Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - Chris Rainey scored the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter, and the Pittsburgh Steelers held on to defeat the Cincinnati Bengals, 24-17, in an AFC North clash Sunday night.
Pittsburgh (3-3) trailed 14-3 early on, but held Cincy to two first downs in the second half and got just enough offense to rebound from a loss for the third time this season.
Ben Roethlisberger improved to 8-1 in his career at Cincinnati by throwing for 278 yards with an interception and a touchdown pass to Heath Miller.
Jonathan Dwyer rushed for 122 yards on 17 carries and helped the Steelers run out the clock on the Bengals, who held the ball for just 22 1/2 minutes.
Andy Dalton, one week after tossing for a career-high 381 yards in a loss to Cleveland, wound up with 105 in Cincinnati's third straight loss. The second- year starter was intercepted once and connected with A.J. Green for a score.Game Notes
