AFC North standings: Steelers look to stack wins in Week 14
The Steelers were the only team to win this past weekend while the rest of the AFC North didn’t do themselves any favors.
The Steelers were the only winner in week 13 as they defeated the Ravens. It was a tough game that came down to one of the last plays of the game. Baltimore was not able to convert on a two-point conversion and that cost them the game.
The Bengals were able to battle back against the LA Chargers over the weekend but it did not end well for Cincinnati. They lost the game by a wide margin when the clock struck zero. The Cleveland Browns were on a bye week so they stayed home to watch the chaos.
Pittsburgh is still hanging on for dear life as they hang onto any hope for playoff contention. The AFC North is still up for grabs as we head into week 14 of competition. Every contest from here on out will have giant implications for who makes the postseason and the others that go home early.
San Francisco 49ers (6-6) vs Cincinnati Bengals (7-5), Sunday at 4:35 P.M. ET
It was a tough loss for the Cincinnati Bengals after coming off a blowout victory over the Steelers. They got a taste of their own medicine as the LA Chargers came to town over the weekend. This game got out of hand early as the away club got going early and often.
The Chargers were able to surmount a big lead only to see it start to slip away. The Bengals were able to battle back and make this a one-possession contest. This was not a matchup for them to win as they had costly turnovers that halted their valiant efforts.
LA was able to take advantage and turn those turnovers into points and win by a wide margin. This game was closer than the final score indicated but this was a big loss for the Bengals. It could boot them out of the playoffs if it comes down to the Chargers and Cincinnati.
