NFL Scores Week 10, Steelers Vs. Bengals: Pittsburgh Guts Out AFC North Victory, 24-17

CINCINNATI, OH - NOVEMBER 13: A.J. Green #18 of the Cincinnati Bengals makes a 36-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter over Ryan Clark #25 and Troy Polamalu #43 of the Pittsburgh Steelers at Paul Brown Stadium on November 13, 2011 in Cincinnati, Ohio. (Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)

A.J. Green's touchdown catch wasn't enough for the Bengals, who fell to the Steelers, 24-17, in Week 10.

The Steelers needed a win to avoid a big deficit in the AFC North. The Bengals wanted one to prove their legitimacy in the division. In Week 10, the old hands won out, as Pittsburgh got a much-needed 17-10 victory.

Ben Roethlisberger threw for 245 yards and a touchdown in the win, and Rashard Mendenhall had two touchdowns in the ground, but it was the Steelers' defense that helped the Steel City titans the most.

Pittsburgh held Cincinnati to 279 yards and forced two turnovers, and harassed rookie Andy Dalton into his least accurate day of the year, a 15-for-30 performance passing that included two touchdowns and two interceptions.

A.J. Green caught one pass, a 36-yard touchdown, before leaving with an injury.

The win moves Pittsburgh to 7-3 on the season, and drops the Bengals to 6-3.
