Bengals WR Tyler Boyd Doubles Down on Steelers Criticism

The Bengals wideout has been adamant the Pittsburgh Steelers "gave up" in the loss.

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd is no stranger to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but he's never seen a black and gold team play like they did this past Sunday.

Boyd said Monday that the Steelers "gave up" late in their Week 3 matchup. "

"I think the good thing about that win was not only did the Steelers feel that, everybody in the country felt it," Boyd told reporters. "Because the last plays of the game for them, they gave up. You could see it. They had three drops in a row. For a team to see that is giving us more power, giving us the antidote to know how good we are."

The Bengals wideout then doubled-down on his words with a tweet rehashing his thoughts on the Steelers. 

The Steelers fell to the Bengals 24-10 and many point to the team's 4th and goal try with three minutes left in the fourth quarter. Ben Roethlisberger dumped a -1 yard pass off to Najee Harris on 4th and goal from the 11 yard line and had everyone's head shaking afterwards. 

The Steelers are 1-2 following back-to-back home losses. They travel to Green Bay to take on the 2-1 Packer this Sunday.
