Woodley intercepts a tipped pass with less than 2 minutes in the half. Steelers drive for a TD against the Bengals.
Peppers at 10, which seems low.
Woodley has arms the size of my thighs. Actually I lie, his arms are larger than my thighs. Sigh.
But I'm happy about the score.
Is this where we worry that Ohio offered Conley?
Steelers make good on the 2-point conversion - Miller catches a floater for the score.
The Bengals, in kind, try to return a kick that likely should not have been returned since the tackle occured more or less where it landed, and then they take a knee.
14-14 going to the half. Shaun Suisham is taking a page from Jason Hansen's book and being a force for the Steelers.
Both defenses are having trouble covering anybody, but both offenses are making up for it by droping passes. The Steelers shouldn't get in an ugly football contest with the Bengals, the Bengals have been doing this for years, experience will bring the Bengals this loss in the end.
where Rothlisberger threw a lateral to a receiver to the right who then had a wide open receiver in the left flat but the pass was dropped. Would love to see this type of play used involving Devin Gardner and Denard Robinson. Hope Borges saw this play and took note.
With all the LB and coverage problems osu is having on defense right now, that play is probably good for 6.
Now, is it just me or did that tackle of Sanu first demonstrate that the pirouette is indeed a valid technique for attempting to wrap up the ball carrier?
Not sure they need to with the suspect coverage by the Bengal secondary.
Teams need to hire a guy who just keeps the challenge flag from being thrown on 2 yard gains in the 2nd half.
Multiple Steelers faking injuries (7 and 88) late in the play clock to avoid using a time out or getting a 5 yard penalty.
I have a funny feeling the Steelers will draft Denard. They like to take intelligent QBs and convert them into WRs at the pro level. Ie. Hines Ward, Randel El etc.
is going to be interesting. Ward, Randle El and Kordel Stewart all were well used by the Steelers. Pat White, Matt Jones and to a lesser extent Brad Smith have had trouble finding minutes.
We won. I only watched the first half but the Steelers must have dominated the second half to outgain the Bengals by 3 bills.
