Pittsburgh stumbles to 0-2 start

By Associated Press

CINCINNATI (AP) — The Steelers haven’t opened a season so badly in 11 years.
Rookie running back Giovani Bernard scored his first two NFL touchdowns, and Pittsburgh’s offense had trouble getting first downs as the Cincinnati Bengals pulled away to a 20-10 victory on Monday night.
For the first time since 2002, the Steelers are off to an 0-2 start.
“We have work to do,” coach Mike Tomlin said. “We aren’t going to hide from that fact. We are going to embrace it and accept it, and understand that there is some misery that comes from the position we are in right now.”
There’s plenty of misery to embrace.
The Bengals (1-1) piled up 407 yards, holding the ball for more than 35 minutes. On offense, the Steelers had another game full of self-destruction, turning the ball over twice in scoring range.
Pittsburgh failed to get a first down on seven of its 12 possessions, giving the defense little time to catch its breath.
“There’s not a lot of positives going on right now,” said Ben Roethlisberger, who was 20 of 37 for 251 yards with one touchdown and an interception. “We can’t start doubting each other. Right now, there’s a general feeling of being upset.”
