CINCINNATI -- The Pittsburgh Steelers rallied from a 14-3 second-quarter deficit and won for the 11th time in 13 games at Paul Brown Stadium, beating the Cincinnati Bengals 24-17 Sunday night. Ben Roethlisberger completed 27 of 37 passes for 278 yards and one touchdown, and the Steelers' defense shut down the Bengals' offense over the final 2 1/2 quarters. Pittsburgh evened its record at 3-3, while Cincinnati lost its third straight game to fall to 3-4. Cincinnati went 80 yards on 15 plays on its opening possession of the game, capped by a 5-yard touchdown run by Cedric Peerman, but managed just 105 yards the rest of the game. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton finished 14-for-28 for 105 yards, one touchdown and one interception as he fell to 0-6 in his career against Pittsburgh and the Baltimore Ravens. The Steelers held Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green to just one catch for 8 yards. The catch was a good for a touchdown, but after Green came into the game with 43 rec...
BEST OF MAXIM
When the Steelers tabbed Todd Haley as offensive coordinator, replacing the oft-criticized Bruce Arians, it was thought he'd bring along with him a pass-happy, downfield attack, utilizing quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's big arm and the troika of weapons surrounding him.
But it hasn't been the case. Pittsburgh currently employs the No. 17-ranked offense and has failed...
Ben Roethlisberger took the snap and went to his knee for the final play, tucking the ball under his left arm before heading to the locker room.
Felt like old times for the Pittsburgh Steelers - and like most times when they play in Cincinnati.

I’m not sure who received game balls last night in the visitor’s locker room at Paul Brown Stadium, but I certainly hope guys like Willie Colon and Heath Miller received one. I would also make sure coaches Todd Haley and Offensive Line Coach Sean Kugler got one as well. It was obvious they knew Mike Adams was going to need help at right tackle and they were able to devise a plan...

The Steelers overcame a first half full of self-destruction to even it up.

I've long blamed Jon Dwyer (along with Antonio Brown) and their unnecessary fumble(s) against the Raiders as the moment(s) that started the recent pessimistic swing in Steelers Nation. Both in the weak team showings and critical fan perception. And not that I hate either guy, I love Dwyer as a future bigtime contributor and c'mon, AB was my 2nd round fantasy pick. It'...
The Steelers are 3-3, tied in the wildcard race with three other teams, and it has to feel great. After losing games they shouldn't lose, the Steelers have taken a decisive first step in the right direction by topping the Bengals 24-17 after trailing early.
Ben Roethlisberger was his usual self, throwing for nearly 300 yards, but the big story was third-string-running-back...
There will be a good bit of talk this week concerning the phantom cramp that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders suffered with about 6 minutes left in the game Sunday night against the Cincinnati Bengals.
It was obvious that the injury was faked so that the offense didn't have to burn a timeout following the sack of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who had gotten...
The blending of volatile dickish personalities of Todd Haley and Ben Roethlisberger compels weekly updates on their working relationships from the media. Through six weeks of the regular season, it had been without major incident. So far, the most significant clash was the admission by THE BEN that he had been at times using plays from the Steelers old schemes under Bruce Arians...
The Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Cincinnati Bengals 24-17 Sunday night and below are my first half notes from the game with the second half notes to follow soon.
A great run back by Chris Rainey to start things off. The opening screen pass to Antonio Brown includes great blocks by Mike Adams and Emmanuel Sanders to free him. Great protection on the first third down conversion of...
The power in the AFC North looked like it had finally shifted, as Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati Bengals ran out to a fast start over Ben Roethlisberger and the division rival Pittsburgh Steelers.Pittsburgh missed ample opportunities early, and it came back to haunt them, while Dalton and Cincinnati took advantage of Pittsburgh’s miscues.The first quarter saw both teams scoring...
