American football, NFL results: Pittsburgh beats Baltimore, Detroit’s first win

Baltimore falls to Pittsburgh and risks losing the top spot in the AFC. The Lions with a touchdown at the end beat Minnesota and achieved the first success since last December. Brady and Tampa dominate in Atlanta

The pride of the Steelers, the class of Brady, the strength of the Lions, the desperation. These are the highlights of the thirteenth day of the NFL that will close with a succulent Monday Night: Buffalo-New England.

pittsburgh-baltimore 20-19

The Steelers (6-5-1) are holding on for the season. Ben Roethlisberger will retire after the playoffs, but he wants to play them one last time. The rivalry with the Ravens (8-4) offers another unforgettable chapter. After a first half dominated by the defenses -7-3 for the guests at the break- with an interception thrown by Lamar Jackson in the end zone signed by Minkah Fitzpatrick, the end is exciting. Big Ben scores twice on Diontae Johnson in the fourth quarter, and completes the 2-point conversion for 20-13 with 1’48” on the clock. Lamar eats up 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 arrive. The Ravens slide from first to third seed in Afc.

atlanta bay-tampa 17-30

Day as a teacher of Brady, historical nemesis of the Falcons (5-7). The quarterback of the defending champions throws for 368 yards and 4 touchdowns, with the top of a pick 6, from Marlon Davidson. The Bucs (9-3) put pressure on Matt Ryan, who suffers 5 sacks, with Ndamukong Suh and Vita Vea unleashed, and on offense they hammer with Chris Godwin, 15 tricks, an NFL season record, and the usual Rob Gronkowski, author of two touchdowns.

Cincinnati-LA Chargers 22-41

It was the matchup 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 loose ball by Joe Mixon changes the inertia of Chris Harris Jr and an interception to Burrow, who remains on the court despite injuring his right little finger, closes it. Both teams are 7-5, chasing the wild card playoffs.

Detroit-Minnesota 29-27

The Lions (1-10-1) have been expecting victory since December 2020. It comes in the most painful and exciting way: Jarred Goff’s touchdown pass to Amon Ra St. Brown late from 11 yards. Coach Dan Campbell had been wrong as usual in the sprint, Kirk Cousins ​​managed to make it worse. Instead of shelving the clock and kicking Minny’s (5-7) game-winning field goal, he allowed himself to be seduced by throwing into the end zone for Justin Jefferson’s goal, but leaving time for Detroit’s replay. Throbbing and winning.
