Nobody knows what the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to do week to week in the NFL. They have losses to the deplorable New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but also high profile wins against the Indianapolis Colts. One thing is for certain though, they like to give the ball to their big running back Le'Veon Bell.
He was downright amazing in Sunday's game. He took the ball from the backfield 26 times for 185 yards and 2 touchdowns. But that's not all. He also was playing some with his hands, getting 6 catches for 50 yards and another touchdown. He scored just as many points today as the entire Cincinnati Bengals team.
The Steelers also won the turnover battle today. They were able to beat the Bengals by two. They did not allow any turnovers themselves, while they forced fumbles from both quarterbacks to play for the Bengals today, Andy Dalton and Jason Campbell. Unfortunately for the Bengals, this just continues the mantra that when it is a big game for them, that they fold under pressure. In fact, the only player that had a good game for the Bengals today was receiver A.J. Green, who had 11 catches for 224 yards and a touchdown, which went for 81 yards.
But the Bengals couldn't even get that right for them, because they were outdone in the fourth quarter when Ben Roethlisberger would find Martavis Bryant for a 94 yard touchdown which sealed the game for the Steelers, putting them up 35-21 at that time.
The Pittsburgh Steelers (8-5) will stay on the road next week as they travel to Atlanta to take on the Falcons. The AFC North leading Cincinnati Bengals (8-4-1) will hit the road as well next week as they face the Cleveland Browns in a difficult AFC North contest. The Browns will be bringing everything they have as they fell to 7-6 with a loss on Sunday as well.
