Points, finally, in Bengals-Steelers


Points. Finally.

A Chris Boswell field goal has given the Steelers a 3-0 lead with 2:27 left in the first half.

An interception of A.J. McCarron by Antwon Blake set the Steelers up in Bengals’ territory and led to the field goal. The defenses continue to dominate.

The interception came on a pass that was underthrown. Marvin Jones had run past Blake, and a good pass might have resulted in a touchdown.

McCarron and the Bengals keep finding themselves in third and long. Especially in a driving rain, that’s not a good formula.
