Even though the Bengals got off to a slow start -- the Steelers had two touchdowns before the Bengals got one first down -- they made a game out of their Week 10 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Offensively, the Bengals scored on touchdown passes from Andy Dalton to A.J. Green and to Jermaine Gresham and on a field goal, but after Green came out of the game with a knee injury, the offense lost the ability to move the ball down the field.
The defense played really well in the second half and just when it looked like the Bengals might win, a late interception thrown by Dalton sealed the deal. The Steelers were able to run out the clock after that.
It was a tough, close game, but even though the Steelers won we have to remember how young the Bengals are and how well they still played today considering their overall youth and inexperience against the tougher division teams.
Good things are on the horizon.
Now that the game is over, what are your thoughts?
