Steelers vs. Bengals score update: Pittsburgh and Cincinnati tied at 10 at halftime

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

Neither the Steelers or the Bengals could find much offense in the first half of Monday Night Football.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals are tied at 10 through the first half of their Week 2 Monday Night Football matchup.

Last week, every team from the AFC North lost. The Ravens beat the Browns 14-6 in an ugly game on Sunday, and this AFC North showdown has been just as ugly. Ben Roethlisberger struggled out of the gate before leading a touchdown drive late in the second half, while Andy Dalton was inaccurate and uncomfortable on his way to a 50-percent completion percentage.

The Bengals attempted 32 passes in the first half, despite finding a reasonable amount of success on the ground. BenJarvus Green-Ellis continues to get the bulk of the team's carries, even though Giovani Bernard found the end zone on one of his three first-half carries.

Niether team played its best football in the first half, and that had more to do with poor offensive execution than anything else.
