Steelers 42, Bengals 21
We were able to finally just keep momentum. The offense was putting up points, and when we’re able to do that…
and our punting game was pretty good…putting them deep in their own territory. So, when we can have everything clicking together, everybody working together….we’re a tough team to stop.– Cam, from his post game interview.
From Scott Brown, ESPN.com:
The Steelers improved their position in the AFC North immeasurably by winning a shootout and improving to 8-5 while dropping the Bengals to 8-4-1. The offense overcame a slow start to overwhelm the Bengals on their own turf as Cincinnati could not stop Pittsburgh’s balanced attack. Running back Le’Veon Bell rushed for 185 yards and scored three touchdowns and Ben Roethlisberger picked the Bengals apart after throwing for just 19 yards in the first quarter.
Cameron Heyward matches a single-season career-high of 5.0 sacks with takedown of Andy Dalton to open 2nd half.
