Steelers beat Colts on last-second field goal

13 November 2017

In a unusual chain of events, Jacoby Brissett finds himself in the NFL's concussion protocol Sunday evening even though he passed an initial in-game evaluation and finished the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

After the game, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told reporters that Haden suffered a broken fibula and that he would be out indefinitely.

After that play Brissett completed two of six passes, threw an interception and took two sacks.

Roethlisberger found JuJu Smith-Schuster on a 7-yard TD pass midway through the third quarter to make it 17-9. The 2-point conversion pass tied the score at 17 with 11:52 to go.

Boswell also had a chance to give Pittsburgh the lead with a 37-yard field goal with 6:17 left but the ball hit the right goal post and bounced off. The extra point was blocked.

A third-round pick of the Patriots in 2016 out of North Carolina State, Brissett won a Super Bowl with New England last season.

Haden has been an integral part of the Steelers' defensive revival in 2017.

Colts: Brissett did not come to the podium after the game because he developed concussion-like symptoms following, the Colts said. The situation is made worse by the fact the Steelers now have a stretch of four primetime games in a row, the first coming against the Tennessee Titans in a short week.
