Late Sunday game, Cincinnati Bengals looked to defeat the rivals Pittsburgh Steelers in AFC North.
A Joe Mixon touchdown run gave Cincinnati a 21-20 lead with 1:18 left and the Bengals saw a 5-1 start that would have buried the Steelers at the bottom of the division at 2-3-1.
Then what happened in these Steelers-Bengals matchups.
The Steelers found themselves against the third-and-10 with 29 seconds on their own 41-yard line in desperate need of a big game. You have three of them.
Ben Roethlisberger looked deeply at JuJu Smith-Schuster, who was held by Dre Kirkpatrick to give Pittsburgh a new set of Downs.
Roethlisberger teamed with Smith-Schuster at the next game for a 23-yard win to bring the Steelers into appropriate field-goal territory.
Then, on First-and-10 at Bengals 31, the Steelers chose the perfect game. Cincinnati came with an all-out flash, and Antonio Brown found a seam in the middle just past the line of scrimmage. Roethlisberger gave it to his all-pro-wide receiver, who earned the work for the go-ahead touchdown with only 10 seconds.
The Bengals got the ball back with 10 seconds and could not find a miracle. The Steelers held a 28-21 win and suddenly things are much more interesting at AFC North.
The touchdown was the first day for Roethlisberger, who had a big day in the air with 364 yards and no sales.
