The Pittsburgh Steelers ended their three-match losing streak with a 27-3 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in the 100th meeting between the sides.

Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph only threw two passes more than a yard beyond the line of scrimmage in his side’s loss to the San Francisco 49ers the previous week.
It made sense, then, that the second-year signal-caller made use of running backs James Conner and Jaylen Samuels to beat a struggling Cincinnati offensive line.
