The Cincinnati Bengals did something on Sunday that they hadn’t done since 2015 and that is beat the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field.

The Bengals used an outstanding defensive performance and a much-improved offensive outing to roll to a 24-10 division win.

Last week, Joe Burrow saw his pass attempts without an interception streak (200) come to an end when he threw three straight picks in their 20-17 loss to the Chicago Bears.

This week didn’t get off to the best start for Burrow either as he threw another interception on the Bengals’ second offensive possession.

However, Logan Wilson answered back with an interception of his own and Burrow responded by leading the Bengals down the field hitting Tyler Boyd for a 17-yard touchdown making it 7-0.

Right before halftime, the Steelers found some rhythm and punched it in for a touchdown to tie the game at 7-all.

The Bengals had a little over a minute to score and with 37 seconds left, Burrow hit Ja’Marr Chase for a 34-yard touchdown to take a 14-7 lead into the break.

The start of the third quarter was massive for the Bengals as they took their opening drive down the field but settled for a field goal to making it a 17-7 ballgame.

Wilson would then come up with his second interception of the game and three plays later, Burrow hit Chase again for a nine-yard touchdown to make it 24-7.

The Cincinnati defense would only give up a field goal the rest of the way cruising to a big win over a big rival.

After the rough start, Burrow went on to finish with 172 passing yards and three touchdowns.

With that being said, how would you grade Burrow’s performance in his first career win over the Steelers?

Sticking on the offensive side of the ball, it was yet another big day for Ja’Marr Chase as he hauled in four receptions for 65 yards and two touchdowns.

Chase has been everything we were hoping he would be if not better. So, how would you grade his performance against the Steelers as well?
