The Bengals and Steelers kickoff at 1 p.m. Eastern Sunday, in a meeting of two of the AFC North’s best.
Cincinnati has started 6-0, but haven’t exactly made it look easy. The Bengals have trailed late multiple times this season, but Andy Dalton has led his team to victory each week.
The key to the Bengals success this season has been balance. Not only is AJ Green healthy on the outside, a healthy Tyler Eifert has changed the middle of the field for the Bengals offense. With the two-headed rushing attack of Hill and Bernard, it’s no surprise the Bengals average over 30 points per game.
If all of these weapons sound good, they still might not be as potent as the Steelers offense. Roethlisberger is back, and that could spell trouble for Cincinnati. Le’Veon Bell torched them for 235 total yards and three scores last season, and Antonio Brown has returned three punts for TDs against the Bengals in his career.
