Steelers Vs. Bengals: Pittsburgh Dominates Division Rival For 35-7 Win

One week after a close road win over the Kansas City Chiefs, the Pittsburgh Steelers made a statement on Sunday afternoon at Heinz field, dominating division rival Cincinnati for a 28 point win. The Steelers improved to 9-3 while the Bengals fell to 7-5.

Three touchdowns in a four minute and fourteen second span in the first half effectively sealed the win early, as the Steeler defense controlled Andy Dalton and the Bengal offense all afternoon. Rashard Mendenhall and Mike Wallace both found the end zone two times. Antonio Brown scored Pittsburgh's fifth touchdown on special teams, taking a punt return back 70 yards untouched for a 28-7 lead with a minute remaining in the first half

Wallace's second touchdown would add to the lead in the second half, but Pittsburgh spent much of the final 30 minutes controlling the ball and salting the game away for the convincing win.
