ATLANTA (AP) – Kenny Pickett tossed a 17-yard touchdown pass to Connor Heyward, Matthew Wright kicked four field goals and the Pittsburgh Steelers made it two wins in a row for the first time this season.
They held off the Falcons 19-16 before thousands of towel-waving fans in Atlanta.
Coming off a Monday night victory at Indianapolis, the 5-7 Steelers finally put together a winning streak in what has been a tough rebuilding year in Pittsburgh.
Meanwhile, Atlanta squandered an opportunity near the goal line for the second week in a row.
This time, a holding penalty wiped out a potential game-winning touchdown.
