Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

The Cincinnati Bengals made the trip to Heinz Field for the Week 15 edition of Sunday Night Football to battle the Pittsburgh Steelers in an AFC North affair.

The results were not pretty for the team that calls the Queen City home.

Cincinnati put together a woeful performance in a 30-20 loss and had the look of an inexperienced team in its first big game.

Coach Marvin Lewis and the Bengals entered the game with a shot to claim the No. 2 seed in the AFC and sit in the driver's seat for home-field advantage in the playoffs.
