A late field goal seals a win for the Cincinnati Bengals to end the Pittsburgh Steelers' playoff hopes.

The Cincinnati Bengals have clinched a wildcard spot in the AFC playoffs for the second consecutive year, with a 13-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

A field goal from Josh Brown late in the fourth quarter split the teams, who had been closely matched throughout the game.

The low-scoring tie saw touchdowns from Antonio Brown and Leon Hall to keep the scores level heading into the final 15 minutes.

Rashard Mendenhall rushed for 50 yards on his return to the Steelers lineup, having been out of favour for several games.

The loss means the Steelers cannot make the playoffs, having lost eight games this season including their last three.
