The Bengals defensive line didn’t do much to get to Ben Roethlisberger that was for sure. They did get into the back field on a number of occasions but Ben stayed clean. After the Monday night game against Denver, they had us all excited to watch them get to Big Ben but it didn’t happen. Carlos Dunlap had the better game with two tackles, including one for a loss and a deflected pass to force a third and long late in the game. They will need to get to Andrew Luck next week in order to shut down the Colts passing game.
