PITTSBURGH, PA —
It was over when...
After a 70 yard drive which included 8 straight pass completions and with 3 seconds left trailing 19-17, Pittsburgh Place Kicker Lones Seiber hit the field goal good for the win 20-19.
When Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched at halftime Troy Smith threw for 139 yards and completed 12 of his 14 passes.
With it pouring down with rain, you knew the teams were going to try and establish the run, two of the best run defences in the league.
Even though the Steelers won the game talked about missed opportunities, Ike Taylor intercepting a pass in the Bengals 10 yard line, only three points, William Gay intercepting a pass inside his own 10 yard line only to lead to a fumble that turned into a 27 yard Benson touchdown run... Every time
the Steelers got into Bengals territory they threw an interception or fumbled the ball away.
Defence bailed them out big time. Or was it Joe McKnight who returned one to level the scores 17-17?. Either way the offense didn't produce till the last 2 minutes of the game.
Cedric Benson was mostly shutdown, except for his 27 yard touchdown run.
Immediatley following the Game, Ryan Fitzpatrick was cut, with Dennis Dixon and Ben Roethlisberger due to nurse injuries over the bye week and Dixon to be back starting, Tomlin resigned Rashon Harris and stated that they will keep Troy Smith after is admirable performence
