In a fortunate turn of events, Cincinnati seized the opportunity when Steelers linebacker Mykal Walker deflected a pass, sending the ball into the waiting hands of wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase, who managed to gain 31 yards before reaching the Pittsburgh 16.
This set the stage for an 11-yard touchdown connection between Browning and tight end Drew Sample, propelling the Bengals to an early 7-3 lead in the second quarter.
Despite a strong start, the Bengals faced a setback in the third quarter, as Browning’s pass to Chase was intercepted by Trenton Thompson, leading to the Steelers taking the lead with a 10-7 score in the third quarter.
Following a challenging play that sidelined Pickens temporarily in the fourth quarter, the Steelers managed to extend their lead to 13-7 with a Boswell field goal after a successful 43-yard reception by Pickens.
With the clock winding down and the Steelers firmly in the lead, the Bengals made a valiant effort, but were ultimately unable to overcome the Steelers’ defense, resulting in a 16-10 defeat for the Bengals.
Despite the Bengals’ efforts, Pickett’s impressive performance, and a hard-fought battle, the Steelers emerged victorious with a season-high 278 passing yards by Pickett, solidifying a significant AFC North victory on the road.
“I thought we did a good job of coming together and staying together in a time of adversity and getting a win on the road, a big AFC North victory,” said Pickett. “It feels good.”
