Though a bit late, the Cincinnati Bengals have reentered this game following A.J. Green's amazing 36-yard touchdown reception late in the first quarter. Roethlisberger starts the possession with a 13-yard reception to Mike Wallace just as the first quarter expires. Following an overthrow to Wallace, deep over the middle to start the second quarter, Ben Roethlisberger slings a pass to Heath Miller that bounces off the tight end's pads. Leon Hall drives into the deflected pass for an interception, giving the Bengals the football at Pittsburgh's 41-yard line.

Following consecutive runs by Cedric Benson that gained seven yards, Andy Dalton flips the football to Andrew Hawkins on an end around (from left to right) with big Andre Smith lead blocking. Hawkins turns the corner, follows Smith's block and picks up the first down.

Cincinnati eventually setup on third and five from the Steelers 26-yard with Andy Dalton in shotgun, flanking Brian Leonard's left. Kyle Cook snaps the football and Dalton, under intense pressure, tries to find Jermaine Gresham over the middle in traffic (that could have been called pass interference).

Mike Nugent converts the 43-yard field goal, cutting the deficit to four points.
