Tampa Bay, which lost 56-14 last week in Atlanta, went into Pittsburgh Sunday and stunned the Steelers on a touchdown with :07 left, 27-24. Mike Glennon, the backup QB playing because starter Josh McCown is out with a hand injury, fired the game-winning pass to Vincent Jackson, completing a wild comeback to give Tampa its first win of the season.
The Bucs turned the ball over on downs at the Pittsburgh 14 with 1:49 left, and it appeared Pittsburgh would hold on for the victory. But the Steelers went conservative and couldn’t get a first down, and a terrible 29-yard punt left the door ajar for a comeback.
Glennon hit Louis Murphy – signed this week; six catches, 99 yards – for 41 yards, and a couple plays later, tossed the game-winner to Jackson. Pittsburgh fell to 2-2 on the season, a game behind 3-1 Baltimore and 1.5 games back of 3-0 Cincinnati in the AFC North.
