The Ravens we're less than 100 seconds from living to see another day in the playoff race.
But Ben Roethlisberger led a feverish charge down the field, capping a 10-point rally to come from behind to beat the Ravens, thus winning the AFC North and eliminating the Ravens from playoff contention.
The two teams combined to score 31 points in the fourth quarter, but it was the Steelers who scored last.
And it wasn;t just that they scored, but how they scored. Antonio Brown, who was held in check in the first half, reminded the entire NFL why he's the best wide receiver in the league.
With under 14 seconds left, Roethlisberger found Brown over the middle, and the former Central Michigan Chippewa fought through three Ravens to get just the slightest ammount of the football over the goal line.
It was the exact moment the Ravens' playoff hopes ended.
It's a moment Ravens fans will want wiped from their memories: A late-game comeback by their arch rivals, one that dashed any hopes of making the playoffs.
A true Christmas heartbreak.
