On a Sunday in which five teams (Arizona, Cleveland, Detroit, Houston and Seattle)achieved victory with last-second field goals (an NFL record), the Steelers also added to the drama by achieving a close victory over the Packers.
In a game in which two of the most legacy teams in the league were involved, the Steelers survived at home when Damontae Kazee intercepted a pass to Jordan Love on the last play of the game and thus achieved their fourth victory in their most recent five games.
With two games remaining in Week 10, nine of 12 games (75 percent) were within one possession (eight points) in the fourth quarter, and nine games were decided by less than a conversion touchdown.
