The Steelers travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals at 1:00 pm on Sunday. These two teams has always been a huge rivalry but has taken a nasty turn in the last few years.
There always seems to be a pregame fight, a couple personal foul penalties(or a lot), and one or two ejections.
Vontaze Burfict was suspended for the first game this season, so it will be interesting to see how he responds to this game, and how the Steelers respond to him.
For those who don’t remember he gave Antonio Brown a concussion in last years game, and was suspended for the start of this year.
This game will probably come down to which teams won’t let the antics get to them and just go out and play football.
The Steelers have had an up and down season.
They started off the season good, lost four in a row, and now have won four straight. They have looked dominate in those games, and are one of the hottest teams in the NFL right now.
One of the reasons they lost those four in a row was injuries. Big Ben was out a few games, and the Steelers are not a very good team without him.
Big Ben has thrown for 3245 yards and and 25 touchdowns. His favorite target is Antonio Brown. On the season Brown has 1130 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns.
On the defensive end this isn’t the same Steelers team that didn’t give up any points in the early 2000’s.
But this defense is still good. On the season they only give up 19.7 points per game and 342.7 yards per game.
In this game the Steelers need to not let the Bengals antics try to get in their head. They are the better team and just need to play their game on the field.
The Bengals have had a disappointing season so far and if they were able to pull out a win against the Steelers, that would go a long way to saving Marvin Lewis’s job.
He is on the chopping block right now, and really needs to finish the season strong to be able to come back next year.
The Bengals statistically aren’t bad. They just lost a lot of close games in the middle of the season. It started with a tie in London, and all went down hill from there.
The Bengals however are coming off of back to back wins, so should have momentum in this game. AJ Green will miss this game with a Hamstring injury and that has really hurt them.
Andy Dalton doesn’t have his deep threat and it will allow the Steelers to put more players in the box.
The Bengals need to get the home crowd behind them early by getting off to a fast start.

The ground game is going to be a huge part of the game on Sunday, and I expect a slow paced game. If you like defense this will be the game for you
NFL Free Score Prediction: Pittsburgh 17 – Cincinnati 13
I think Big Ben will be too much in the end, and the Steelers will win, but it will be close.
