Playoffs begin now for struggling Steelers

Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Heath Miller says there's still a chance for his struggling team to get it together.

Maybe, but time is running out.

The Steelers (7-7) have dropped 4 of 5 following Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to Dallas on Sunday and need to win each of their last two games to reach the postseason for the third straight year.

Pittsburgh gave the game away in the final minutes. Wide receiver Antonio Brown fumbled on a punt return that helped Dallas tie the score and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger tossed an interception on the first possession of overtime that led to a chip-shot Cowboys field goal.

The Steelers, who went nearly three years without dropping consecutive games have now done it twice in the last month.
