Steelers defeat Bengals 30-20

Posted by Teresa Varley on December 15, 2013 – 11:32 pm

The Bengals culminated a third quarter drive with a one-yard touchdown pass from Andy Dalton to Tyler Eifert to close the gap to 30-14. The Bengals scoring drive was 13 plays, 63 yards, and took up 7:09.

Ben Roethlisberger set a Steelers record with an 11-yard completion to Antonio Brown on the next drive, giving him the most completions by a Steelers player in a season with 338, breaking his own record of 337 completions set in 2009. The drive ended when Roethlisberger was sacked and the Steelers were forced to punt.

The Bengals came right back, driving down the field and on fourth down Andy Dalton hit Marvin Jones for a 13-yard touchdown. The two-point conversion failed, with the Steelers holding on to a 30-20 lead.

The Steelers converted on a huge third down late in the fourth quarter on an eight-yard completion to Emmanuel Sanders to keep their drive alive and force the Bengals to use their final timeout. The Bengals stopped the Steelers on their next third down conversion, forcing a Mat McBride punt and giving the Bengals the ball back. The defense held and took over on downs.

    I know it is a look shot but what is the scenario for the Steelers to make the playoffs. I guess a lot of teams specifically the Dolphins will have to tie. Thanks for taking may question.

    NFL just released statement on Bengals punter hit. They are saying that a punter is a defenseless player throughout the play. REALLY? Can they go and tackle a ball carrier? YES..Let me see if I got this right. They can give a HIT, but can’t be HIT. REALLY?? NFL has blown this call. Here is a new rule they should put in immediately ..ALL PUNTERS AFTER KICKING THE BALL MUST HEAD TO THE SIDELINE AND NOT TOUCH ANY MEMBER OF OPPOSING TEAM.. IF THE PUNTER CAN’T BE HIT, HE IS NOT ALLOWED TO PLACE A HIT, BLOCK OR TACKLE. COME ON STEELER NATION, LETS LET THE NFL HEAR OUR VOICE ON HOW RIDICULOUS THIS RULING IS!!!
