The Pittsburgh Steelers have secured a 20-19 win over the Baltimore Ravens after the Baltimore team missed a last-second conversion to win the game.

The Ravens struggled to get in to field goal range but Colin Kaepernick lined up to kick on fourth-and-12 and missed.

An onside kick secured the game for the Steelers.

In other games on Sunday, New England Patriots beat Jacksonville Jaguars 31-20, while the Los Angeles Rams beat Arizona Cardinals 21-16.

Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh conceded after the game that he “made a horrible mistake”.

The Ravens’ Ravens had not won on the road at Pittsburgh since 2004.

“We let him play. I know this would never be acceptable to anybody else, but I thought we had an edge with our players,” said Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin.
