Bengals vs. Steelers: Takeaways from Pittsburgh's 30-20 Win over Cincinnati
Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

The wind chill was brutal in Pittsburgh on Sunday night, but that couldn't cool down the Pittsburgh Steelers. They had a big first half and held off the Cincinnati Bengals to pull off the home upset, 30-20.

By halftime, the Steelers had built a 27-7 lead and appeared to be on their way to an easy win. The second half, the Steelers got a little conservative, Cincinnati got a little aggressive and the Bengals started to march back.

But in the end, the Steelers defense stiffened and held off the Bengals. This left Pittsburgh's playoff hopes dangling by a thread with two games left to play.

Here are some quick takeaways from the Sunday night win.
