Another Late Field Goal – Another Last-Minute Win For Pittsburgh – 39-38 Over Baltimore

December 11, 2017
By

Chris Boswell’s 46-yard field goal with 42 seconds remaining on Sunday night gave the Pittsburgh Steelers another last-minute victory as the Steel City team post their eighth straight victory, 39-38 over Baltimore at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

With the win, the Steelers (11-2) captured the AFC North Division title, taking a four-game lead over Baltimore (7-6) with three regular season games left.  Pittsburgh will host New England for the top spot in the conference next Sunday afternoon.  New England takes a 10-2 record into a Monday night game at Miami.

On Sunday, in their fourth straight “prime time” game, the Steelers squandered an early 14-0 lead, and found themselves trailing 31-20 entering the fourth quarter.  The third of four field goals by Boswell, followed by a one-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger to fullback Roosevelt Nix, cut the Raven’s advantage to two points, but Pittsburgh was unsuccessful on a potential tying two-point conversion, and with 6:44 remaining, Baltimore increased their lead to 38-29 on Javorius Allen’s second TD run of the game.

But, Pittsburgh’s Le’Veon Bell scored on an 11-yard run with 3:29 left, and the Steelers’ defense quickly stopped Baltimore to let their offense set up the game-winning kick by Boswell.

Roethlisberger completed 44 of a team-record 66 pass attempts for 506 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions.  With those numbers, he became the first quarterback in NFL history to record three 500-yard passing games.

Antonio Brown caught 11 passes for 213 yards, and tight end Jesse James had 10 receptions for 97 yards.  Bell, meanwhile, ran for 48 yards and two scores, and caught nine passes for 77 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown reception on a first-quarter pass from Roethlisberger.

Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco was 20-for-35 for 269 yards with two touchdown throws and one interception.  The Ravens’ Alex Collins rushed for 120 yards and a score.

Pittsburgh mounted 565 yards of total offense to 413 yards for Baltimore.
