Steelers strike first after Bengals punt mishap

Pittsburgh Steelers v Washington Redskins Getty Images

The Steelers got a lucky breeze, Andy Dalton hit the deck, and Ben Roethlisberger seems to like his offense.

Those things have been in short supply lately, and contributed to an early Steelers 14-0 lead.

Bengals punter Kevin Huber lost control of a snap (it may have been blown by the wind), and Steelers safety Will allen recovered. It was originally ruled a safety, but Huber was given forward progress to the 1.

Moments later, the Steelers got a five-point bump out of the deal, when Le’Veon Bell ran for a touchdown and a 7-0 lead.

The Steelers are holding the Bengals in check so far, and even sacked quarterback Andy Dalton. That hadn’t happened in a month, and keeping pressure on him will be critical if the Steelers want to pull the upset.

Roethlisberger just hit Antonio Brown for a touchdown, giving them a two-touchdown lead, as Roethlisberger’s perfect on seven pass attempts.

    Why isn’t this on the front page?

    You are witnessing history. This is the beginning of the magical run. When everyone counted us out, we just rallied the troops. This one will be the sweetest.

    As the seventh in our collection, we will again put an exclamation mark on our dominance over the rest of the league. You are inferior, that’s just God’s will.

    Now after this incredible run, we will start our own league. This will be a league where tackling is legal again, where men will be treated like men and not actors. This central destruction has prompted us to reestablish the integrity and soul of this beautiful game that we created.

    Shocker.

  7. steelersaregodsteam says: Dec 15, 2013 9:13 PM

    Wow, the Steelers completely own the Bengals. By the way, when was the last time the Bengals won a playoff game?

  8. peytonwantsaflag says: Dec 15, 2013 9:14 PM

    My god this league gets closer to wwf every week. Could they make it more obvious?

  11. mswravens says: Dec 15, 2013 9:16 PM

    Why so many fans dressed as empty seats? Where are all the so-called “great Steeler fans”??? Embarrassing!!!

  12. joetoronto says: Dec 15, 2013 9:18 PM

    Wow, the Bungals are getting killed in every way possible.

    The red popgun is perfect for the Bungals, he fold up like a cheap chair in big games, just like the rest of the team.

    Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu are useless.

  16. doctorrustbelt says: Dec 15, 2013 9:23 PM

    Can you believe the steelers corner went around Sanu the long way to make that play?!?

    Mohamed Sanu is too slow and lacks instincts.

  17. steelersaregodsteam says: Dec 15, 2013 9:23 PM

    Dalton is awful! 2-9, 15 yards.

  18. jmblosser82 says: Dec 15, 2013 9:23 PM

    Rustbelt only QBs and defenseless receivers are protected by helmet to helmet, that’s why the ravens weren’t flagged when they destroyed bell on thanksgiving.

    5-8 hahaha
    On the bright side Tomlin is the leading vote getter for Special teams player in the pro bowl voting

  22. doctorrustbelt says: Dec 15, 2013 9:27 PM

    If the NFL referees didn’t give new england a freebie against Cleveland…. the Bengals would be two games ahead of the patriots for the 2nd spot.

  23. steelersaregodsteam says: Dec 15, 2013 9:28 PM

    This is embarrassing!

  24. ravenswhat says: Dec 15, 2013 9:28 PM

    Paging doctorrustbelt…

    lol.

  25. jmblosser82 says: Dec 15, 2013 9:28 PM

    Second Bengal to suffer a broken jaw from a steeler player that I’ve seen.

  26. dennychimes says: Dec 15, 2013 9:29 PM

    So doctorrustbelt, Can we please have all your stats on the Vaunted Cinci offense for the 1st qtr?

  27. steelersaregodsteam says: Dec 15, 2013 9:29 PM

    Ben: 11-11
    Andy (LOL, his name is Andy): 2-9

  28. ravenswhat says: Dec 15, 2013 9:30 PM

    It’s pretty obvious the Bengals aren’t ready to represent the mighty AFC North. STILL can’t handle the steelers.

