Top Wins During The Marvin Lewis Era: Bengals Beat The Steelers With A Touchdown And Only 18 Seconds Remaining

+ Bengals Beat Pittsburgh With A Touchdown And Only 18 Seconds Remaining (September 27, 2009). Earlier on our countdown, we explored Cincinnati's late game-winning touchdown against the Baltimore Ravens in 2009. The thing about it was that the Ravens were coming off the AFC Championship game in 2008 while the Bengals and their mighty four wins were following up that season with what could have been a five-game winning streak, if not for Brandon Stokley tipped touchdown pass. But before the Bengals beat the Ravens, they had to take on the other team that played in the 2008 AFC Championship game. The Pittsburgh Steelers.

With :18 seconds left in the game, the Steelers enjoyed a 20-15 lead as the Bengals were driving. It took fifteen plays over four minutes for the Bengals to reach Pittsburgh's four-yard line. Palmer takes the snap and fires a missile over the middle to Caldwell, sitting in the endzone and largely uncovered.

Cincinnati's 23-20 win over the Steelers on Week 10 was huge for the Bengals but it was also largely the end of their magical 2009 season to some degree. For instance Cincinnati would 3-5 for the rest of the year, including their 24-14 loss to the New York Jets on January 9, 2010.
