Steelers Win AFC North on Last Minute Touchdown

The Pittsburgh Steelers claimed the AFC North title with a 31-27 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night. Ben Roethlisberger threw a four-yard touchdown pass to Antonio Brown to complete the game-winning drive.

How it Happened

It was a low scoring first half as the Ravens led 6-3 at halftime. They increased their advantage to 16-6 at the end of the third quarter, but the fourth quarter would provide all the fireworks, with a combined 31 points being scored.

Le’Veon Bell would put the Steelers ahead with a seven-yard touchdown run and reception. However, a Kyle Juszczyl ten-yard touchdown run would put the away side back on top. The Steelers got the ball back with one minute and 18 seconds remaining, and Roethlisberger led the offense down the field to retake the lead with nine seconds left.
