So here I'm gone for two weekends in a row and the Bengals win. Then I'm gone for half of Sunday and the Bengals are winning...but then I get home and they lose. DAMMIT!
They played great in the 1st half. The 2nd was a different story as the Steeler D made some changes and completely shut down Palmer and Rudi. A combination of Steeler errors(10 points in 5 red zone trips) and a relentless pass rush by the Bengals kept the game close.
It was a letdown game by Pitt, but Cincy deserves credit for playing some smashmouth football on D.
