The Cincinnati Bengals offensive line entered the 2013 season as one of the best units in the entire NFL, and through two weeks, they’ve done nothing to dispute that notion.
Against what’s still a very respectable Pittsburgh defense, the Bengals offensive line held it’s own against Dick LeBeu’s best blitz schemes. Not only did the not allow a sack, but rarely even allowed Dalton to get knocked down.
They also did yeoman’s work in maintaining their blocks and establishing a solid ground game, a rare happening against the Steelers.
If you recall, the Bengals rushed for a combined 94 yards in two games vs the Steelers last year.
Monday night, BenJarvus Green-Ellis rushed 22 times for 75 yards Giovani Bernard rushed eight times for 38 yards and a touchdown as the Bengals finished with 127 yards on the ground.
