Steelers win Big Game Against Bengals
The Pittsburgh Steelers put on a dominant display last night in their victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, winning 31-10. It was a game the Steelers had to win and they went out and took it with style.
Steelers Defense Clamps Down on Bengals
The Steelers defense was the main catalyst for the win. They focused their game plan on shutting down the Bengals running game and it paid dividends. The Bengals never got their ground game into gear and were held to a total of just 72 rushing yards. This helped to put extra pressure on Quarterback Joe Burrow and he was unable to find holes in the Steelers secondary.
Offense Powers Steelers to Viaory
The Steelers offense also played their part in the victory. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger looked sharp, despite being without some of his top weapons. He put up another 300-yard plus performance and threw for one touchdown. The Steelers also leaned heavily on the running back tandem of James Conner and Benny Snell Jr. who combined for 135 rushing yards and two touchdowns.
The Steelers had a great all-round performance from both sides of the ball to secure the victory. They start their season 3-0 and now look to make it 4-0 in Week 4 when they take on the Houston Texans. With a strong running game and a shutdown defense, the Steelers are looking like the team to beat this season.
