Check out the highlight photos from the Steelers vs Bengals game. The Bengals defeated the Steelers 16-10 on November 1st 2015.
PITTSBURGH** - With less than three minutes remaining in the game, QB Andy Dalton threw a go-ahead nine-yard touchdown to WR A.J. Green, and K Mike Nugent made a 44-yard field goal to seal the 16-10 victory for the Bengals.
The Steelers scored on their opening drive, going 80 yards in 12 plays. QB Ben Roethlisberger, who returned to the starting lineup after missing the previous four games due to a knee injury, capped off the drive with a one-yard touchdown pass to WR Antonio Brown. Pittsburgh's offense would struggle to move the football the remainder of the game.
On the Bengals' ensuing drive, Nugent connected on a 44-yard field goal to cut the lead to 7-3. Nugent added a 45- yard field goal on the first play of the second quarter to cut the lead to 7-6, which was the halftime score.
Midway through the third quarter, K Chris Boswell connected on a 32-yard field goal to extend Pittsburgh's lead to 10-6. But it would be the final points for Pittsburgh on the afternoon.
Both defenses forced turnovers, but neither offense could capitalize until S Shawn Williams picked off Roethlisberger at the Pittsburgh 45-yard line. Dalton then led the Bengals on a six-play, 45-yard drive that he capped off with the go- ahead score to Green.
Pittsburgh took over but Roethlisberger threw an intercep- tion to S Reggie Nelson on the team's first play. Nugent then made his 44-yard field goal to seal the win.
The Steelers had one last chance to win the game. Roeth- lisberger led the team to the Bengals' 16-yard line, but his final pass was thrown out of the end zone.GAME SUMMARY
