Steelers 27 - Bengals 17
Pittsburgh, (11-5) earned its first division title since 2010 and sixth since 2000 by sweeping the series with their division rival Bengals (10-5-1). The victory did however come at a cost as superstar running back Le’Veon Bell hyperextended his right knee in the third quarter when Bengal safety Reggie Nelson hit Bell low at the end of a 19-yard reception. Steelers’ Head Coach Mike Tomlin exchanged heated words with Nelson after the game but it is not known what was said between the two.

Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger who was battling flu-like symptoms that caused him to miss pre-game warm-ups, managed to complete 24of 38 passes for 317 yards and two touchdowns. He did throw two interceptions, both badly overthrown passes meant for AJ Green.

They are still looking for their post season win however and will have to do it on the road in Indianapolis on Sunday January 4th.
Pittsburgh, who has plenty of playoff experience as a franchise, will look to push for their fourth Super Bowl appearance this decade alone. For the first round, they get to stay home and face their division rival Baltimore Ravens for the third time this season. With Heinz Field jam packed with both Steelers and Ravens ticket holders, this should prove to be one fun physical matchup.

The Pittsburgh Steelers held off the Atlanta Falcons 27-20 to keep pace in the AFC playoff race.
Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 360 yards, creating a career high for the season but zero touchdowns in the victory.

The Falcons were scoreless after the first quarter but a Devin Hester touchdown from quarterback Matt Ryan in the second quarter, two field goals in the third and a fourth quarter Roddy White strike kept them in the ballgame until they just couldn’t get anything done in their final possession with a three and out. Ryan would finish the game with 310 yards in the air, another 27 on the ground and an interception.
Atlanta, whose record is 5-9 are still alive for postseason play due to the weak NFC South division. They head to New Orleans in Week 16 to take on the fellow NFC South Saints who are battling for a playoff spot as well. This matchup comes at a great time and should prove to be a solid battle.

Quarterback Andy Dalton threw for 302 yards and actually made Bengals history when he faked a handoff to Jeremy Hill and ran 20 yards untouched for a score, the longest touchdown run by a quarterback in Bengals history. Sadly, Dalton also fumbled while attempting another fake handoff and the momentum shifted Pittsburgh’s way and never returned to the 8-4-1 Bengals side.
If the playoffs were to begin today, both the Bengals and Steelers would be in at the fourth and fifth seeds in the AFC respectively. Cincinnati will head to Cleveland to face the 7-5 Browns in Week 15 who are fighting for a wild card spot themselves. Cleveland fans should be heading to their computers to purchase Browns’ tickets in advance of this crucial matchup.

In the backfield, Le’Veon Bell excelled with 254 combined yards and a rushing touchdown but it was all for not, as the Steelers were just outplayed on the field Sunday.

Titan’s fans can take this one as a moral victory and look towards the future of the franchise.
Roethlisberger had never won at LG Field before so was able to check this one off his list. His 207 yards in the air and a touchdown performance was enough to get him the win but it was running back Le’Veon Bell who did all the heavy lifting. Bell finished the night with 204 rushing yards and a touchdown, and could not be stopped by the Titans defense.
The 7-3 Steelers get a week of rest and recovery in Week 12 and the Titans look to break their losing streak against a tough Philadelphia Eagles’ team at Lincoln Financial Field.

The Ravens just couldn’t keep up in the second meeting of these two teams this season and the Steelers avoided a season sweep.
The penalty flags flew for Baltimore as frustration began to set in. The Ravens drew three defensive flags on one play alone in the second quarter. Terrell Suggs earned a 15-yard penalty for an ugly hit on Steelers running back LeGarrette Blount’s knees while Elvis Dumervil uncharacteristically picked up another flag two plays later for hitting Le’Veon Bell.
There is still plenty of football left to play in 2014 and it will be exciting to see how this close AFC South division shakes out.
