Week 8 2015 the Bengals remained undefeated when they bested AFC North Division rival the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field by a score of 16-10. It was a different story week 14 when the Steelers defeated the Bengals 33-20 at Paul Brown stadium.
This regular season split set the stage for an epoch match up during the 2015 Wildcard Weekend. The Steelers were in control late into the game when the Bengals went ahead 16-15 on a touchdown by A.J. Green. Then Vontaze Burfict intercepts back up quarterback Tom Landry to seal the game…or did he?
The first play from scrimmage thereafter Jeremy Hill coughs up the ball, the Steelers recover and then Burfict goes from hero to zero when he lays an illegal hit on Antonio Brown to give the Steelers a chip shot field goal for the win.
The Bengals will learn from this loss and make amends in week 2.
Andy Dalton, A.J. Green and the Bengals offense will expose a below average Steelers defense on route to another win at Heinz Field.
