Steelers Take 24-17 Lead Early In Fourth Quarter On Rainey TD Run

The Steelers took a seven-point lead early in the fourth quarter, leading the Bengals by a score of 24-17 in Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday Night Football. Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers finished off an eight play, 67-yard drive when running back Chris Rainey plunged into the end zone from 11 yards out. The drive just 4:42 off the clock, beginning in the third quarter and was made possible mostly by two third-and-long conversions allowed by the Bengals secondary.

First Roethlisberger completed a 16-yard pass to wide receiver Antonio Brown on a third-and-eight play to keep the drive alive and then he completed a 31-yard pass to Emmanuel Sanders on a third-and-six. Also, despite the fact that the Steelers' top two running backs are out, Rainey has been a part of a fairly successful running attack that has racked up 91 yards at this point in the game.

The Bengals get the ball back with just over 14 minutes left in the game, which is plenty of time to either tie the game and take back the momentum, or shoot themselves in the foot. Hopefully the first thing happens.
