Steelers coach Mike Tomlin accepts Pittsburgh’s fate after Ravens’ win over Browns

Antonio Brown got into'ugly spat with Ben Roethlisberger before Week 17 game

And in Pittsburgh, the Steelers shouldn't have as many playoff wins as the Pirates since 2013.

The Steelers' season ended in appropriate fashion.

Brown was not allowed to play in an "embarrassing" display, as one Steelers player put it. The 2018 Steelers weren't particularly fastidious when it came to protecting the football, but they were downright inept when it came to mitigating their turnovers with takeaways.

The Steelers are now 8-6-1 on the season and can only qualify for the playoffs if they win the AFC North title - a feat that can only be achieved with the aforementioned win over Cincinnati and Ravens loss to the Browns. Bowles said he "thought we were playing two teams" after the Jets were flagged 16 times for a team-record 172 yards in a 44-38 overtime loss to Green Bay.

It marked Mayfield's third touchdown pass of the game. We stand by our work.

The NFL Injury Report for Week 17 has a lot of big names that could miss some pretty important games.

The Steelers did manage to narrowly avoid disaster and beat the lowly Bengals, but it was too little, too late. The Steelers could have also gotten in to the postseason by way of a tie between the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans, but that did not happen. But then Ravens linebacker C.J. Moseley picked him off. Such is the power of a well-timed takeaway in the NFL.
