PITTSBURGH – Antonio Brown scored a pair of touchdowns as the Pittsburgh Steelers kept their faint playoff hopes alive with a 30-20 victory Sunday night at Heinz Field over the Cincinnati Bengals.
Brown scored on a short TD pass from Ben Roethlisberger then electrified the crowd with a 67-yard punt return for a touchdown as the Steelers built a 21-0 lead in the first half.
Pittsburgh improved to 6-8 on the season, but will need some help to earn a Wild Card spot in the AFC. Cincinnati still leads the AFC North at 9-5, but is looking at a potential Week 17 showdown with Baltimore with the division title on the line.
Kevin Kugler and James Lofton called the action on WestwoodOne Sports.
