Steelers 38, Packers 31

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Le'Veon Bell ran for a 1-yard touchdown with 1 minute, 28 seconds left, then Pittsburgh withstood Green Bay's last throw into the end zone to deal the Packers' playoff hopes a blow.

It's a long shot, but the Steelers (7-8) are still mathematically in the hunt for an AFC wild-card spot. They need a lot of help.

The loss meant Green Bay (7-7-1) needed Chicago to lose to the Eagles on Sunday night to stay in playoff contention.
