After a promising first half, the Cincinnati Bengals would go on to score 20 points in the second half to pull away with a 34-23 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. With the loss, the Steelers fall to 3-7 with little hope of a winning season, let alone a playoff spot.
It was an embarrassing performance from the Steelers' defense which surrendered 355 passing yards and four touchdowns. Bengals receiver Tee Higgins had himself a day with 148 receiving yards on nine receptions. Perhaps the biggest disappointment was on offense, as they managed to score 10 points the entire second half.
If there is any consolation, their disappointing season may result in a high position in the upcoming NFL Draft, a position that has been unfamiliar to them since their last losing season in 2003. As expected, Steelers social media was not a happy place following their performance in this game.
