Steelers' playoff hopes iffy after pratfall in Oakland

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin acknowledged his team's spotty track record in Oakland before the AFC North leaders headed west last week but added "it's not a major component of logistical preparation."

Maybe, but history ended up repeating itself anyway in a 24-21 loss to the team tied with the worst record in the league on Sunday, one who has bailed on this season to build toward the future but found three hours of sustained competence while keeping Pittsburgh winless in Oakland this millennium.

The Steelers (7-5-1) let the Raiders drive the length of the field twice for touchdowns in the fourth quarter, yielding much in the same way they did in the second half of a loss to the Los Angeles Chargers a week earlier.
