Shaun Suisham buried a 23-yard field goal less than a minute into overtime, as the Pittsburgh Steelers survived a scare from the Kansas City Chiefs with a 16-13 victory on Monday night at Heinz Field.

The victory came with a price for the Steelers (6-3), who lost starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to a right shoulder injury early in the second half.

Roethlisberger, who finished 9-of-18 for 84 yards and a touchdown before the injury, left the stadium to have his shoulder examined further according to multiple reports.

Byron Leftwich replaced the nine-year veteran under center and completed 7- of-14 passes for 73 yards, while Jonathan Dwyer finished with 56 yards on 19 carries to help the Steelers earn their fourth straight victory.

Cassel passed for 154 yards on 11-of-26 efficiency with one big interception. Jamaal Charles carried the load with 100 yards and a score on 23 carries for the Chiefs (1-8), who have lost six straight.

Pittsburgh remain second in the AFC North on 6-3 and a 4 game winning streak. This sets up Sundays big Division clash with top of the table Baltimore nicely, however without Roelithsberger they might find it difficult.

Week 11 of the NFL kicks off on Thursday in the AFC clash between Miami and Buffalo.
