Baltimore falls in Pittsburgh and risks losing the top of the AFC. The Lions with a touchdown at the end fold Minnesota and conquer the first success since last December. Brady and Tampa dominate in Atlanta
The pride of the Steelers, the class of Brady, the strength of Lions despair. These are the excellences of the thirteenth day of the NFL which will close with a succulent Monday Night: Buffalo-New England.
The Steelers (6-5-1) are holding on to the season. Ben Roethlisberger will retire after the playoffs, but those he wants to play one last time. The rivalry with the Ravens (8-4) offers yet another unforgettable chapter. After a first half dominated by defenses – 7-3 for the guests at the interval – with an interception launched by Lamar Jackson in the end zone signed by Minkah Fitzpatrick, the final is exciting. Big Ben scores Diontae Johnson twice in the last quarter, and completes the 2-point conversion for 20-13 with 1’48 ”on the clock. Lamar eats the pitch, however, and finds the goal for Sammy Watkins with 12 ”to play. Coach Harbaugh decides to convert from two points, to win it in regulation time, but Jackson lacks the touch: Mark Andrews does not get there. The Ravens slide from first to third seed in Afc.
atlanta-tampa bay 17-30
Day as a professor for Brady, historical nemesis for the Falcons (5-7). The quarterback of the reigning champions throws for 368 yards and 4 touchdowns, with the mole of a pick 6, by Marlon Davidson. The Bucs (9-3) put pressure on Matt Ryan, who suffers 5 sacks, with Ndamukong Suh and Vita Vea unleashed, and in attack they hammer with Chris Godwin, 15 tricks, seasonal record in Nfl, and the usual Rob Gronkowski, author of two touchdowns.
Cincinnati-L.A. Chargers 22-41
It was the challenge between the most promising young quarterbacks: Joe Burrow versus Justin Herbert. The guest wins after a hysterical game: 24-0 Chargers, then 24-22, then a Joe Mixon fumble changes Chris Harris Jr’s inertia and interception to Burrow, who remains on the pitch despite injured his little finger right, closes it. Both teams have a 7-5 record, chasing the wild card playoffs.
The Lions (1-10-1) had been waiting for victory from December 2020. It arrives in the most painful and exciting way: with Jarred Goff’s touchdown pass for Amon Ra St. Brown at the end, from 11 yards. Coach Dan Campbell had messed up as usual in the sprint, Kirk Cousins managed to do worse. Instead of filing the clock and kicking the field goal of Minny’s victory (5-7) he got enticed by throwing in the end zone for Justin Jefferson’s goal, but leaving time for the Detroit rerun. Throbbing and winning.
