Steelers Beat Chargers In NFL's First 11-10 Game

Posted: Updated:

The only thing perfect on a snowy, frigid day when the weather and the offenses were equally awful was San Diego's regular-season record in Pittsburgh.

Make it 0-13.

Ben Roethlisberger stayed away from the mistakes that cost the Steelers their previous two home games, Willie Parker ran for 115 yards and Jeff Reed's third field goal won it - a 32-yarder with 11 seconds remaining - as Pittsburgh rallied to beat the Chargers 11-10 on Sunday.

The 11-10 final was the first in NFL history, and it was in jeopardy when Troy Polamalu returned an errant lateral 12 yards for an apparent touchdown on the final play. But it was overturned on replay - called an illegal forward pass - and the 11-10 score was restored.
