Default Re: Another epic collapse averted

IMO Tomlin told Arians to run the damn ball when the lead was cut to 27-21 after Ben threw the pick -
1st and 10 at PIT 29 R.Mendenhall up the middle to PIT 37 for 8 yards
2nd and 2 at PIT 37 R.Mendenhall right tackle to PIT 40 for 3 yards
1st and 10 at PIT 40 R.Mendenhall right tackle to PIT 49 for 9 yards
2nd and 1 at PIT 49 R.Mendenhall right guard to CIN 33 for 18 yards
1st and 10 at CIN 33 R.Mendenhall left guard to CIN 33 for no gain
2nd and 10 at CIN 33 R.Mendenhall right tackle to CIN 29 for 4 yards
3rd and 6 at CIN 29 (Shotgun) R.Mendenhall right tackle to CIN 28 for 1 yard
4th and 5 at CIN 28 J.Reed 46 yard field goal is No Good, Wide Left
DRIVE TOTALS: PIT 27, CIN 21, 8 plays, 9 yards, 5:06 elapsed

Reed screwed up again but the execution was there on that drive which should have sealed the win

But the pick was preceded in the third quarter by a three and out possession featuring three straight passs after the Steelers started the drive at the Bengals 45 with a 20-7 lead and less than six minutes to go in the third quarter

DRIVE TOTALS: 3 plays, 6 yards, 0:35 elapsed

Way to grind it out with a two TD lead Bruce
