The Steelers brought their A-game right from the beginning. The team took control immediately. The defense was all over Andy Dalton and the offense was able to move the ball down the field. Devin Bush got his NFL sack, but the Bengals still managed to get three points on the scoreboard. The score was 3-0 in favor of the Bengals by the end of the first quarter. The second quarter began with Mason Rudolph throwing a pass the James Conner that would lead to a touchdown. The Steelers were dominant throughout the rest of the quarter. Chris Boswell made a field goal, Bud Dupree had a sack, and T.J. Watt scooped up a fumble. The Steelers were up 10-3 at halftime.
Jaylen Samuels started off the third quarter with a touchdown, continuing the Steelers’ control over the Bengals. Cam Heyward and Javon Hargrave both made sacks, Rudolph sent a touchdown pass to Diontae Johnson, and Watt made another sack. At the end of the third quarter, the Steelers were up 24-3. Mark Barron intercepted a Bengals pass at the start of the fourth quarter. Boswell made another field goal, ending the game with a Steelers win.
The game wasn’t perfect, but it was a start. The Steelers have been on a losing streak for the last three weeks, so this much-needed win brought back some hope for the team. Hopefully the team can carry that feeling into their next game against the Baltimore Ravens.
