The Cincinnati Bengals did their best to mount a comeback in the second half, but the Pittsburgh Steelers held on to win 30-20.

For the Steelers, the win means they are still in the mix for the playoffs, and for the Bengals, the loss means they are now fighting for which playoff seed they will get. The game was not as close as the score indicated, with the Steelers controlling the line of scrimmage on both sides of the football for much of the game.

The win moves the Steelers to 6-8 and the Bengals drop to 9-5, with two games to go. From a stats standpoint, neither team lit up the box score, but the Steelers came out much more physical, and did just enough to win the game.
