(Reuters) - The San Diego Chargers stunned the Baltimore Ravens 34-33 with a fourth-quarter comeback, scoring the game-winner with seconds to play, on a Sunday when Cincinnati was the only AFC North team to win.

The Chargers (8-4 in the AFC West) trailed 30-20 with about six minutes remaining before Philip Rivers threw a touchdown pass to Keenan Allen and after a Baltimore field goal, found Eddie Royal for another with just 38 seconds left.

Rivers’ rally dropped Baltimore (7-5) further behind first-place Cincinnati (8-3-1). AFC North contenders Pittsburgh (7-5) and Cleveland (7-5) also suffered defeats.

Cincinnati's Bengals squeaked past Tampa Bay 14-13 after climbing out of a 10-0 hole.

A.J. Green caught a 13-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter to put the visiting Bengals ahead for good.

Tampa Bay drove into field goal range on their final possession but a pair of penalties pushed them back and ended their chances.

The Pittsburgh Steelers fell to New Orleans 35-32 as the Saints' Drew Brees threw five touchdown passes.

Cleveland was knocked off by Buffalo 26-10. In the defeat, Browns rookie backup quarterback Johnny Manziel took over for ineffective starter Brian Hoyer in the fourth quarter.   Continued...
