Steelers News: Pittsburgh shows they're not afraid of the big moment in Bengals win

The Pittsburgh Steelers were aggressive in every facet of the game on Sunday, outclassing the AFC North-leading Cincinnati Bengals in a 42-21 beatdown.

“We just were not going to live in our fears today,” head coach Mike Tomlin said, via Scott Brown of “We needed to be aggressive and create some splash. It worked out for us.”

While WR Antonio Brown (with yet another 100-yard receiving game) and RB Le'Veon Bell (26 carries, 185 yards, 2 TDs) continued their impressive 2014 campaigns with elite performances on Sunday, Tomlin knows that the team's will to perform when the lights shine brightest goes deeper than that.

“They get the headlines and do a lot for us,” Tomlin said of Brown and Bell, “but the other guys step up and answer the bell when their number is called. That creates a level playing field for Brown and Bell to both continue doing what they need to do.”
