Bengals move ahead of Steelers

Posted: Updated:

Ben Roethlisberger threw a game changing interception in overtime Sunday in Dallas allowing the Bengals to jump ahead of the Steelers in the chase for the final wild card spot in the AFC.

Tied with the Cowboys in Dallas, Roethlisberger's pass set up a game-winning field goal for Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey.  The loss dropped Pittsburgh to 7-7, now a game behind the 8-6 Bengals.

Bengals and Steelers play next Sunday in Pittsburgh.  If the Jets lose Monday night or next Sunday, the Bengals will clinch a playoff spot with a win at Heinz Field.

The Bengals can still win the AFC north with two wins the final two weeks and two losses from Baltimore.
