PITTSBURGH — The Bengals have a 14-7 halftime lead over the Steelers.
The Bengals' defense has played well. Check out some of our halftime observations below.
Mixed Bag for Burrow
Burrow made a poor throw to Tyler Boyd on Cincinnati's second drive of the game. The ball was deflected and popped into the air where Terrell Edmunds was waiting.
It was Burrow's fourth interception in two quarters. The young quarterback is 7-of-9 for 111 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. He's played well outside of the interception.
The Bengals' defense kept the Steelers in check for most of the first half. They forced three punts and an interception on the Steelers' first four drives.
Ben Roethlisberger rallied at the end of the half, as Pittsburgh went on a 15-play, 86-yard drive that ended with a 4-yard touchdown for rookie tight end Pat Freiermuth.
Big Time Play
The Bengals had multiple standout plays in the first half, but Boyd got things going with a great catch and run for a touchdown. Watch the play below.
The Bengals Will Win If...
They continue to make Roethlisberger and the Steelers' offense uncomfortable. Pittsburgh's offense has struggled for most of the game. The Bengals need to continue to win the battle in the trenches.
They also need their offense to get going. Burrow doesn't have Tee Higgins, but they should still be an explosive unit.
Getting Joe Mixon into a rhythm on the ground could make things easier on the entire offense.
