Yeah, I was surprised to see them kneel on 4th down thereby turning the ball over to Cincy with time on the clock.

Was the correct move. If you run a play or if you kick the FG there's a chance for a block/return. Give it back to them down two scores with no TOs and 40 seconds on their 25 yard line. Was kind of surprised the Bengals just said "fuck it" and took a knee themselve. I understand why just don't usually see teams throw in the towel

this is my take also. I told my wife at 2:40 remaining "actually we could really just take knees from here." And then we did.

That last 2:30ish was vintage Bengals cheap shot time. I was fine with handling it the way they did.

I wasn't really troubled by it....just never see V-formation utilized unless the clock will exhausted. The funny thing was that the players assumed the game was over when Steelers had their final knee and came running onto the field.

Might have been much more predictable and disappointing ending if Golden doesn't throw a bomb to Heyward-Bey for 44 yards. That was refreshing. For once there's some refreshment in today's Steelers game. Well, aside from them winning. I think Golden deserves a game ball for today's effort.

I would of kicked the FG, to set the Heinz Field record, and make it a 3 score game at 32-14.
