The Steelers benched Mason Rudolph with 12:36 remaining in the third quarter.
The only question is: What took Mike Tomlin so long to make the change?
Rudolph was 8-of-16 for 85 yards with a red zone interception.
The Steelers trailed the winless Bengals 7-3 at halftime, but Tomlin gave Rudolph another series. After a three-and-out, the decision was made for Tomlin.
