Steelers beat Raiders 38-35 but lose Roethlisberger

PITTSBURGH -- Chris Boswell hit an 18-yard field goal with 2 seconds left to lift the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 38-35 win over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

The Steelers (5-4) survived despite losing quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to a left foot injury midway through the fourth quarter. Backup Landry Jones found Antonio Brown for a 57-yard reception on Pittsburgh's final drive to set up Boswell's winning kick.

Brown finished with 17 catches for 284 yards, both franchise records. Running back DeAngelo Williams ran for 170 yards and two scores as the Steelers rolled up 597 yards of total offense.

Derek Carr threw for 301 yards with four touchdowns and an interception for the Raiders (4-4). Carr found Michael Crabtree for a 38-yard score to tie it with 1:15, more than enough time for the Steelers to get Boswell in range for a chip shot even without their franchise quarterback.
