Steelers Capitalize Off Dalton Interception; Tie Game On Touchdown And Two-Point Conversion

New, comment

Just when it seemed that the Bengals would take a stranglehold on the game, they did what they do best--shoot themselves in the foot. In another example of sloppiness on Sunday night, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton's odd interception was the sloppiest of them all.

The Steelers had a short field to work with in a short amount of time and took advantage. While the Bengals played a "bend but don't break" defense, they broke right before the half. After churning out some tough yards, the Steelers scored a touchdown on a five-yard pass from Ben Roethlisberger to Heath Miller. After a weird clock malfunction on their two-point conversion attempt, Roethlisberger found Miller again to tie the game at 14-14.

On another note, the attendees of Paul Brown Stadium should be ashamed at the volume of "HEATH" chants. Bengals will sit on it before the half.
