Steelers Take Down Packers

The patched together Steelers secondary - led by veteran cornerback Patrick Peterson - tipped Jordan Love's pass into the hands of safety Keanu Neal in the end zone with 3:20 to go to end one threat in a 23-19 win over Green Bay on Sunday that had all the hallmarks of so many victories that have come before. 


Safety Damontae Kazee later stepped in front of Love's last-second heave at the goal line on the final play as the Steelers head into a pivotal two-game road trip to AFC North rivals Cleveland and Cincinnati with momentum.


Love completed 21 of 40 for 289 yards and two touchdowns for Green Bay, but the Packers (3-6) were unable to back up last week's victory over the Los Angeles Rams despite outgaining the Steelers by 75 yards.


Green Bay has dropped 5 of 6 since a 2-1 start.


The Steelers scored on each of their first three drives while taking a 17-7 lead. 


The Packers welcome the Los Angeles Chargers to Lambeau Field next Sunday.
