Kenny Pickett threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Najee Harris with 56 seconds remaining, giving the Pittsburgh Steelers a 16-13 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night and improbably keeping their playoff hopes alive for another week.
It was the first touchdown allowed by Baltimore at home in four games, and the Steelers (8-8) needed it to avoid elimination. Just like they needed Miami to lose to New England earlier in the day, which also happened.
Pittsburgh can now make the playoffs by beating Cleveland next weekend — if Miami and New England both lose. A lot still has to go right, but a lot went right Sunday.
STEELERS STAY ALIVE
Pittsburgh’s postseason hopes remain intact with the comeback win over the Ravens.
