a field goal after an 11-play, 66-yard scoring drive. 24-3 Steelers.

THIRD QUARTER

8:12: The Steelers took 6:48 off the clock on a long drive that ended in a Chris Boswell field goal. They have a 8:20 advantage in time of possession. 24-0 Steelers.

HALFTIME STATS

SECOND QUARTER

4:23 Devin Bush down on the field and appears to be in considerable pain. Not good news for the Steelers defense already playing without Mark Barron at inside linebacker. Vince Williams will play next to Tyler Matakevich. The only other inside linebacker dressed is rookie Ulysees Gilbert.

6:34: Devlin Hodges hit James Conner in the right flat and he broke a tackle and scampered 26 yards for a touchdown to put the Steelers in the driver’s seat, 21-0.

FIRST QUARTER

3:38 Steelers defensive lineman Stephon Tuitt has left the game with a pectoral injury and is questionable to return.

4:29 The Steelers take advantage of the short field. James Conner scored on an off-tackle play from 12 yards out.

Mike Tomlin made scoring touchdowns after turnovers a focus for his team this week after failing to do so against Baltimore:

“We were able to deliver a couple turnovers and get the ball on a short field, but we weren’t able to punch those in. We settled for three, and there’s a price to pay for that.”

14-0 Steelers

8:59 Tyson Alualu got his hands on the ball and Devin Bush played a perfect tip drill for his second interception in as many weeks. He now his six takeaways in six games.

10:51: Devin Bush recovered a fumbled lateral and returned it 9 yards for his first career touchdown as the Steelers score on defense on the third possession of the game. 7-0 Steelers.