  29. classyjacklambert says: Dec 15, 2013 9:33 PM

    Man the Steelers are having a bad year and they still own the ravens and the Bengals! Love being a steelers fan!

  30. steelersaregodsteam says: Dec 15, 2013 9:35 PM

    The Bengals will always be little little brother.

  31. jmblosser82 says: Dec 15, 2013 9:36 PM

    What rock have you been hiding under realitycheck? I don’t remember the last idiotic post I got to read from you.

  32. steelersaregodsteam says: Dec 15, 2013 9:38 PM

    Holy crap! Dalton completed a pass!

  33. ravenswhat says: Dec 15, 2013 9:38 PM

    Doctorrustbelt, can you please run some stats on Dalton against teams with a winning record since he came in? I assure you it’s scary.

    Big game Andy!

  34. jmblosser82 says: Dec 15, 2013 9:42 PM

    Godsteam, apparently your a troll that doesn’t understand math, steelers are out of the playoffs again

  35. flash1283 says: Dec 15, 2013 9:43 PM

    Nobody fears the bungles with that sorry QB

  36. steelersaregodsteam says: Dec 15, 2013 9:44 PM

    43 of Dalton’s 48 yards are to his teddy bear.

  37. jmblosser82 says: Dec 15, 2013 9:44 PM

    Ravenswhat, your team has a -2 net points against the steelers. They can’t handle this team either .

  38. drewzducks says: Dec 15, 2013 9:44 PM

    Being thrown around like the red headed step child that he is.

  39. steelersaregodsteam says: Dec 15, 2013 9:57 PM

    The Steelers are God’s team.

    Yes ☑
    No ☐

  40. steelersaregodsteam says: Dec 15, 2013 9:58 PM

    Dalton is a franchise quarterback.

    Yes ☐
    No ☑

    classyjack….ravens and steelers split. dont know what you are talking about. drrustbelt…as usual, when it matters, abysmal andy shows up. see you in 2 weeks

  42. jmblosser82 says: Dec 15, 2013 10:18 PM

    Scoobs I feel bad for the ravens, when was the last time Brady lost back to back? (Yes I know it’s not the same patriots team as in years pass but they are good after a loss)

  43. scoobies05 says: Dec 15, 2013 10:19 PM

    come on now jm…you know thats not how it works. ravens and steelers split two great games this year

  44. classyjacklambert says: Dec 15, 2013 10:19 PM

    I love the fact that we are having a bad year and the ravens and bengals still fear us

  45. mswravens says: Dec 15, 2013 10:26 PM

    …and the 20,000 Steelers fans who bothered to show up politely applaud…

  46. mswravens says: Dec 15, 2013 10:28 PM

    12/15/13
    12/22/13

  47. jmblosser82 says: Dec 15, 2013 10:45 PM

    Scoobs I know big picture that’s not how it works, but strictly head to head steelers scored more points.

    @mswravens, unless you have a time machine then those dates are speculation.

  48. scoobies05 says: Dec 15, 2013 11:03 PM

    dont feel too bad for the ravens my friend. brady does not usually have good games against the ravens. hopefully the trend continues. and as far as the total points goes…ravens have outscored the pats in the last two afc title games…but what does it matter. the teams split the games

  49. scoobies05 says: Dec 15, 2013 11:04 PM

    classy jack…why would the ravens fear a team they just beat? respect…of course. fear…no way

  50. olcap says: Dec 16, 2013 5:10 AM

    Bungles don’t deserve to be in the playoffs. This is a sweep of them by the worst team in the division this year, right? To be beaten twice by this rag-tag bunch led by a heating HC says it all about the Bungles getting to another SB. Ain’t gonna happen in my lifetime.

    uh, what? I know they’re generally not very bright but you’d think a stealer fan would at least have basic knowledge of their wins/losses.

    Sorry, no fan of the Stealers. I just thought that 2 of their 6 wins came via the Bungles this year. My bad.
