Geno Atkins Quarterback Sack Forces The Steelers To Punt

After winning the coin toss and deferring to the second half, the Bengals open the game on defense at Pittsburgh's 34-yard line after an impressive Chris Rainey 34-yard kickoff return, sliding from right to the left sidelines. Jonathan Dwyer received the game's first offensive play of the game, turning the right edge and finding a lane down the right sidelines for 13 yards.

After a couple of minimal gains by Dwyer, the Steelers have third and seven at midfield with over 13 minutes remaining in the first quarter. Geno Atkins wrapped around and sacked Ben Roethlisberger for the quarterback sack, giving him 11.5 on the season.

Bengals will open at their own 12-yard line.
