The Bengals have one game left, at home next Sunday vs. Baltimore.

Sunday’s win at Heinz Field, which has not been kind to the Bengals over the years, was a welcome sight.

Bengals hang with Steelers, but come up short in 4th quarter

 

Andy Dalton on a rollout

CINCINNATI, OHIO — The first sellout crowd of the season at Paul Brown Stadium, 63,262, witnessed a classic AFC North Division game between Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. There was good defense, some scoring and several big plays.

The veteran Steelers beat the Bengals, 24-17.

Rashard Mendenhall scored two rushing touchdowns for the Steelers including the game winner of 9 yards late in the third quarter.

With the loss, the young Bengals 5-game winning streak comes to an end.

Cincinnati rookie quarterback Andy Dalton had a decent game of 15 for 30 for 170 yards, 2 TD’s and 2 interceptions. But he handled all of the Steelers schemes on defense better than expected.

With the two touchdowns on Sunday, Dalton now has 14 overall, the most of any NFL rookie quarterback in his first nine games since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Dalton did not suffer any sacks. The Steelers usually feast on rookie quarterbacks.

With the win, Pittsburgh is 7-3 and the Bengals fall to 6-3.

Top pass receivers in the game for Pittsburgh includes Antonio Brown 6 catches for 86 yards and Mike Wallace 6 catches for 54 yards. For Cincinnati, Andrew Hawkins 5 receptions for 56 yards and A.J. Green 2 for 36 yards and 1 touchdown.

On the ground, the Bengals Cedric Benson led all ball carriers with 57 yards on 15 carries.

Roethlisberger returns as Steelers steamroll Browns, 28-10; Colt McCoy shines for Browns

When the 2010 NFL training camps opened, most NFL experts around the country felt the Steelers would be in trouble having to use backup quarterbacks Dennis Dixon, Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich during Ben Roethlisberger’s four-game suspension.

Well, the Steelers are going to overcome any adversity and they did. Even without their suspended QB Ben Roethlisberger, for violating the NFL’S personal conduct policy after a Georgia college student accused him of sexually assaulting her in a bar back in March, the team went 3-1.

Ben Roethlisberger returned Sunday for a home game against the injury-riddled Cleveland Browns and looked like he never missed a game or practice. He threw 3 touchdown passes and with the help of the defense, pushed the Steelers in control of the AFC North Division.

The Steelers are 4-1 and back in first place in the division as they will embark on a tough three-game road road trip to Miami, New Orleans and Cincinnati. Those are three cities where it is tough to win and the Steelers say they’re ready for the challenge.

The bright spot for the Cleveland Browns is that rookie QB Colt McCoy played as if he was an NFL veteran against one of the top 5 defenses in the league. Starting due to ankle injuries to veterans Seneca Wallace and Jake Delhomme, the former Texas Longhorns star showed why he was a Heisman candidate the past two years, going 23 of 33 passing for 281 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.
