"Only thing is frustrating is that we lost to Pittsburgh," Dunlap said. "They didn't beat us, in my opinion."
Still, the Bengals had every chance to snap the losing streak Sunday after taking a 21-20 lead with 1:21 remaining in the game.
Fitzpatrick also helped the Steelers keep the drive alive with a defensive holding penalty on a third-and-10 play. Roethlisberger would throw the game-winning touchdown pass two plays later.
"Sucks. Sucks," Kirkpatrick said. "I can imagine how we feel. Imagine how the fans feel. It sucks."
"We did enough to win the football game and we didn't finish," Dunlap said. "We've got to figure out why, address it, take that with us, let this game go and move on to K.C."
