Ben Roethlisberger was not at his best today, but he did have a hand in all three Steelers touchdowns.  His first of the day came in the first quarter on a twenty yard pass to Xavier Grimble.  The Bengals then settled for a twenty-five yard field goal by Mike Nugent prior to the quarter ending.  The second quarter would see each team settle for field goals.  Chris Boswell would boot a forty-nine yard kick, and Nugent would ...
