The Cincinnati Bengals will remain atop the AFC North division heading into Week 12 as they beat the Houston Texans 22-13 Sunday afternoon at NRG Stadium.
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was 24-of-35 passing for 233 yards in the win and wide receiver A.J. Green caught 12 of those passes for 121 yards.
Had the Bengals lost Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers would’ve had the AFC North lead and would’ve entered Week 12 as the No. 3 seed in the AFC. The Steelers still have two games remaining against the Bengals, however, with the first meeting between the two teams schedule to take place in Cincinnati in Week 14.
In other AFC North action on Sunday, the Cleveland Browns beat the Atlanta Falcons 26-24 on a last-second field goal by kicker Billy Cundiff from 37 yards out. The Falcons took the lead with a 53 yard field goal by kicker Matt Bryant with 44 seconds remaining in the game, but the Browns marched back quickly for the winning score.
The Browns, like the Steelers will enter Week 13 with a 7-4 record.
The Baltimore Ravens will close out the Week 12 AFC North action Monday night when they play the New Orleans Saints.
