    Seeing is believing

    The Steelers' free-fall continued today at Heinz Field as they failed to protect a fourth-quarter lead three different times and lost to the underdog Raiders, 27-24, in front of a stunned crowd at Heinz Field.

    The Steelers lost their fourth game in row and now find themselves at 6-6. They almost certainly have to win the rest of their games if they want to have a chance to making the AFC playoffs as a wild-card team.

    Ben Roethlisberger threw for 278 yards and a pair of scores, including an 11-yarder to Hines Ward with just under two minutes left to play.

    Bruce Gradkowski, however, trumped Roethlisberger as he threw for 308 yards and three fourth-quarter touchdowns, including two to rookie wide receiver Louis Murphy.

    The Steelers had a chance to win at the end but Roethlisberger's desperation heave was broken up in the end zone.

    The Steelers will try to get back on the winning track Thursday night at Cleveland.

    After that, games remain against the Packers, Ravens and Dolphins.
