It’s hard enough to beat the Steelers; it’s even worse when you have to beat yourselves too.

For starters, the defense was doing so well until Bell’s reception in the final minute of the second quarter. They were able to stop the run for the most part, which forced the Steelers into second- and third-and-long situations.


However, mistakes on the opened up <a href="http://www.officialflyersshop.com/...ds-jersey-c-1_5.html">Wayne Simmonds Jersey</a> the game for the Steelers and cost the Bengals dearly. Silly mistakes <a href="http://www.authenticpatriotsstores.com/...s-jersey-c-1_55.html">Brandin Cooks Authentic Jersey</a> like forgetting to tackle Bell let the Steelers back into the game. Going into next week, the Bengals need to shore up the defense and keep from making those careless mistakes.


The second thing the Bengals need to do is stop committing so many penalties. How <a href="http://www.nemiza.com/emmitt-smith-jersey-c-1_16.html">http://www.nemiza.com/...-1_16.html</a> could a team possibly win when they lose 173 yards due to flags? Even if you want to <a href="http://www.cqzxyw.com/brandin-cooks-jersey-c-1_14.html">Brandin Cooks Jersey</a> go with the bad officiating argument, the Bengals probably could have still broken the franchise record for penalty yards without the help of the referees.


Who knows? <a href="http://www.billsonlineofficial.com/...y-jersey-c-1_26.html">http://www.billsonlineofficial.com/...-1_26.html</a> Maybe George Iloka’s unnecessary hit on Antonio Brown was the difference in the game. The Bengals started their next drive with bad field position because of it and ended up punting when they needed to score.
