Bengals vs. Steelers score update: Cincinnati leads at halftime, 10-7

After late action in the first half, the Cincinnati Bengals hold a 10-7 lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers at halftime Sunday.

Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger hit Antonio Brown for a 60-yard touchdown with just over a minute left in the first half to cut the Bengals' lead to 10-7.

But before that, it was all Cincinnati.

Bengals kicker Josh Brown nailed a 41-yard field goal with less than two minutes left in the first half to give Cincinnati the 10-0 lead. The Bengals' first score came in the first quarter. Leon Hall picked off a Roethlisberger pass and took it back 17 yards for a touchdown. The score came in the final minutes of the first quarter to give the Bengals a 7-0 lead.

Outside of the 60-yard touchdown, Roethlisberger has struggled for Pittsburgh. Roethlisberger has completed 6 of 12 passes for 113 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

Jonathan Dwyer and Rashard Mendenhall have combined to aid the Steelers' ground game. Dwyer has 36 yards on eight carries, while Mendenhall had 34 yards on five carries.

Brown leads the Steelers with four catches for 83 yards and a touchdown.

Andy Dalton is 9 of 15 for 89 yards so far for the Bengals. While the Bengals own the lead, it isn't because of their running game. Running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis has seven yards on 10 carries.
