UPDATE: Late fumble, penalties lead to Packers loss-Playoffs still a chance with Bears beaten badly

UPDATE: Next week's game with the Packers and the Bears is now very important.   The Bears missed a chance to clinch the NFC North title Sunday night in getting blown out 54-11 by the Eagles. The Bears and the Packers next Sunday at Soldier Field.  The Lions also lost Sunday.  That means Sunday’s matchup between the Bears and Packers at Soldier Field will decide the NFC North winner.  The NFL's flex-scheduling has already moved the Bears-Packers game to 3:25 p.m. to allow the Cowboys-Eagles game to air Sunday night.

GREEN BAY, Wis (WSAU-TSN)  Le'Veon Bell scored the go-ahead touchdown with 1:25 remaining and the Pittsburgh Steelers survived a last-second throw into the end zone to beat the Green Bay Packers 38-31 in wild game Sunday at snowy Lambeau Field.

Bell's 1-yard run came after safety Troy Polamalu forced a fumble from Packers quarterback Matt Flynn, and before Micah Hyde's 70-yard kickoff return gave Green Bay, which was out timeouts, a chance to tie it at the end.

Flynn completed passes of seven yards to Jordy Nelson and 19 yards to Andrew Quarless before James Starks' 4-yard run took the Packers to the 1-yard line. But lineman Don Barclay was called for a false start, pushing them back five yards and running 10 seconds off the clock.

Flynn's pass on the final play went off Jarrett Boykin's fingertips.

The loss damaged the Packers playoff chances. They'll need the Philadelphia Eagles to defeat the Chicago Bears, and then the Packers will need to beat the Bears in Chicago next Sunday.

Ben Roethlisberger passed for 167 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and also ran for a score for the Steelers (7-8), who won for the fifth time in seven games.

Bell rushed for 124 yards but had a fumble that led to a Green Bay touchdown after a bizarre series of events that included a blocked Packers field goal attempt, an illegal batted ball and a forbidden challenge by the Steelers.

Antonio Brown had six catches for 105 yards in the win and Cortez Allen scored on a 40-yard interception return.

Flynn threw for 232 yards with a touchdown pass to Boykin and Eddie Lacy had 15 carries for 84 yards and two Green Bay scores before leaving the game.

The Packers (7-7-1) played without Aaron Rodgers for a seventh straight game, though the quarterback has been practicing as he makes his way back from a fractured collarbone. They had a two-game winning streak snapped.
