Today the Cincinnati Bengals finally stood up to the Steelers and beat them 23-20. The first half the Bengals were too emotional, getting outside of themselves, and the Steelers looked like they were going to destroy the Bengals. The Steelers were laughing and happy. The Bengals fell behind 13-0 and let's face it, if you are a Bengals fan, you thought it was over.

Then, the second half began. Jonathan Joseph picked off Steeler QB Benji Roethlisberger and returned it for a TD. Bengals miss the extra point, and you think here we go again. But the defense held on until the fourth quarter. Cedric Benson had a twenty three yard run for a TD, thanks to good blocking. They had finally sacked Benji and the Bengals were able to drive from their twenty nine for a touchdown to go ahead. With a fourth and ten from the Steelers fifteen, QB Carson Palmer found running back Brian Leonard at the nine. Remember him from Hard Knocks? Leonard dove for the the extra two yards to three yards to save the drive. And Carson found Andre Caldwell in endzone for the go ahead score. Coach Marvin Lewis finally gets his first home victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It's sweet revenge against a team that has maimed our players and destroyed our playoff chances. Take that you Steeler bums.

Who dey! Who Dey! Who Dey think gonna beat those Bengals. NOOOOBODY. And definitely not the Steelers. Here are video highlights.
