Recap Pittsburgh Steelers vs Cincinnati Bengals

T.O is Officially apart of the 150 club Congrats, now that is out of the way lets get to the game.
I mean what a game it was, it was like being on acid for 4 hours, lots of trippy shit.
The first half would have been much different if not for those 2 turnovers, and the blocked punt. Even with all the bone headed plays the defense had kept this game some what close.
There was no lack of urgency the Bengals at the start of the game. For a team desperate for a win, to start with a fumble on the opening kickoff and blocked punt after its second drive is inexcusable.
But the key to every game is turnovers, in the first half the Steelers scored 10 points off the Bengals turnovers.
Honestly I could care less for the special teams, but just do me a favor just don't fuck it up for the rest of the team.
For all the criticism that Andre "The Giant" Smith  has taken from local media and fans, he has stepped up and held his own against two of the best defensive players in the NFL.
If this team was disciplined, this season would of have meant something besides a failure.
If it was not for those two missed field goals by Nugent this would of have been a tie game at the end of regulation.
Carson made some mistakes, but overall he played pretty well.
I was surprised when Shipley did not make that catch at the end of the game, even though he is a rookie he is a solid pass catcher.
If it was not for T.O. I don't know what the final score would have been. Needless to say, there are lots of things that the Bengals need to get right, from special teams to cutting down on penalties. If the team can get those two monkey's of their back, this would of have been a great team playing a great season.
If you keep playing like shit in the first half, it only gets harder to come back. Just like previous games the rally falls short, no one to blame but themselves.
Granted the Steelers put 20 points on the board in the first half, but how many of those points was given away and how many was earned.
Geno Atkins and Michael Johnson getting more snaps than ever before and it definitely shows. We are finally getting some kind of pressure on the QB, but the Bengals still only end up with one sack.
Love my Bengals, but the season is over at 2-6.
