“In the history of the Bengals – Steelers rivalry, which was your favorite and most memorable win?

Sean McMahon

My favorite win was in 2005, the 38-31 shootout where the Bengals beat the Steelers and ultimately showed they were going to be a true playoff team. Living in Pittsburgh, I have always been picked on for liking the Bengals while growing up.

In 2005, I actually had a bet with one of my favorite teachers about the Bengals reaching the playoffs. If they made the playoffs, I didn’t have to do homework for a whole month and get 100’s on everything. But if the Bengals didn’t make it, then she was allowed to shave my head completely bald. This game had everything you would want.

Both offenses and defenses giving opportunities for their teams to win. It was the first time I was honestly very proud to be a Bengal fan in Pittsburgh.
