   GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Le'Veon Bell scored a 1-yard touchdown with 1:28 left and the Pittsburgh Steelers withstood Green Bay's last throw into the end zone, dealing the Packers' playoff hopes a blow with a wild, 38-31 win Sunday.
   Bell soon scored five plays after scrambling Packers quarterback Matt Flynn fumbled while being tackled by safety Troy Polamalu. The Steelers recovered at the Green Bay 17.
   Micah Hyde returned the ensuing kickoff 70 yards and the Packers (7-7-1) moved through the snow to the Pittsburgh 1. After a penalty, Flynn's pass was incomplete on the final play.
   Despite the win, Pittsburgh (7-8) was eliminated from the playoff race after the Chargers beat the Raiders.
   The Steelers won after overcoming a rarely seen illegal batting penalty that negated a blocked field goal.
