ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson was inconsolable for letting a victory slip through his hands. The Pittsburgh Steelers weren't going to let him or Buffalo get a second chance.With his head down at the end of the bench, Johnson couldn't watch as Shaun Suisham hit a 41-yard field goal with 2:14 left in overtime to secure the Steelers' 19-16 victory Sunday.It was a dramatic turn of events for the Bills and Johnson, in particular, after he could've ended the game in Buffalo's favor on the previous possession but dropped what would have been a 40-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick.
• Shaun Suisham, playing his second game with the Steelers, kicked four field goals, the final one coming with 2:14 remaining in OT.
• Rashard Mendenhall had a career-high 36 carries for 151 yards and a TD. It's the most rushes for a Steelers player since Willie Parker's 37 in Week 17 of 2006.
• Hines Ward (seven receptions, 107 yards) recorded his 28th career 100-yard receiving game, extending his own Steelers record.
• The Bills tied an NFL record with their third OT loss this season. Buffalo is the fifth team to lose three games in overtime in a season and first since the 1997 Cardinals.

From Elias: The Bills loss was their third in Overtime this season, tying the NFL record for Most Overtime losses in a single season... They are just the fifth team in NFL history with 3 overtime losses in one season, and the first since The Cardinals in 1997 to do it... Only one of the previous 4 teams finished at least .500 on the season, while the Bills loss today assures them of their seventh straight losing season.[+]
