The Pittsburgh Steelers were jubilant after their 24-16 win over AFC North rival Cincinnati Bengals. Why shouldn't they be ecstatic? The offense certainly didn't play their best game, and was still able to post 24-points on a very good Cincinnati defense. Throw in the fact the elements caused some issues, and there is no way anyone in the team's locker room will be upset about the Week 2 victory.
Possibly the best part of the Pittsburgh victory was the amazing play by the team's defense. The "bend, don't break" mantra is alive and well with this 2016 group, and although they surrender yardage, they are stingy when it counts. They played masterfully on 3rd downs, holding Cincinnati to just 4 out of 16 third down conversions, and were able to create a big turnover when the team needed it late in the 4th quarter.
