The Steelers will travel to Cincinnati to play the Bengals on Monday Night Football to wrap up Week 13. Which AFC North squad got the win?
Somehow, some way, the Pittsburgh Steelers found a way to get the job done on the road when they went down against the Cincinnati Bengals on the primetime stage on Monday night.
Despite Andy Dalton and AJ Green’s best efforts in the Bengals offense, LeVeon Bell was too much for the Bengals defense, and Chris Boswell’s leg pushed his Steelers squad to a 23-20 win in Cincy. Two touchdown passes in the first half for the Bengals made things tough, but they just weren’t enough to seal the deal as the Steelers pulled off the comeback win.
There was a ton of action to go around on Monday night, and you missed a lot if you didn’t tune in. If you missed the game, you can check out some of the best plays of the night below:
1. Chris Boswell
The Steelers kicker was money on Monday night, delivering the game-winning field goal to put the final nail in the coffin in Cincinnati and completing the Steelers’ second straight comeback win on the primetime stage.
2. LeVeon Bell
The Steelers running back put on a show on the road on Monday night, scoring by air and tearing the Bengals defense up on the ground. He had over 100 receiving yards on just five catches, and even added 76 yards on 18 carries to lead the Steelers in their win.
3. AJ Green
Just like Andy Dalton looked like the previous version of himself in the first half that used to lead the Bengals to playoff appearances, Green looked like the same target that helped make Dalton the quarterback he is today. He hauled in two touchdowns on the night, and was a force to be reckoned with in the red zone.
The Steelers will head back home for a primetime matchup with another AFC North rival as they play the Baltimore Ravens next Sunday night in Week 14, while the Bengals will host the Chicago Bears in their next game.
