Brown had his leg caught in between two Patriots defenders as he dove for a catch in the endzone during the first half on Sunday.

Brown has elevated himself into the MVP conversation with 101 catches, 1,533 yards and nine touchdowns, including several plays that clinched last-minute wins. Le'Veon Bell ran for 117 yards and added another 48 receiving as Pittsburgh hung in there even with Brown, the NFL's leading receiver, in a hospital having his left calf injury examined. CBS Sports sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson said Brown underwent X-rays and a short time later the team announced that Brown was questionable to return with a calf injury. While those can linger, that would appear to qualify as good news in the long run for Brown and the Steelers.

Brown entered the Week 15 matchup with the Patriots with 99 catches.

It also was Williams' first career interception, one that couldn't have come at a better time for the Steelers.

Brady repeatedly turned to Gronk on the Patriots' final scoring drive, connecting over the middle for back-to-back 26-yarders and then a 17-yarder to the Steelers' 8. A successful conversion gave the Pats a 27-24 lead with just:56 seconds remaining, and the Steelers got the ball back with just one timeout remaining.

The Steelers thought they had taken the lead with 28 seconds to play when Ben Roethlisberger found the tight end.

When the Steelers defense took the field on Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh, they got a little help from their injured teammate Ryan Shazier. Finally, instead of spiking and kicking a field goal, Roethlisberger fake spiked, fired to the end zone and was intercepted by Patriots safety Duron Harmon. It was a costly loss, one that saw the top seed and home-field advantage in the AFC playoffs stolen in the final seconds.
