Brandon Tate opened the second half with a nice 45-yard kickoff return, angling near the right sidelines before he's tackled at Cincinnati's 38-yard line.
It started promising with a third-and-four conversion with 13 minutes remaining in the third quarter, hitting rookie Mohamed Sanu out of the slot for a 17-yard pick up, pushing the offense onto Pittsburgh's side of the field.
Yet we have a problem. It stalled.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis combined for nine yards rushing on consecutive runs, reaching the Steelers 30-yard line. Andy Dalton tries a deep pass down the middle of the field, tipped by Keenan Lewis that likely saved a touchdown.
Mike Nugent converted the 48-yard field goal, giving Cincinnati a 17-14 lead.
