Pittsburgh Steelers (8-7) They cling to life. With yesterday’s victory, in the Week 16by 11-34 over the Cincinnati Bengals (8-7), rivlive in the North of the American League, they remain at least one more day with hopes of being a wild card towards the playoffs.

Mason Rudolph took advantage of the opportunity to start at checkpoints, in place of Mitch Trubisky. The emerging QB threw twice for George Pickens to score, running for 84 yards, and then 66, vindicating criticism for a bad attitude. Plus, he made the catch of the day in the outfield.

Acrisure Stadium saw its team triumphantly again, more than a month later (November 12, 19-23 over Green Bay), to record its second victory over the Bengals (16-10, in Week 12).

Jake Browning, the Bengals quarterback, experienced a nightmare after a third of straight victories, suffering three interceptions and a sack by TJ Watt. It was his second loss as a starter, both against the Steelers.

Cincinnati’s errors were translated by its rival into 17 points. With two carries, one from Calvin Austin and the other from Najee Harris, the home team went into halftime 0-24. In the third quarter, the visitor reacted, with a TD by Tee Higgins, but the second Rudolph-Pickens connection quelled the comeback.

Mike Tomlin refuses to finish, for the first time in 17 years, with a losing record. And since 2003, Pittsburgh has not finished below .500.

However, the Steelers do not control their playoff destiny, despite yesterday’s victory. The closing looks bleak, since in its last two games it faces the Seahawks, and the leader of its division, the Ravens, whom it needs to beat to get closer to the miracle.

In the other duel, and thanks to a 29-yard FG by Tyler Bass, with 28 seconds left, the Bills (9-6) achieved their third victory, beating the Chargers (5-10) 24-22. at SoFi Stadium.
