We have a game in Cincy



Posted by ESPN.com’s James Walker


CINCINNATI -- Now it’s getting very interesting between the Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Cincinnati’s defense made a big play to start the second half, which has narrowed Pittsburgh’s lead to 13-9. Bengals starting cornerback Johnathan Joseph recorded a pick off Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and took it back for a 30-yard touchdown.

Long snapper Brad St. Louis had a high snap that thwarted the extra point attempt. He also had a bad snap in the season opener against the Denver Broncos.

The Steelers began the second half sloppy. Receiver Limas Sweed was unable to hold onto a potential touchdown catch, and kicker Jeff Reed missed a 52-yard field goal attempt wide left.

After Pittsburgh jumped out to a 13-0 lead in the second quarter, the Bengals are showing a lot of fight to answer with nine straight points at home.
