What now? Steelers scrambling for answers after 1-2 start

PITTSBURGH (AP) The situation called for a gamble. Something risky. Something - anything really - to awaken the Pittsburgh offense and fend off the cascade of boos that followed every futile possession.

Instead, Ben Roethlisberger took the snap, turned immediately to his right, flipped the ball to running back Najee Harris and hoped for the best.

Harris needed 10 yards to extend the drive and any chance of a late comeback against Cincinnati on Sunday. The first-round draft pick didn't even get 1 yard. Hard to blame him. The moment he hauled in the 13th of his 14 receptions he was immediately swallowed up by a host of white-clad Bengals defenders.
