Look Back: Polamalu’s TD Flight Helps Steelers To Huge 2010 Win Over Bengals

The date was December 12th 2010, and the Steelers were set for a battle with the Bengals, sitting at 9-3 and looking to lock up the AFC North in a season they eventually played in the Super Bowl.

The matchup was the last with now Cardinals QB Carson Palmer, and the Steelers beat up Palmer and Cincy, easily going on for a 23-7 win after a slow start.

Below is a portion of the game story from Steelers Gab that afternoon, describing just how the Steelers made it to 10-3.

On a day when things didn’t start very good for the 9-3 Steelers, they could not have ended any better.

The black and gold completed a sweep of the very bad Bengals Sunday, winning on the strength of two defensive touchdowns in a 23-7 victory. They trailed 7-0 just over 5 minutes into the game, but dominated from there, as they at one point in the middle of the game the Bengals had six drives that resulted in zero yards on 10 plays.

The Steelers got two interception returns for touchdowns, one from Troy Polamalu that tied the game at seven, and another from LaMarr Woodley that more than sealed the deal in the fourth quarter to make it 20-7 with 12:21 left.
