With just over two minutes left in the first quarter, the Cincinnati Bengals took a 7-0 lead after a Leon Hall pick six and an extra point. After stopping the Bengals, Cincinnati punted and pinned the Steelers back inside their own 10-yard line. After a short pass and unsuccessful run attempt, Roethlisberger dropped back to pass, aiming for tight end Heath Miller and threw the ball.
Hall stepped in front of Miller in the last second, picking off Roethlisberger's pass, and ran it back into the end zone to score the first points of the game. The Bengals now have a one-touchdown lead in the two teams' most important game of the season. If the Bengals win, the eliminate the Steelers and lock up a post season berth. If the Steelers win, the Bengals aren't necessarily eliminated, but they would need a ton of help to get in.
Roethlisberger has completed one of three passes for four yards and has thrown one interception in the Week 16 game.
