CINCINNATI -- The Bengals are bungling once again.

The first quarter just ended, but the boos are out early in Paul Brown Stadium.

So far Cincinnati's has allowed 10 quick points, punter Kyle Larson booted a kick off the side of his foot, and the offense has yet to get a first down.

The Steelers lead 10-0 after one quarter and Bengals fans are uneasy about what they're seeing. Unless the Bengals turn things around fast, the rout might be on.

Update: Bengals rookie linebacker Keith Rivers (jaw) is declared out for the rest of the game.
