The Pittsburgh Steelers ain't what they used to be.
Big Ben Roethlisberger torched the Oakland Raider secondary to the tune of 384 yards and four touchdowns, but Pittsburgh's defense just couldn't hold back Carson Palmer and company as Dennis Allen's squad battled back for the dramatic 34-31 win.
Both teams move to 1-2.
Pittsburgh jumped out to 31-21 lead behind Roethlisberger's steady play, but 13 unanswered fourth-quarter points and a Sebastian Janikowski game-winning 43-yard field goal gave Oakland the much-needed win.
Carson Palmer completed 24-of-34 passes for 209 yards, three touchdowns and an interception while Darren McFadden jumped out of his slump with 113 rushing yards and a touchdown on just 18 carries.
There was a scary moment late in the fourth quarter when Darrius Heyward-Bey was knocked out cold after a big hit from Ryan Mundy. He was put on a stretcher and taken to a local hospital, but he is reportedly doing well.
