Cincinnati Bengals vs. Pittsburgh Steelers – Preview And Predictions

Two huge AFC North rivals battled in the Playoffs last season. Very strange and low scoring game ended with Bengals’ mistake and 15-yard penalty that cost them their season. It’s only a Week 2, but this matchup is highly important. The winner of this game will be in a drivers’ seat in this division.

Bengals have earned themselves a huge road victory in Week 1 against the Jets and are looking to do the same thing this week. AJ Green was just as good as anybody that stepped on the field on a Sunday, and he needs to have a big game again.

Steelers’ offense is just on another level, and every defense should worry about Big Ben and company. But, this week, they will be going up against a better defense than what Washington showed. Antonio Brown will likely put up his numbers, but can the Bengals’ shut down the rest of the team.

Both Quarterbacks should be able to have a good day, finishing the game with nice yardage and two or even three Touchdown passes. Their star wideouts should also have a good day, but the difference is the Running Back position. DeAngelo Williams is on a roll, and they will push him on offense. Bengals don’t have a player that will match Williams on the ground so their defensive line will have to work together and hard to stop him.

It’s going to be an intense game, a great one to watch and you just can’t afford to miss it. Cincinnati is fully capable of winning this game in Burgh, but with few players still missing, they should be slight underdogs. That’s why we can see the Steelers winning this game 23:20. But it can really go either way in this one.
