AFC North action takes place Sunday afternoon as the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals get set to battle it out.
Currently, the Bengals sit 6-0 and atop the AFC North standings.
Pittsburgh has weathered the storm a bit without Ben Roethlisberger and should see him suit up here on Sunday.
The Bengals come in as one of the NFLs undefeateds as they just continue to find ways to win.
Cincinnati got to prepare for their date with Ben Roethlisberger with a bye week last week, after knocking off the Bills in a route.
Cincinnati put up 34 points against a tough Buffalo defense thanks to QB Andy Dalton and his continued stellar play.
Dalton brings in a completion percentage of 67.4 and has 1761 yards to go along with 14 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. He leads an offense that is averaging 30.3 points per game and 410.3 yards per game.
Dalton’s success also comes from WR AJ Green. On the season, Green is averaging nearly 9 receptions per game to go along with 111.2 yards. Green had a monumental 224 yard receiving day against these Steelers last year.
The Steelers season could have went into shambles following the injury to Ben Roethlisberger. However, with a decent showing from Mike Vick and Landry Jones stepping up, the Steelers remain right in the thick of the AFC North race.
Sitting at 4-3 after their loss to Kansas City last week, the Steelers now really must win this one against the Bengals if they hope to put some pressure on them. Last week, Landry Jones just couldn’t get anything going offensively for Pittsburgh.
Jones finished with a completion rate of just 55% and threw two crucial interceptions.
RB Le’Veon Bell continued to carry his load as he finished with 137 yards from scrimmage. On the season, Bell has 511 yards and 3 touchdowns.
With Ben Rothlisberger returning, Antonio Brown must be ecstatic. Brown really didn’t mix with Vick or Jones and his numbers dropped heavily game by game. Last season against the Bengals, Brown finished with 16 receptions for 245 yards combined in both meetings.
