The two sides have reached a century of encounters.

The Pittsburgh Steelers ended their three-match losing streak with a 27-3 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in the 100th meeting between the sides.

It was the Pennsylvanians' eighth-consecutive victory over the visitors, but it was more important to the six-time NFL champions that they were able to record a single win after a poor opening to the NFL season.

Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph only threw two passes more than a yard beyond the line of scrimmage in his side's loss to the San Francisco 49ers the previous week.

It made sense, then, that the second-year signal-caller made use of running backs James Conner and Jaylen Samuels to beat a struggling Cincinnati offensive line.

The Bengals defence did not fare much better, with Pittsburgh managing to sack Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton on the way to victory.
