Bengals clinch playoff berth in defeat of Steelers 13-10

Associated Press


Josh Brown kicked a 43-yard field goal with 4 seconds remaining to lift the Cincinnati Bengals over the Pittsburgh Steelers 13-10 on Sunday, sending the Bengals into the playoffs for a second straight season.

Brown missed a 56-yarder earlier in the quarter but earned a second chance when Reggie Nelson picked off Ben Roethlisberger and returned it to the Pittsburgh 46 with 14 seconds remaining. Andy Dalton hit A.J. Green for 21 yards on the next play, setting up Brown’s game-winner.

Dalton completed 24 of 41 for 278 yards and two interceptions for the Bengals (9-6), who snapped a five-game losing streak to Pittsburgh (7-8).

Roethlisberger completed 14 of 28 passes for 220 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions, including his costly mistake in the final seconds that ended Pittsburgh’s playoff hopes.

Between poor play by the receivers all year, poor play calling by OC haley, poor play by Rothlisberger, and no one being held accountable by Coach Tomlin we got exactly what the team deserved.

What a outstanding performance by our D. Haley is pitiful. How fitting to end our playoff hopes with a bonehead play by Ben.
Not to make excuses, but Injuries killed us this year. We lost to the teams we should've beat with fumbles, INT's, stupidity etc. Haley is a useless OC. Tomlin has no control of the locker room, nothing but a excuse machine. Thank God the Cleveland game don't mean nothing....could you imagine if we lost to Cleveland at HOME with everything on line. whew...

Your right blah, goodbye to Wallace, Mendenhall, Harrison and add Hampton......

Wait a minute folks...we still have the Browns game coming up.

And, as a Browns fan I want the Browns to lose so we can guarantee a change in coaches. I didn't like Shurmur as a pick anyway. He was their (default) third choice, as Cowher and Gruden said no.

Btw...could Tomlin and Haley be in trouble?

Are Cowher or Gruden ready to come back?

Steelers need to do some offseason soul searching. They havent been the same since Big Ben forced himself on those young girls.
