The play took imagination and the Steelers always seem to have it. The perfect trick play at the perfect time. Execution. Players knowing their role. Don't the Bengals have imagination in their play calling? Don't they have talent (everybody says they do)? I'm tired of Cincy being the D-student whenever they play Pittsburgh. It just didn't make sense with the turnover of Pittsburgh O-coordinators on how they can continue to be so successful and imaginative. Yes, the Steelers have lots of talent too! So do the Bengals. The Steelers have something else and I think I know the ultimate answer to my question. In reference to James Conner, somebody said he runs like he's seen death! That probably is the difference in a nutshell.
