Kevin Huber did well to punt the ball but a returned punt for a touchdown wasn’t in the punt teams game plan. It drastically hurt the Bengals to put them down 7-0 after the defense played big in the first few series. Mike Nugent’s missed 50 yard field goal didn’t help either. It ended a 15 straight made streak and it kept the Bengals from getting to a point that would have tied the game with a touchdown instead of a two possession lead for the Steelers. They definitely took a step back this week as well.
