PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers are back in their usual spot atop the AFC North thanks in large part to a defense that's back to its old ways.
The Steeler have struggled creating turnovers this season. But they came up with two pivotal interceptions in a 24-17 win over Cincinnati on Sunday.
Cornerback William Gay tipped Andy Dalton's pass to Lawrence Timmons for one interception. Gay later picked off Dalton with about 3 minutes to play to seal it.
Gay was burned for a late touchdown in a loss to Baltimore last week. He didn't view Sunday's game as redemption. He says he was just doing his job.
The victory propelled the Steelers back in front of the AFC North at 7-3, a half-game ahead of Baltimore and Cincinnati.
