The Pittsburgh Steelers were dealt a crushing blow in their hopes of repeating as AFC North champions for the second consecutive season in losing to the Cincinnati Bengals 16-10 in Week 8. After the game, the team took to Twitter to discuss not only the loss, but also the loss of a teammate in regards to Le'Veon Bell's knee injury.
In regards to loss, there wasn't much to say from the team, and rightfully so.

As for the potential loss of Bell to an offense just brimming with talent, plenty of players offered their support, via social media.
