75: The Steelers have 75 yards rushing through their first two games, which is 31st in the NFL.

 

4: Number of passes Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed beyond 15 yards.

 

1: Roethlisberger was 1/9 passing on the 11 plays in which the Bengals blitzed him.

 

11: Of the 40 times Ben dropped back to pass last night, Ben was either pressured or sacked 11 times.

 

2: No. of red zone turnovers the Steelers had (1 in each half)

 

0: The number of times the Steelers scored in the second-half. They hadn’t been shut-out in the second-half of a game since Week 12 of last season at Cleveland in a game in which Roethlisberger didn’t play. You have to go back to Week 6 of the 2011 season against the Jacksonville Jaguars to find a game that Roethlisberger didn’t lead the Steelers to a score in the second-half.
