PITTSBURGH (AP) –Andy Dalton hit A.J. Green for a 21-yard pass in the final minutes to set up Josh Brown’s 43-yard field goal with 4 seconds left to lift the Bengals to a 13-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. Cincinnati (9-6) clinched a second straight playoff berth after beating the Steelers (7-8) for the first time since 2009. Pittsburgh (7-8) was eliminated from postseason contention.
Following a tough loss in San Francisco on Monday, the Steelers returned to Heinz Field after just a few days off looking to get back on the winning track against the St. Louis Rams on Christmas Eve.
