Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr hit wide receiver Michael Crabtree with a touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter, leading to a tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers that proved to be short-lived.

A subsequent Steelers drive, highlighted by Antonio’s Brown’s long catch and run off a Landry Jones pass, ended with a 19-yard field goal by Chris Boswell, giving the Steelers a 38-35 victory.

Brown finished with 17 catches for 284 yards.

The loss dropped the Raiders’ record to 4-4, second place in the West Division, but well behind the Denver Broncos, who were 7-0 going into Sunday’s game with the Indianapolis Colts.

Pittsburgh improved to 5-4.

DeAngelo Williams rushed for 170 yards on 27 carries. He had two touchdowns.

Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger injured his left foot when he was sacked by Oakland’s Aldon Smith and left the game in the fourth quarter.

Carr passed for four touchdowns. Crabtree had seven catches for 107 yards and two touchdowns.
