Research Notes

  • The Bengals held the Steelers to 13 yards after contact on 16 rushes Monday. Steelers running backs did not gain more than 2 yards after contact on any rush. Through the first two weeks, the Bengals have allowed 0.95 yards after contact per rush, tied for second in the league.

  • The Bengals sacked or put Ben Roethlisberger under duress on 11 of his 40 dropbacks (27.5%) Monday and he was 1-9 for 1 yard and an interception on those plays. It is his lowest yards per attempt while under duress in a game since 2009 (min. 5 attempts).

  • Ben Roethlisberger struggled on passes that traveled 15 or more yards downfield Monday, completing 4-15 attempts (26.7%). Of his 11 incompletions on such throws, 9 were the result of overthrows. Monday was the first time Roethlisberger has had 9 overthrows on passes of any length in a game since 2006.

  • Andy Dalton completed 17-20 passes 5 yards or fewer downfield for 134 yards Monday, including 4-4 on third down (led to three first downs). In two meetings with the Steelers last season, Dalton completed a combined 17 passes on such throws and was 2-6 on third down (zero first downs).

  • Giovani Bernard scored the first two touchdowns of his NFL career Monday night, offering a nice change of pace for the Bengals offense. The Bengals averaged 7.2 yards per play on Bernard touches, including his 27-yard game-winning touchdown reception, and 4.9 yards per play on other plays.

  • The Steelers have gone eight games without 100 rushing yards, tied for the longest streak in franchise history and the longest active streak in the NFL.
