CINCINNATI- Running back Giovani Bernard scored his first two NFL touchdowns, one of them on a short pass that he turned into a 27-yard score, and the Cincinnati Bengals beat Pittsburgh 20-10 on Monday night, extending the Steelers' early-season misery.

The second-round draft pick had a 7-yard touchdown run in the first half before turning a short pass from Andy Dalton into a third-quarter score - a preview of what the Bengals (1-1) could become with a pass-catching threat out of the backfield.

First-round pick Tyler Eifert also had a big play, making a 61-yard catch that set up Bernard's touchdown run.The Steelers fell to 0-2 for the first time since 2002.

An injury-depleted offense couldn't put drives together consistently, allowing the Bengals to wear down their defense.
