If George Iloka was trying to get style points when he tried to tackle Antonio Brown on the last touchdown of the game, he failed with flare. They couldn’t contain a passing offense that walked all over them on many occasions. George did have one bright spot when he disrupted a play in the backfield and they got Bell for a loss as well as breaking up a screen play in the backfield after the Steelers scored on a similar play early on. Reggie Nelson on the other hand laid a hit that Steelers fans will remember, especially if Le’Veon Bell is out for any extended time. He also had an interception against Ben on a poorly chosen throw over the middle. Overall, they didn’t contain the passing game on many occasions and that come back to hurt the Bengals more than anything.
