2008 Steelers 27 vs Bengals 10 TNF

Dominating defense and "just enough" offense wins again as the Steelers suffocate the Bengals on a cold, windy, snowy Thursday night. After the Bengals take a surprising early 7-0 lead, Pittsburgh's top-rated defense (ranked #1 in total defense, rushing defense, passing defense and sacks) clamps down HARD, allowing Cinci just 1 first down in their next 8 drives and rendering a turnover in Pittsburgh territory meaningless after a punt bounces off a confused Limas Sweed just before halftime. Big Ben (17 of 30, 243 yds) throws for 1 TD (Heath Miller) and scrambles for another as the Steelers dominate time of possession 35:20 - 24:40 and hold Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Ocho Cinco-less Bengals under 100 yds passing until late in the game.
