Bengals 28, Steelers 20

Today the Steelers fell to 1-2, losing to the undefeated Cincinnati Begals 28-20. Once again, QB Ben Roethlisberger did not look like, well, Ben Roethlisberger. For the first time in his career, Roethlisberger threw an interception inside the red zone; it came at the beginning of the second quarter, when the Steelers were threatening to take a commanding 14-0 lead.

But the most glaring gaffe came courtesy of CB Ricardo Colclough, who fumbled a fourth-quarter punt that Tony Stewart recovered at the Steelers' 9 yard line. One play later the Bengals scored a touchdown and took a 21-17 lead.

As any Steelers fan knows, Colclough has been a disaster waiting to happen, muffing several punts during the team's first two games. I'm surprised that Bill Cowher continued to allow Colclough to return punts; rookie WR Santonio Holmes may not be an effective returner, but he has shown the ability to reliably catch the ball.
