5 takeaways not enough for Steelers in Rudolph's 1st start

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Mason Rudolph delivered two big plays in his first career start in place of the injured Ben Roethlisberger.

Rudolph and the rest of the Pittsburgh Steelers' offense couldn't do much of anything outside of those two long touchdowns and ended up losing a game the San Francisco 49ers kept trying to hand them.

James Conner lost a fumble with Pittsburgh protecting a lead late in the fourth quarter and the Steelers' opportunistic defense couldn't come up with a key late stop in a 24-20 loss on Sunday that sent the team to its second 0-3 start since 2000.
