Bengals, Steelers getting testy late in Cincinnati

US PRESSWIRE

The Bengals are going to get their first win of the season, and the rival Steelers are going to drop to 0-2. That's prompted some late frustration in Cincinnati.

This qualifies as a football fight these days -- it's more substantial than your typical baseball contretemps, but it's not exactly Mayweather-Canelo. Veteran tackle Andrew Whitworth, a noted hothead, got a little aggressive finishing his block on Troy Polamalu and pile of pushing and shoving ensued after the whistle.

It ended with Marvin Lewis getting a free piggyback ride from Polamalu:

Flags were thrown, and LaMarr Woodley was the only one dinged with a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty for the late shove on Whitworth. The Bengals tackle was taken out of the game shortly thereafter to avoid any further drama, but he ripped off his helmet and decided to work the oddly-dressed locals up into the lather one last time.
