PITTSBURGH -- Just one defender separated Najee Harris from the end zone. And the Pittsburgh Steelers running back didn't think twice.
He leapt over Cincinnati Bengals safety Jessie Bates, taking off from the 3-yard line to finish a 19-yard touchdown run through the air. Harris landed in the end zone to tie the AFC North rematch 10-10 early in the second quarter.
Harris was untouched on the play, marking his most yards before contact on any rush this season, per ESPN Stats & Information research. The 19-yard score was also the Steelers' longest touchdown play of the season -- more than doubling the previous high of an 8-yard score.
Entering Sunday's game, the Steelers were the only team without an offensive touchdown of at least 10 yards.
