PITTSBURGH -- There's never been a game like this in NFL history.The bizarre 11-10 final score was fitting because the Chargers still haven't had the regular-season finish they want in Pittsburgh: a winning one.Ben Roethlisberger stayed away from the mistakes that cost the Steelers their previous two home games, Willie Parker ran for 115 yards and Jeff Reed's third field goal won it -- a 32-yarder with 11 seconds remaining -- as Pittsburgh rallied to beat the Chargers on a snowy Sunday.
• The Steelers are in sole possession of first place in the AFC North and extended their home win streak over the Chargers to 13 games, the fourth longest active streak in the NFL.
• The 11-10 score was the first time in the history of the NFL a game has ended with the score of 11-10.
• Ben Roethlisberger passed for 308 yards on a season-high 41 attempts. Roethlisberger has now passed for 41 attempts in back-to-back games. It was Roethlisberger's first 300-yard passing game at home since 2006 against Denver.
• Philip Rivers tied a season-low with 159 passing yards and two interceptions in the loss.
