The Pittsburgh Steelers had a five game unbeaten streak (4-0-1) snapped last week in a 41-37 loss at the Chargers. It wasn’t a bad performance on the road by the Pittsburgh offense, but their defense gave up 533 total yards to Los Angeles.
Cincinnati is a game back from Baltimore in the AFC North, but they haven’t done themselves any favors in losing two of the last three – one of those a 34-31 defeat to the hapless Jets (2-8). The Bengals will try to get back on track Sunday even though they are just 2-2 at home this year.
It’s been a rough past two games for the Steelers, who blew multiple chances to get an outright win over the Lions and had to settle for a 16-16 tie. Pittsburgh was missing Ben Roethlisberger in that game, and Mason Rudolph was30/50 for 242 yards with 1TD and 1 INT.
Roethlisberger was back last week, and the Pittsburgh offense looked much better as he went 28/44 for 273 yards and 3 TD with 0 INT. RB Najee Harris ran for his 5th TD in the last 7 games and the Steelers have some balance as they try to make up a 1.5 game deficit in the division.
The Steelers still have two games left with the AFC North leading Ravens, but they better shore up their defense ASAP if they want to contend for the postseason. LAC’s Justin Herbert went 30/41 for 382 yards and 3 TDs last week and now Cincinnati’s Joe Burrow gets his crack at this Pittsburgh secondary.
The Bengals looked good on both sides of the ball last week, beating Las Vegas 32-13 on the road as -2.5 favorites. Joe Burrow had just 148 yards passing (20 for 29) but didn’t need to be great with Joe Mixon running for 123 yards and 2 TDs.
The Steelers rank 26th in the NFL giving up 126.6 yards/game on the ground, and even Chargers QB Herbert got into the act last week with 90 yards on 9 carries. Burrow won’t run the ball like that, but the Chargers also hooked up for a 53-yard TD pass so Cincy WR Ja’Marr Chase could get back into his big play form from earlier this season.
The Bengals defense really stepped up last week in holding the Raiders to just 278 total yards, including only 206 through the air for the league’s #3 passing attack. Las Vegas has been on a skid though with three straight games scoring 16 points or less.
We will see if the Cincinnati defense is the one who shut down the Raiders last week, or the one that gave up 153 yards rushing to Cleveland and also 405 yards and 3TD passing to the Jets’ Mike White in his first NFL start.

Pittsburgh lost this matchup 24-10 earlier in the season, but this feels like a spot where the Steelers even up the series. Roethlisberger looked good last week vs. the Chargers, and this is still a Bengals defense that got shredded by the Jets.
Burrow has had a couple down weeks, it looks like a great spot for the Pittsburgh defense to step up.
