Bengals 16 – Steelers 10
Ben Roethlisberger threw three interceptions, including picks on consecutives passes in the fourth quarter as the Bengals (7-0) rallied to a 16-10 win over the Steelers (4-4).
Roethlisberger was 28-45 for 262 yards with 1 TD and 3 INT’s in the loss. 75 of Roethlisberger’s 262 passing yards came on the final drive of the game as Roethlisberger drove the Steelers to the Bengals 16 yard line in the waning seconds but threw incomplete to Antonio Brown in the end zone on the final play of the game.

Pirates’ third base coach Rick Sofield had been reported earlier today as the front runner to become the next manager of the San Diego Padres, according to Scott Miller of Bleacher Report.
Sofield, though, has been by-passed for the job and the Padres are hiring Andy Green, per Miller.
