Ben Roethlisberger saw the defensive alignment and knew immediately that the Pittsburgh Steelers had a chance for a winning touchdown. All he had to do was get the ball to Antonio Brown right away.Brown took a few strides http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-kevin-huber-jersey , caught the pass and ran behind Justin Hunter's block for a 31-yard touchdown with 10 seconds left Sunday and yet another improbable — and entirely predictable — victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. The Steelers' 28-21 win made it eight straight and counting over their AFC North rival."We've been in that situation a lot, and I knew we were going to do it," Brown said.They always do.James Conner ran for 111 yards and a pair of touchdowns on the eve of Le'Veon Bell's possible return to help the Steelers (3-2-1) get ahead, but they had to pull off their third last-minute rally at Paul Brown Stadium to extend the streak.Joe Mixon's 4-yard touchdown run with 1:18 got the Bengals (4-2) thinking they might finally have their breakthrough. Roethlisberger and the Steelers stunned them again.Big Ben came to the line on the decisive play and saw that the Bengals were set for an all-out blitz with no safeties to guard against a big play. He immediately thought touchdown."When you see that look, it's how fast can I get him the ball," said Roethlisberger, who is 14-2 in his career at Paul Brown Stadium.Brown caught the ball in stride, cut Hunter's block and outran the secondary for the winning score, leaving thousands of Steelers fans twirling their towels in the stands while stunned Bengals fans stood and watched a familiar ending.The Bengals are 2-16 against the Steelers at Paul Brown Stadium during coach Marvin Lewis' 16 seasons, including a pair of playoff losses."Imagine how we feel," Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said. "I imagine how the fans feel."These Ohio River rivalry games are usually nasty http://www.thebengalslockerroom.com/authentic-randy-bullock-jersey , and this one had its moments. After Andy Dalton's final pass fell complete, several players got into a scuffle in front of the Cincinnati sideline.After a sloppy September, the Steelers have won two in a row and found their stride behind Conner , who became the featured back when Bell decided to hold out. Conner has run for more than 100 yards in each of the last two games, and his pair of 1-yard touchdown runs Sunday put him in the company of a pair of Steelers Hall of Famers.Conner has seven rushing touchdowns in six games, joining Franco Harris (1976) and Jerome Bettis (2004) as the only Steelers with that accomplishment."James was a bowling ball today," said Roethlisberger, who joked that it was probably the running back's final game amid reports that Bell would return.JuJu Smith-Schuster had a spectacular catch — leaping over cornerback Darqueze Dennard and taking the ball way — that set up Conner's second touchdown.Bengals receiver Tyler Boyd had a solid game against his hometown team, catching touchdowns of 2 and 14 yards .Cincinnati linebacker Vontaze Burfict was in the middle of several dustups. He had words with Roethlisberger only 3 minutes into the game. He stepped over Conner on the running back's first touchdown, prompting a teammate to push him away before the situation could escalate.Burfict also hit Brown in the head — he wasn't penalized — after a catch, causing the receiver to leave for a couple of plays. In 2015 Womens Nick Vigil Jersey , Burfict's hit to Brown's head helped the Steelers rally for an 18-16 playoff win. On Sunday, Burfict yelled at a reporter in the locker room after the game for asking a teammate about the latest hit on Brown's head."A nasty hit," Brown said.SHAZIER'S RETURNSteelers linebacker Ryan Shazier returned to the stadium where he suffered a spinal injury last December. He's been on the sideline for games this season. His return to Paul Brown Stadium was emotional for all the Steelers."He's inspired us," coach Mike Tomlin said. "Hopefully he's inspired many outside of us."DALTON MOVES UPDalton finished 26 of 42 for 229 yards, moving ahead of Boomer Esiason for second on the Bengals' career passing list behind Ken Anderson. Dalton fell to 3-12 against the Steelers.INJURIESBengals: RB Giovani Bernard missed a second straight game with a knee injury. LB Nick Vigil left with an injured left knee in the first quarter. Dennard hurt his right shoulder on Smith-Schuster's catch and didn't return. S Shawn Williams left in the second half with a concussion.UP NEXTSteelers: Have their bye week.Bengals: Play Sunday night at Kansas City. The Bengals are 0-5 on Sunday night since 2011. CINCINNATI (AP) — A.J. Green had surgery on his injured toe. Tight end Tyler Eifert is recovering from a broken ankle. Andy Dalton is gone, too, sidelined by a torn thumb ligament in his passing hand.What's left of the Bengals‘ offense? Running back Joe Mixon, who's settling into the role Cincinnati envisioned for him during last year's draft.Mixon carried a career-high 26 times for 111 yards and had a team-high five catches during a 26-21 loss to the Chargers on Sunday, Cincinnati's fifth in a row. With Jeff Driskel starting for Dalton and Green gone, Mixon is getting a chance to show the versatility that led Cincinnati to draft him in the second round despite the public pushback.Mixon either ran the ball or was the intended receiver on 10 of the Bengals' first 13 plays in Los Angeles in a game plan built around the running back."Some guys have to step up to even another level than they're used to playing at," Mixon said Wednesday. "I'm going to embrace it."The Bengals (5-8) will make him the centerpiece again Sunday in their final home game against the Oakland Raiders (3-10) John Miller Jersey White , who are coming off a 24-21 win over Pittsburgh .Mixon has been one of the few bright spots in an offense that's unraveled as players got hurt, one of the few constants during a stretch of seven losses in the past eight games."He's a high-energy guy," Driskel said. "He's somebody that brings it day-in and day-out. He's definitely somebody who we can all lean on."The Bengals were castigated for making him the 48th overall pick last year. Mixon punched a woman in the face and was suspended for a season at Oklahoma, prompting other teams to pass on him early in the draft.Mixon played a limited role as a rookie, when he was slotted behind Jeremy Hill. Mixon had one 100-yard rushing game as Cincinnati finished 7-9.He ascended to the top spot this season, but missed two games because of knee surgery to remove torn cartilage. He ran for a career-high 123 yards against Tampa Bay and 111 against the Chargers.With a historically bad defense, the Bengals have had to play catch-up, limiting Mixon's chances to run. He's averaging 4.8 yards per carry, which ranks fourth in the AFC among backs with at least 100 carries.The biggest improvement in Mixon has been his discipline to follow the designed path of plays rather than improvising. He's running behind a better offensive line, and he's been more determined to take advantage of it."It's like a domino effect," he said.If he stays healthy Geno Atkins Jersey , Mixon will top 1,000 yards after running for only 625 — and a 3.5-yard average — last season. He's had five games with 100 yards rushing and receiving combined, the most since Hill did it five times in 2014. BenJarvus Green-Ellis had six such games in 2012.He'll get plenty of chances. Green had surgery on his injured toe Tuesday and won't return, leaving Mixon as their best option in December."We've got three more weeks," Mixon said.BURFICT STILL OUTLinebacker Vontaze Burfict remained in concussion protocol on Wednesday after missing the Chargers game. Defensive end Michael Johnson also is sidelined with a concussion. Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick was held out of practice with an ankle injury that sidelined him in Los Angeles. Left tackle Cordy Glenn had a limited practice Wednesday, an improvement after missing the past three games with a back injury.McRAE PRACTICINGCornerback Tony McRae was back at practice Wednesday on a limited basis. He suffered a concussion during a loss to Cleveland and was taken off the field on a back board as a precaution. He was in protocol the past two weeks.
