The defense cannot get out of the way

All night the Steelers took a step forward in defense only to take two steps back. Despite keeping Bengali quarterback Ryan Finley to just 89 yards, they allowed him to dash 47 yards and score a touchdown on the ground. The Steelers defense also failed to sell and only fired the third string quarterback twice.
The problems on the offensive continue

Thank goodness Alejandro Villanueva has no internet because he wouldn't like what he read about his play on Monday evening. Both Steelers tackles were beaten up in the pass guard and none of the five starters showed the physical condition to maintain any momentum against the Bengals front. Running Back Benny Snell had some nice runs, mostly done by himself, and too many games that the Steelers' offensive line literally just stood around and watched games fall apart.
Don't blame the coach for this
Joseph Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports
People like head coach Mike Tomlin and offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner take a lot of heat when this team rightly has problems. But on Monday evening the guilt rests firmly with the players on the field. The Steelers flipped the soccer ball three times and did not force sales. The game plan was solid on either side of the fall, but the execution fell flat at every turn.
