Steelers flag down Bengals at gun

It was classic Bengals-Steelers and it could have been 1975 or 2017.

Ugly. Nasty. Physical. And the Bengals were on the short end of it when they committed a franchise-record 173 yards in penalties in blowing a 17-point lead in a 23-20 loss Monday night at rainy and perplexed Paul Brown Stadium.

Actually,womens Eddie Jackson Jersey] now that the Bengals are 5-7 and just about out of it, it was most like 2015, it took an agonizing 30 minutes and 13 penalties to eat away at the lead., the last time they played the Steelers in a prime-time elimination game. Then, that was a Wild Card Game where a 16-15 lead was lost in the last 1:23 on a fumble and then penalties. In this one

Kicker Chris Boswell won it with a 38-yard field goal at the gun fittingly after he moved five yards closer on a penalty on Josh Shaw for jumping offsides.

The marquee defensive players from each team left on a backboard when Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier collided with rookie wide receiver Josh Malone early in the first quarter and Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict exited with six minutes left when rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster gave him a cheap shot on a blind-side block and then stepped over him, and picked up a taunting penalty as well as a roughing penalty., straddled him

Burfict was in protocol after the game with a head injury, the Bengals lost cornerbacks Adam Jones (groin) and Darqueze Dennard (knee) and running back Joe Mixon (head/shoulder) during the course of the first half. Jones and Mixon (concussion) was lost for the night and Dennard came back in the second half., as was cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick in your basic Bengals-Steelers slugfest. After Shazier left the field taped to a board after a frightening collision (reports said he had a spinal cord contusion)

the Bengals were down to three linebackers with middle man Kevin Minter not a good match for Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s hottest offense in the NFL.,Authentic Taylor Moton Jersey],Burfict waved his arm to the crowd to signal he was OK. But the Bengals were not. With Burfict gone

first to running back Le’Veon Bell Big Ben just shot-putted the ball into the middle of the field,womens Harrison Butker Jersey, for 18 then to Schuster for 5, then to wide receiver Antonio Brown for the tying touchdown with 3:51 left from six yards out after his 24-yarder on the snap after the penalty. When safety George Iloka was called for hitting Brown in the head,, After Burfict left, then to tight end Jesse James ror 13,Authentic Tarik Cohen Jerseythe Bengals were backed up on the kickoff at their 12.

Then they couldn’t convert a third-and-two when the Steelers rushed three and forced quarterback Andy Dalton to take a coverage sack.,womens Daeshon Hall Jersey,

When the Steelers caught the punt at their 42 with 2:42 left Roethlisberger (24 of 40 for 290 yards, 11 to Bell amd that was it., two TDs and a pick) made quick work to set up Boswell’s winner. Twelve yards to wide receiver Martavis BryantAuthentic Adam Shaheen Jersey

Early in the fourth quarter the Bengals couldn’t get off the field on third-and-10 when Xavier Grimble got about nine and three-quarters on one of those pesky screens and it forced Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin to go for it on fourth-and-inches from his side of the field. Bell smashed for it for ease with nine yards on a night the NFL's leading rusher had to grind on 18 carries for 76 yards.

but Boswell’s 37-yard field goal cut it 20-13 with 10:07 left in the game.,Then the Steelers got a gift when cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick was called for his second pass interference penalty of the night when he seemed to simply defend Bryant on a deep ball. That was a 30-yarder and gave the Bengals 133 yards in penalties. They held

Then the Bengals offensive line imploded for the only time all night and let linebacker Vince Williams walk in for a 12-yard sack on first drive to blow up that drive and the Steelers officially were in the lead even though they trailed.

It was a wild third quarter that saw both teams get touchdowns called back by penalty. It looked like the Bengals had gone up by 24-10 on Dalton’s 61-yard TD bomb to Green that Green turned into a wondrous play when he ran away from two tacklers at the Steelers 20. But running back Giovani Bernard was called for holding outside linebacker T.J. Watt rushing Dalton up the middle.

this one for 27 yards on third-and-16. That made the Bengals 7-for-10 on third-down conversions (that was it because they missed their last four) after they hit just three of 11 in Pittsburgh back in October.,Dalton (a 96.3 rating against a team that holds him 20 points below that) and wide receiver Brandon LaFell saved the drive when Dalton hit him streaking down the right sideline for another third-down conversion

Randy Bullock got back three of the seven points when he hit a 41-yard field goal that made the Bengals lead 20-10 with 3:33 left in the third quarter.womens Taylor Moton Jersey,

And they literally gave the Steelers’ their first touchdown of the night earlier in the third quarter when Bell (killing them with 106 yards receiving) took a check-down pass, linebacker Jordan Evans and cornerback William Jackson both held up and let him walk in the rest of the way for a 35-yard touchdown., high-stepped down the left sideline and on one of the wackiest plays you’ll ever seewomens Curtis Samuel Jersey,

the Bengals couldn’t quite flip the script after taking a 17-0 lead with 31 seconds left on Dalton’s second third-down touchdown pass of the night to wide receiver A.J. Green.,Authentic Curtis Samuel Jersey As the rain began to fall in the dying but dizzying seconds of the first half

But suddenly the karma switched off when safety George Iloka missed an interception tipping off shoulder pad. Roethlisberger then hit Bell for Pittsburgh’s longest play of the half on a 33-yard check-down pass aided by at least one missed tackle. Then Big Ben just stepped back and flung it deep for Brown and the NFL’s leading receiver drew a 38-yard pass interference penalty when Kirkpatrick tackled him to prevent a touchdown.Authentic Daeshon Hall Jersey

That, unbelievably, marking the 19th time in the last 23 game the Steelers have scored in the last two minutes of the half against the Bengals. It’s also the sixth time in the last seven games Cincinnati has allowed a field goal in the last two minutes of the half.Authentic Harrison Butker Jersey' , allowed Boswell to kick a 30-yarder at the gun to cut Cincinnati ‘s lead to 17-3

It marred a great effort by the Bengals in stoning the NFL’s hottest offense on 126 yards in the half and holding the torrid Big Ben to 50 percent completions of eight of 16 for just 109 yards.Authentic Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey,

That’s because they had only 24 plays as the Bengals built up a nearly eight-minute edge in time of possession. Dalton hit 16 of 23 for 173 yards and a 120.4 passer rating while they rang up 80 yards rushing on 5.7 per on the way to converting six of eight third downs.'womens Tarik Cohen Jersey,

who collided with Vince Williams after picking up eight yards on a screen and left with 34 yards on seven carries.womens Mitchell Trubiskyn Jersey Bernard picked up 35 on six carries once Mixon exited and finished with his season-high 77 yards on 13 carries.,It was a tough break for Mixon

Green,who had seven catches for 77 yards in the half,>womens Adam Shaheen Jersey, was blanked in the second half. He kept that last touchdown drive going when Dalton scrambled out of the pocket on third-and-16 and hit Green on a 17-yard come-back route against beleaguered cornerback Coty Sensabaugh. On third-and-11 from the Pittsburgh 15, Green destroyed Sensabaugh over the middle for a 15-yard touchdown catch. That capped a 15-play drive that consumed 6:13 before it all went to hell., the Steelers blitzed two corners and with Bernard and right tackle Andre Smith picking it up

passing Kenny Anderson and Isaac Curtis to become the Bengals’ all-time leaders.,That was the 52nd career scoring strike for Green and Dalton<Authentic Eddie Jackson Jersey,
