Bengals vs Steelers Preview

The Pittsburgh Steelers are 8-0 for the first time in franchise history and have a chance to take a commanding lead in the AFC North if they can take out an upstart Cincinnati Bengals squad on Sunday.

It appeared that the Steelers would be without veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for the matchup, but he was cleared on Saturday to face the Bengals.

“My body enjoyed the week off,” Roethlisberger said. “My mind, from teaching pre-K, did not enjoy the week off. It was fun to be home with them, but I definitely miss the guys.”

Roethlisberger was deemed to be high risk close contact with tight end Vance McDonald, who tested positive for the virus early in the week.

“My wife, we slept in opposite rooms. Things like that. My wife said, I don’t care if we get it, but we don’t want our kids to get it,” he said. “You always care more about your kids than you care about yourself or anyone. We’ve been as safe as we can possibly be at home, I think.”

The Steelers have been winning, but would like to get their run game on track. Conner hasn’t cracked the 100 yards the last three weeks and notched just 22 yards against the Cowboys last week in a 24-19 win that was a little too close for comfort.

“Just trying to take as much as we can from the film and apply it to the practice field,” Steelers defensive end TJ Watt. “I think it’s very important you don’t go over these victory Mondays and treat it like we’re not going to look at the game, we’re going to think about the Bengals this week. We made sure we looked at the Cowboys film to break it down and talk it through and make sure all of our ducks are in a row. Then we started preparing for the Bengals this week and feel confident with the plan we came up with and it’s been a great week for us.”

The Begnals are coming off a bye week, but pulled off their most impressive victory in recent memory against the Titans last time out, 31-20.

No. 1 overall pick Joe Burrow has made the case for Rookie of the Year, passing for 2,272 yards and 11 touchdowns this season. However, Burrow will have his hands full against the Steelers tough defense.

“I think at the end of the day they’re a really good defense and we’ve played a couple of those: Indy, Philly had a great front, one of the best fronts in the NFL, and certainly Baltimore is one of the better defenses we faced,” Bengals head coach Zak Taylor said. “We played some really good defenses so our guys are ready to handle anything. We know Pittsburgh is a good team and we’ve got a lot of respect for them, but our guys are ready to go.”

The Steelers are a 7-point favorite for the matchup.
