But Tomlin certainly had every right Sunday night to be frustrated, albeit privately, especially when considering officials failed to penalize the Chargers in the first quarter when right tackle Sam Tevi appeared to get an early jump before the snap. Everyone was expecting a flag, but none was thrown.
Toward the end of the first quarter, Rivers went deep and found wide receiver Travis Benjamin, who hauled in a 46-yard touchdown reception.
False starts are not reviewable, so the Chargers caught a huge break, while the Steelers were left livid over the blown call.
Conner had 74 total yards and two rushing touchdowns on 18 touches at the time of his departure. "I'm going to keep my mouth shut".
When pressed on other situations, including a challenge on a spot, the Steelers head coach wasn't in the mood to address the line of questioning. "I'm going to do that [be] cause I've sent enough money to NY".
"There was no explanation other than they missed it", Tomlin said. Instead of a touchdown, Los Angeles would have been set up deep in its own territory had a penalty been called.
Rivers has come back from a 16-point deficit seven times in his career, most by any active quarterback, tying Peyton Manning for the most such comebacks since 2001. With only four games left Pittsburgh hasn't even secured a winning record yet.
"We're some dogs. We're going to take what we want and we did", Allen said.
Running Back James Conner #30 of the Pittsburgh Steelers runs with the ball in the second quarter against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium on November 4, 2018 in Baltimore, Maryland. Rivers connected with Antonio Gates for a two-point conversion.
