The Cincinnati Bengals fell to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night football last night, 30-20. The Steelers dominated the first half, scoring 24 unanswered to start the game behind a touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger and a punt return for a touchdown by Antonio Brown. Pittsburgh added to the lead to make it 30-7 on a third Shaun Suisham field goal in the third. The Bengals fought back with a pair of Andy Dalton touchdown tosses in the fourth, but the comeback was too little too late. The Bengals return home next Sunday to battle the Minnesota Vikings. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pre game at 11:30 and the kick at 1.
The Cleveland Browns were topped by the Chicago Bears yesterday, 38-31. The Browns controlled most of the first half, but a late touchdown by Chicago sent the game into the half tied at ten. After the Bears began the half with a touchdown on an interception return, the Browns tied it on a touchdown run from Edwin Baker and finished the quarter with a TJ Ward 51-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown to take the lead. But the fourth was controlled by Chicago with 21 unanswered points to pull ahead. The Browns will now visit the New York Jets on Sunday at 1.

The Cleveland Indians are close to signing right-handed reliever and closer John Axford. Axford was non-tendered by the St. Louis Cardinals after pitching during St. Louis’ playoff run.

Axford posted a 4.02 ERA with 65 strikeouts last season, but did have a career-high six blown saves before being traded.
