A look back at your Daddy's Bengals: 1973 week 7. The Collarbone.

Way back in 1973, Cincinnati went to Pittsburgh in week seven, with the Steelers looking to avenge their only loss of the season. Two weeks earlier, Paul Brown's Bengals had downed the Steelers 19-7 at Cincinnati's Riverfront Stadium. The Bengals would lose to the Steelers in week seven's rematch. While the Steelers would lose their starting QB for over a month to a broken collar bone. The loss of Bradshaw and his lingering shoulder injury contributed to another four Steelers losses in 1973. Ultimately Bradshaw threw 10 costly interceptions when he came back for their final four games of the season. Closing out their 1973 playoff game loss with 3 interceptions.

Modern Bengals fans remember 2005 with broken hearts and the season that might have been. Pittsburgh was only paying Cincinnati back for what might have been in 1973.
