The following are the highlights and lowlights from the Steelers' 34-28 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh:
Play of the game: With 1 second remaining in the game, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed a pass to Emmanuel Sanders, who then began a series of laterals in which Jerricho Cotchery, Le'Veon Bell, Marcus Gilbert and Roethlisberger possessed the ball. Eventually, Antonio Brown raced down the left side with it toward a possible game-tying 74-yard touchdown, but he slightly stepped out of bounds at the 12-yard line while trying to elude Miami's Chris Clemons.
Offensive player of the game: Miami tight end Charles Clay caught seven passes for 97 yards and two touchdowns.
Defensive player of the game: Pittsburgh defensive end Cameron Heyward had 10 tackles, including a sack, and knocked down a pass.
Most telling statistic: The Dolphins rushed for 181 yards.
Hidden statistic: The Steelers lost to a warm-weather team at Heinz Field in December for the second straight season.
Best pass: Miami's Ryan Tannehill lofted a perfect pass down the sideline to Clay for a 40-yard pickup in the third quarter.
Worst pass: Tannehill didn't see Pittsburgh's Troy Polamalu step in front of a pass to Brian Hartline in the third quarter, and Polamalu returned the interception 19 yards for a touchdown.
Best run: Miami's Daniel Thomas followed blocks from Mike Pouncey on Polamalu and Hartline on Ike Taylor and raced 55 yards on a second-and-1 play from the Miami 29 to set up the go-ahead touchdown.
Best catch: Hartline stretched out and got both feet in bounds working against Taylor in the end zone for a 4-yard score on third and 2 in the third quarter.
Dropped pass: Sanders failed to come up with a third-and-10 pass from Roethlisberger with 2:38 left in the game and Miami's Nolan Carroll in coverage.
Best block: The Dolphins' Tyson Clabo cleared out the right side for Thomas to score on a 4-yard touchdown at the beginning of the second half.
Missed block: Gilbert was no hindrance to Miami's Cameron Wake on a strip sack in the second quarter.
Best tackle: The Dolphins' Olivier Vernon chased down Roethlisberger and held him to an 8-yard run on fourth and 10 with 2:33 left in the game.
Best hit: Miami cornerback Brent Grimes leveled Brown on a third-quarter incompletion.
Biggest collision: Pittsburgh's Ryan Clark knocked out his own teammate, Taylor, on a pass to Hartline in the third quarter.
Missed tackle: Polamalu and Cortez Allen looked helpless in trying to bring down Clay on his 12-yard go-ahead touchdown reception with 3:02 left in the game.
Best coverage: Allen and Clark kept Miami's Mike Wallace from catching a deep pass in the first quarter.
Worst coverage: The Steelers defense allowed Clay to release from a block on Jason Worilds and get wide open for a 6-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter.
Best kick: Pittsburgh's Mat McBriar boomed a 54-yard punt in the second quarter.
Worst kick: McBriar had a punt blocked by Miami's Jimmy Wilson late in the first half.
Best return: Polamalu went airborne to get the ball across the goal line on his 19-yard interception return.
Costliest penalties: Back-to-back infractions (Cody Wallace false start and Ramon Foster downfield illegally) stymied a Steelers drive late in the fourth quarter when they still had a lead.
Best decision: A read-option call by the Dolphins got the Steelers' Jarvis Jones to bite, and Tannehill scrambled for a 48-yard run to set up a Miami field goal in the first quarter.
Worst decision: The Steelers burned a second-half timeout with 12:46 left in the game when Miami lined up for a third-and-3 play. They then used their second timeout before their fourth-and-10 play with 2:38 remaining.
Best effort: Thomas rushed for 105 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries after Lamar Miller exited the game with a concussion.
Unsung hero: Wallace only had two catches for 19 yards - they set up a second-quarter touchdown - but his presence on the field opened things up for Clay.
Challenges: Hartline's TD was originally ruled incomplete, but Miami successfully challenged it.
