The Pittsburgh Steelers are going through a rough stretch in their season. They’re 1-1-1 in their last three games which, while not bad on paper, included a brutal grind-it-out win against the Bears and a Mason Rudolph-led tie against the Lions. While Ben Roethlisberger had an excellent game against the Chargers in primetime last week, the reality is that it seems like a different facet of the Steelers struggles on any given week.
On the other side, the 6-4 Bengals had a get-right game against the Raiders last week in a 32-13 win. Ja’Marr Chase appears to be getting attention that he didn’t receive before from defenses, and it’s showing, but Joe Burrow is still distributing the ball well. He’ll have to continue to do so against a Steelers defense that is more than capable of getting to the quarterback.
The Bengals won in somewhat dominant fashion when these two teams faced each other back in September, a 24-10 victory that featured a pair of Chase touchdowns. While these two teams look very different since then, the Steelers will have to adjust without Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden for the second straight week. Justin Herbert and Keenan Allen had a field day against the Steelers last week, with 112 of Herbert’s 382 yards going to Allen.
The winner of this game will get a big leg up in an AFC North that has proven to be incredibly tight-knit all season. The Ravens are in some danger of pulling away in the division at 7-3, so this game will be huge for one of the teams in it to keep pace as the Browns and Ravens face off on “Sunday Night Football.”
