The Cincinnati Bengals have bounced back from an ugly home loss to the Cleveland Browns by scoring 73 points over the past two games against the Las Vegas Raiders and Pittsburgh Steelers.

Their third consecutive win against the Steelers was a 41-10 rout of Pittsburgh highlighted by Joe Mixon establishing a new personal record with 165 rushing yards in a game, ex-Steeler Mike Hilton's pick-6 of Ben Roethlisberger, Tee Higgins' outstanding touchdown grab in the second quarter and Joe Burrow's touchdown run to finish Cincinnati's opening drive.

The Bengals improved to 7-4 with the win - referred to by The Enquirer's Paul Daugherty as an exorcism - and dropped the Steelers to 5-5-1. Cincinnati is 3-1 this seas in AFC North games.
