Steelers at Bengals (Week 8) – Last Week

Bubby Brister and the Pittsburgh Steelers made short work of the Bengals’ defense to take an early 14-3 lead but Boomer Esiason was finally able to answer in the 2nd Quarter to bring the score to 10-14 – a score which would remain until Halftime.

A defensive struggle dominated the 2nd Half but the Bengals were finally able to take a 17-14 lead on a touchdown pass from Boomer Esiason to Tim McGee. However, on the ensuing drive, the Steelers were able to march the length of the field thanks to the combination of Bubby Brister and Merril Hoge to tie the game at 17-all with one minute to play.

In Overtime, and defensive stand, impressive drive, and field goal gave the Bengals the late 20-17 victory despite the Steelers’ defense holding the Bengals to just 191 total yards.

Bengals at Bills (Week 9)

Boomer Esiasion led the Bengals on the first scoring drive of the game late in the 2nd Quarter but the combination of Jim Kelly, Andre Reed, and Thurman Thomas was too much for the Bengals’ defense to handle as the Bills answered the score before Halftime and scored again early in the 2nd Half on their first possession.

For the Bengals, James Brooks put the team on his back in the 2nd Half scoring on a monster run in the 3rd Quarter to tie the game at 14-all and scoring again from the goal line in the 4th Quarter to give the Bengals a 21-14 lead.

As expected, however, Kelly and the Bills would not be denied and after being on their own goal line for a 4th and 34, Thurman Thomas went for 65 yards on a delay draw to set up a 35 yard touchdown pass from Jim Kelly on the ensuing play to send the game in to Overtime.

The Bills would start with the ball in Overtime and the Kelly to Reed combination of quarterback to wide receiver was simply too much and the team from Buffalo would score a 24-21 Overtime win.
