SNF Highlights: Steelers 27 – Bengals 17

12/29/2014

Antonio BrownPITTSBURGH – Antonio Brown had a pair of touchdowns as Pittsburgh wrapped up the AFC North and clinched a home playoff game in the Wild Card round with a 27-17 victory over Cincinnati on Sunday night – but it wasn’t all good news for the Steelers.

Star running back Le’Veon Bell hyperextended his right knee in the third quarter and did not return. Bell set a franchise record for total yards from scrimmage this season.

The Steelers are the third seed in the AFC and will host Baltimore next Saturday night. The teams split their two regular season meetings – with each team winning by 20 points at home.

Cincinnati will go on the road to face Indianapolis on Sunday. The teams met earlier this season in a game the Bengals would like to forget. The Colts won that one 27-0.

Kevin Kugler and James Lofton called the action on Westwood One.
