Pittsburgh Steelers: 5 Lessons from the Bengals Win

It wasn't pretty at times and there were a couple mistakes that could have been very costly, but overall, the Steelers played well and managed to climb back to a .500 record on Sunday night after winning in Cincinnati 24-17.

With the win over the division rival Bengals, the Steelers took over second place behind the Baltimore Ravens.

The Ravens did the Steelers a solid favor by getting hosed in Houston earlier in the day in a game that wasn't nearly as close as the 43-13 score would suggest. (As an aside, one has to wonder if the Ravens are in the process of falling apart. Their offense struggles on the road and their defense seems to get weaker every week. Their bye certainly came at a very good time for them.)

A win over the Washington Redskins next week will pull the Steelers to within a game of the idle Ravens, who don't play again until November.

Before we get to next week, though, let's look at what bits of information we can glean from last night's big win.
