Steelers vs. Bengals second half open thread

Tune in for the second half of the Steelers at Bengals Week 14 game.

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

The big question is whether the Steelers' defense will be able to hold out over the course of the second half.

A great effort from the defense in the first quarter was wiped out in a 14-point second quarter performance from the Bengals, and a late drive brought the Steelers within the five yard line, but ended up with a field goal.

The Steelers trail 14-10 at half, and Cincinnati will get the ball to start the third quarter.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been up and down all game, and based on the fact the Steelers have been utilizing the Pistol formation - a half-shotgun look with a running back behind the quarterback who's away from the center, sometimes used to give a quarterback the ability to use an uninjured hand to hand off or pitch - it would seem Roethlisberger's hand is not 100 percent.
