NFL AM: Steelers WR Antonio Brown Saves The AFC Playoffs

And though on Sunday Ben Roethlisberger continued to throw inconsistently, a thinned defensive line was re-exposed in stretches and Brown's stardom finished the game, they improved, in Pittsburgh, for the Steelers and beat the Ravens.

The Ravens settled for a field goal and a 10-point lead, but two subsequent Steelers' drives that each lasted less than three minutes covered 75 and 90 yards and resulted in two touchdowns that put Pittsburgh ahead, 24-20. The Steelers managed all of 201 yards through the first three quarters, but gained 240 in the fourth thanks to bold-faced names and some not-so-bold-faced ones, too.

Apparently, All-Pro running back Le'Veon Bell acted as Nostradamus as he predicted that Brown would save the day. Roethlisberger has thrown six interceptions over Pittsburgh's last four games, which is almost half of his season total (13).

But what it comes down to, Baltimore inside linebacker C.J.

He then connected with Brown across the middle, the receiver reaching the ball across the goal line for the go-ahead touchdown after it appeared he was initially down. Brown gathered in just one pass before halftime as the hosts ran just 24 first-half plays.

As the Steelers players departed the locker room Sunday night to enjoy what was left of Christmas, donned in division championship hats and T-shirts that read "Hold the North", Foster seemed to put everything into perspective.

"Over there by the heaters before the final drive, he said 'AB, you got to go down there and get the game victor", Brown explained. The Steelers have a far better offense, while the Patriots have shown they can handle the Ravens defense.

I turned and saw the ball and tried to revert back to everything I've learned and ever known since second grade playing football. No Jets receiver had more than two catches and Butler was a big part in that. "It's tough for everybody", Wilkerson said.

So close that he would've suited up in the Steelers' blowout win the day before if he were on the active roster, Ayers said Tomlin told him at the time. This game hurt, but as I said, the 2016 Ravens just weren't good enough. We didn't want [Roethlisberger] to have a good game. "They have a good quarterback and their receivers made the plays".

He's the central figure who gives the Steelers offensive life when they need it most. "Even in tough times, we knew we had each others' backs". That included a one-sided 21-14 victory over Pittsburgh on November 6.

Baltimore is still in contention because Mosley tipped a 2-point conversion pass against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

With the Ravens' secondary missing Jimmy Smith, it's time for Brown to eat. Yet when Pittsburgh went to its no-huddle, whatever swagger the Ravens had disappeared. My brothers came through and played great. "So to come back and win it is pretty special".

The Ravens defense, which has spent weeks as the top-ranked unit in the National Football League this season, gave up 21 points in the fourth quarter.

And ultimately, the season.

RIVALRY RENEWED: Pittsburgh's victory ended a four-game losing streak to the Ravens.
