Steelers Can Clinch Playoff Berth With Win vs. Washington, AFC North Title Must Wait



The Pittsburgh Steelers can still clinch a 2020 NFL playoff berth on Monday, but they’ll have to wait another week to have a shot at wrapping up the AFC North title.

The Steelers entered the weekend needing either a win against Washington on Monday or a Sunday loss by either the Indianapolis Colts, Las Vegas Raiders or Miami Dolphins to assure a postseason trip.

All three of those teams won on Sunday, with the Raiders escaping New York with a last-minute win over the Jets, the Dolphins beating the Cincinnati Bengals and the Colts topping the Houston Texans.

While the Steelers still have a shot a clinching a playoff berth, they will have to wait at least one more week to be assured of an AFC North title.

The Steelers could have secured the division with a win and a Cleveland Browns loss this week, but the Browns defeated Tennessee, 41-35 to improve to 9-3 and keep pace, three games behind the Steelers in second place in the division.
