Steelers hang on to clip Bengals!

The Steelers ran out to a comfortable lead against the Cincinnati Bengals Monday night and this time they held onto it (unlike last year)… Barely!!! Steelers win 27-21 on a defensive stop on 4th down, as the Bengals were 12 yards from taking the lead with only seconds left.
The victory lifted the Steelers’ record to 6-2 and back into a first-place tie in the AFC North with the Ravens.
“We won. I don’t care how close the game was. We won, we won the game. We had to stand up on defense and that’s what we did.”– CB Ike Taylor, who had two pass interference penalties but broke up the final Bungal pass at the Steelers’ 2.
Ike is right, we won the game and that’s the main goal… But we got much to work on to be elite… The Steelers should have been running the clock in the 4thbut instead some ill-advised throwing and penalties almost resulted in blowing a 20 point lead late. I have to admit I knew we had three timeouts left if the Bengals did score to take the lead with under 40 seconds left. Should have NEVER came down to this… Tomlin talked about “learning while you win” and I hope the Steelers listen this week.
NEXT: vs. NEW ENGLAND, 5:20 P.M. SUNDAY – NBC: After three consecutive road games, the Steelers return home to face the Patriots — the third prime-time game in a row for the Steelers. HUGE game vs. hated Patriots…
