This has not been the way they would have drawn it up but Pittsburgh has a chance after 10 games. They need a win here though.
The Bengals are the only winless team in the NFL. I didn’t see that coming, nor do I see a win this weekend, or perhaps the rest of the way.
Pittsburgh is looking to get back to winning after seeing their 4 game winning streak end in Cleveland. This could be a lookahead spot though with the Browns coming to Pittsburgh next week.
These Steelers are not strong enough to look past anyone really.
Mason Rudolph was terrible against the Browns in the loss. He threw four interceptions which matched the number he had thrown all season to that point. If he plays more sharply against Cincinnati this should be a solid win.
Pittsburgh needs to do a better job running the ball too. Moving from Le’veon Bell is just fine but they have not had much pop in the running game this season, just 80ypg and James Conner is day to day
Also day to day right now is leading receiver Juju Smith-Schuster. He has not come close to the productivity of last season’s breakout.
If the offense is pedestrian that will leave it to the defense that is in the top half of the league. That group might have to create some plays to get the victory.
The fact that Cincinnati is staring at a potential winless season is not something I saw coming. They do have four of their last 6 at home and a cushion for the worst record in the league. A win wouldn’t hurt them.
Rookie QB Ryan Finley now has two games under his belt. I am not expecting much but it is disconcerting that the second, against a light Oakland defense, was worse than the first.
Running back Joe Mixon has talent but has been lost in this terrible season. Only once has he had 20+ carries in a game. A lot of that is situational but at the same time you have to give the ball to your best players. It is just good strategy.
The Bengals’ defense has been just as bad as the offense. They are last in the league in yards allowed and just a little better on points.
With Finley at the helm I just don’t see how this team wins. I know they want to see what they have but he is not going to be able to help them win right now.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Steelers -6.5
Fading the Bengals is hardly rocket science. I just don’t see how they score more than 10 points against a competent Pittsburgh defense.
NFL Free Week 12 Score Prediction: Pittsburgh 24 – Cincinnati 10
With the defense playing well the offense can take its time. Eventually, they hit paydirt a few times to make put this one out of reach. Wouldn’t surprise if it is 14-7 entering the fourth quarter.
