Jonathan Dwyer and the Steelers offensive line have seemingly had enough of the doubters, nay sayers, and non believers. They took it upon themselves to take over late in the game and help Pittsburgh gain ground in a key AFC North win over the Bengals on Sunday night, 24-17.It hasn’t been very often this season that we’ve able to say that the Steelers were an efficient team on the ground, but on Sunday night in Cincinnati they were just that. If you’re an old school Steelers fan; one who loves the ground and pound along with a tough defense then you have to love what you saw at Paul Brown stadium.
