CINCINNATI (93.7 the Fan) – Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said they were humbled to be a part of this series with the Bengals and what happened Sunday was good for the game of football.

Good in Pittsburgh at least, as the Steelers rebounded after Cincinnati scored with 1:18 left to win 28-21 as Ben Roethlisberger led a 77 yard drive in 1:08.  Roethlisberger hit Antonio Brown from 31 yards out to win it.

“I’m not surprised by it,” Tomlin said.  “Those guys relish the opportunity to rise up in those moments.”

Tomlin credited the play of the offensive line and said James Conner “had a look in his eye” on Sunday.
