See the reactions from Twitter following the Steelers come from behind victory over the Bengals Monday night.
It was a battle of division rivals as the Cincinnati Bengals hosted the Pittsburgh Steelers in an AFC North matchup Monday night at Paul Brown Stadium. While the Steelers fell to a 17-0 deficit right before halftime, they were able to overcome it and come out victorious after a game-winning field goal by Chris Bosworth with no time left.
While the big-named players all came out to play, the game unfortunately was highlighted by a slew of horrible injuries. Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier was taken to University of Cincinnati Medical Center in an ambulance after suffering a back injury and being carted off the field in the first half. Other injuries included Bengals RB Joe Mixon (concussion), cornerback Adam Jones (groin injury), and Vontaze Burfict, was also got knocked out the game after an illegal hit by Steelers WR Ju Ju Smith-Schuster in the 4th quarter. It appears Ju Ju will be getting some sort of fine by the NFL in the coming days as he was blantantly targeting.
As for the game itself though, it was a come from behind victory by the Steelers & Big Ben, who threw for 290 yards & 2 TD's. Running Back LeVeon Bell had 76 yards on the ground and another 106 yards receiving while catching 1 touchdown. Antonio Brown also did his thing and caught 8 balls for 101 yards and had 1 touchdown himself as well.
On the other side of the ball, Bengals star WR AJ Green balled out, catching 7 balls for 77 yards, and adding in 2 touchdowns. While RB Giovanni Bernard added another 77 yards on the ground, balancing out the attack, but it wasn’t enough to hold off the now 10-2 Steelers from coming back in the 4th quarter.
