Confident Tomlin catalyst on sideline for resilient Steelers

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin doesn't view his decision to go for the win on Monday night against San Diego as a gamble.

Tomlin says he's going to put his trust in his players with the game on the line and, in running back Le'Veon Bell Tomlin he says he's got one of the best in the game at his disposal.

Bell's 1-yard run as time expired gave the Steelers a 24-20 victory.

Tomlin says the Steelers (3-2) are going to play to win instead of playing to not lose and his team has embraced that mindset. Bell says the coaches told him he would get the ball in that situation if it came up.

Pittsburgh has a short week to get ready for Arizona (4-1) on Sunday.
