Kenny Pickett’s Game-Winning Drive Keeps Steelers Playoff Hopes Alive With 16 -13 Win

A game-winning touchdown pass from Kenny Pickett to Najee Harris kept the Steelers in the playoff hunt.

BALTIMORE — The Pittsburgh Steelers got all the help they needed from outside forces, and pulled off a thrilling win themselves to keep their playoff hopes alive. They trailed by four inside of two minutes remaining before Kenny Pickett hit Najee Harris for a game-winning touchdown with 1:02 left to cap the clutch, 80-yard march and secure a season-extending 16-13 win.

  • Pittsburgh QB Kenny Pickett connected with Najee Harris for the go-ahead touchdown with 56 seconds to play.
  • Baltimore held a 10-point second-half lead and then failed to score on its final four possessions.
  • The Steelers, who would’ve been eliminated from playoff contention with a loss, now need a win next week along with losses from Miami and New England to make the postseason. Per Austin Mock’s model, the Steelers’ playoff odds jumped from 2.3 percent entering Week 17 to 18.1 percent after beating the Ravens
