The Cincinnati Bengals ran away with their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the second half. If it wasn’t for a very late touchdown by the Steelers, the game would have looked like it actually played out, a second half whooping.
Here are some of the best tweets from Sunday’s win:
Samaje Perine goes off
Perine has been somewhat of a polarizing player among fans. However, no one will be cursing his name for a while after his three-touchdown performance. He fought for two of them getting the ball inside the pylon. Safe to say no one ‘should’ hate Perine getting the ball anymore.

They need to worry about Perine.— Chris Hubbard “HUB” (@hubba_29) November 21, 2022
Trent Irwin gets his first touchdown
Irwin got his touchdown taken away against the Carolina Panthers before the bye week, but he made sure there was no doubt about this one. You can really tell the chemistry this team has with how many players celebrate with him following the play.
Great play call by ZT— Taylor (@_TaylorCornell) November 20, 2022
Bengals defense take a bow
Cincinnati shutdown quarterback Kenny Picket and the Pittsburgh offense in the second half. It took nearly the whole second half for them to even get a first down, and the rookie had nowhere to throw the ball, was constantly rushing his throws and was rarely even throwing catchable passes. A very satisfying way to put the Steelers to bed.
0/4 on 3rd downs for the Steelers in the 3rd quarter. T.J. Watt individually gets Pittsburgh 3 points on a random play.— Jake Liscow (@JakeLiscow) November 20, 2022
Kudos to Lou and the defense on the adjustments for a nice 2nd half after giving up 20 points in the first.— Andre Perrotta (@andreperrotta13) November 21, 2022
I was told today that Kenny Pickett can be the next Joe Burrow by a Pittsburgh talking head.— Bengalorian (@thebengalorian) November 21, 2022

For the second straight year, Zac Taylor rewards Mike Hilton by letting him by the back guy on the kneel down team when Hilton faces the Steelers team that “gave up on him.”— Charlie Goldsmith (@CharlieG__) November 21, 2022
