With 26 seconds left in the game, Pittsburgh Steelers Chris Boswell kicked a 40-yard field goal to give Pittsburgh a 29-27 win over the Chicago Bears at Heinz Field on Monday Night Football.

Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed 21 of 30 passes for 205 yards with two interceptions on the night.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin reached his 150th career win in this game, which puts him in 20th place overall in NFL history for victories by a head coach.

“I’m just appreciative of the standards that’s been set by those that have come before me,” said Tomlin after the game. “All of us are here. That standard is inspirational for us. It inspires us, it challenges us. I’m just thankful to be a part of this thing that is the Pittsburgh Steelers. I work to do my job to uphold the standard.”

On the other hand, the Bears were a little unfortunate when referee Tony Corrente’s called outside linebacker Cassius Marsh. Corrente for taunting and “postured” in the direction of the Steelers’ bench.

“I think that one was bad timing,” Marsh said after the game. “It was pretty clear to everybody that saw it that I wasn’t taunting.”

“It sucks,” inside linebacker Roquan Smith said. “We just have to eliminate those. Self-inflicted … I thought it was a B.S. call. [Marsh] has been doing that celebration his entire career.”

The Bears are off next week, then they will host the Baltimore Ravens at Soldier Field on November 21. Meanwhile, the Steelers will face the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
