The Pittsburgh Steelers are hosting the Baltimore Ravens in a Week 16 showdown at Heinz Field.
There is a wild AFC North game going on at Heinz Field this Christmas Day, as the Steelers and Ravens are battling with playoff inmplications on the line. Kyle Juszczyk is helping matters for Baltimore, with a late dive into the end zone.
On 1st and Goal from the 10, Joe Flacco handed the ball to Juszczyk. He scurried up the middle, and nearly was stopped short ofthe goal line. But he mustered a last bit of strength and powered his away into pay dirt and gave the Ravens a huge lead with 1:25 to go in the game.
It’s been a back and forth battle throughout the second half, as the halftime score saw the Steelers with a slim 7-6 lead. With his effort, it pulled the Ravens ahead by a 27-24 after the extra point. It put a big hush over the crowd at Heinz Field, as they thought the Steelers were on point to win the game right there.
The entire second half has been a defensive struggle for both teams, a polar opposite of the first-half. Touchdowns were coming almost instantly from one another, and Juszczyk just added to the display.
The touchdown puts the Steelers chances of victory in extreme jeopardy, with only 1:21 remaining for them to pull off something. Ben Roethlisberger is a magic maker on most days, but it doesn’t leave him much time to construct a comeback worth of winning the game and the division.
A win for Baltimore would keep their playoff hopes alive, while a Pittsburgh win would claim the AFC North and put the Ravens’ playoff hopes on life support.
