The win put the Steelers at 2-2 and kept them in the AFC North race. A loss would have been devastating and even tougher to bounce back from with LaMarr Woodley and Troy Polamalu leaving the game with injuries.
Pittsburgh may not be able to play with either of its defensive stars, as they are on a short week, playing on Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans.
A win over the Titans would put the Steelers over .500 for the first time this season and provide some momentum, as they have their first divisional game against the Cincinnati Bengals on October 21.
Here is a game-by-game outlook for the rest of the season.
