Steelers Vs. Bengals Score Update: Antonio Brown Punt Return Gives Pittsburgh 28-7 Halftime Lead

The Pittsburgh Steelers took a 28-7 lead with a minute remaining in the first half on Sunday. Antonio Brown scored the fourth touchdown of the half on a 60 yard punt return. Brown put on a stutter step move and then burst to the right sideline, easily beating the punter as he went untouched into the end zone for an easy score. Video of the punt return below:

In the second quarter, the Bengals finally got on the board with just over four minutes remaining in the half. Rookie Andy Dalton connected with fellow rookie A.J. Green in the back of the end zone. Dalton stepped to his left, and Green adjusted moving with him and finding a open seam in the back of the end zone for the 11 yard score. It cut the Steelers lead to two touchdowns, but Brown responded with the final minute punt return.

Cincinnati has won four games this season where they have trailed at the half, but the 21 point Pittsburgh lead has the Steelers firmly in control after the first thirty minutes at Heinz Field.
