Steelers vs. Bengals score update: Pittsburgh and Cincinnati tied heading to 4th quarter

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals head into the fourth quarter of their Sunday night matchup all tied up at 17.

Cincinnati momentarily grabbed the lead on their first possession of the third quarter, going 32 yards on seven plays and ending up with a 48-yard field goal by Mike Nugent.

Pittsburgh answered right back with Shaun Suisham's third field goal of the night, this one from 42 yards out. The field goal capped off a six-play, 37-yard drive.

Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has played well besides two second quarter turnovers, completing 23 of 30 passes for 232 yards and one score. Antonio Brown has been Roethlisberger's favorite target, hauling in seven passes for 96 yards.

Cincinnati has been rather quiet offensively, as the Pittsburgh defense has been on lock down most of the night. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton only has 91 yards passing. BenJarvus Green-Ellis has rushed for 61 yards on 14 carries, but most of that came on the Bengals' first possession.
