Bengals Force Turnover, Picking Off Big Ben In End Zone

After the Bengals took a 7-3 lead in the first quarter, the Steelers opened the second quarter determined to take back the lead. In 12 plays, the moved the ball 70 yards and were threatening to score from the Bengals' nine-yard line. That's when Ben Roethlisberger dropped back, took his time, fired a pass right into the waiting hands of safety Chris Crocker.

The pass was meant for tight end Heath Miller, who was in double coverage, and Crocker, being the stellar safety that we all remember, pretty much just wrestled the ball right away from him before going down in a pile in their own end zone for a touchback.

The Bengals now have an opportunity to add to their four point lead by driving down the field and adding another quick score. It should be noted as well that this Steelers driver included two dropped passes, one by wide receiver Mike Wallace (his second on the day so far) and the other by running back Baron Batch. Batch's dropped pass was on a wide receiver pass that, if caught, would have been a guaranteed touchdown.
