This is it. This is the THE statement game of all statement games. Beat the Steelers in THEIR house to earn a spot in the postseason. You want to be considered one of the best teams in the AFC, scratch that, the AFC NORTH you must win this game. Otherwise its another year of the same old Bengals. The Bengals backed in a year ago by losing their last game against Baltimore. There’s little hope of the Steelers losing next week against the Browns. This group of Bengals, like years past in 2005, 2009 need to win on Sunday and make the statement that the Bengals are in fact contenders in the AFC North, postseason and beyond.
In this week’s show:
Nice, ugly win vs Philly
Offensive line played like garbage

Andy Dalton needs to play much better than he has in the past few weeks if the Bengals are going to pull off a franchise rarity.
Dalton was indecisive and repeatedly missed throws during a 34-13 win in Philadelphia that was set up by the Eagles' fumbling. The Bengals (8-6) moved into playoff position with the win, and can clinch a spot by beating the Steelers (7-7) in Pittsburgh...
If it doesn't happen now, when? That is the simple question that the Bengals must address as they face Pittsburgh on Sunday. With a victory, the Bengals advance to the postseason in consecutive seasons for the first time in 30 years. They also beat one of their division rivals to show they have taken the next step. In order to do that though, quarterback Andy Dalton is going...

Not practicing on Wednesday was defensive end Carlos Dunlap (illness), who sat out sick. Dunlap has 33 combined tackles on the season with 4.5 sacks and 4 forced fumbles to his credit. He is expected to be ready by Sunday.
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Andy Dalton needs to play much better than he has in the past few weeks if the Bengals are going to pull off a franchise rarity.

The Cincinnati Bengals remain a very healthy team as they head into their game this Sunday at Heinz Field against the Pittsburgh Steelers and their Thursday injury report reflects it.
Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (head) was unable to practice on Thursday after practicing fully on Wednesday and the word is that he suffered a setback with his concussion that forced him to miss the...

The Bengals are 8-6 and control their own destiny for a playoff spot, but their struggles against playoff caliber opponents should be their undoing. Andy Dalton was 0-8 against playoff teams last year and he’s just 2-4 against playoff contending teams this season. In all...
The Bengals could lock up a wildcard position in this year's playoffs with a win Sunday against the Steelers. Meanwhile, the Steelers could all but lock up a wildcard position by beating the Bengals. In short, the 6th seed in the AFC playoffs will likely be decided this weekend.
While the Steelers trail the Bengals in the wildcard race by one game, they aren't in a powerless...
PITTSBURGH – The Cincinnati Bengals lead the NFL with 43 sacks and the leader of their pass-rushing mob is a short defensive tackle who split time at his position at the University of Georgia and ...
If we were doing the “confidence points” thing that is popular in college bowl pools – from 1-10 with 10 being the most confident I could possibly be about the Bengals beating the Steelers in Pittsburgh this Sunday … I would go with a 3.5. I don’t think it’s some insurmountable challenge – the 2012 Steelers are just not very good – but they’ll probably use their...
In my weekly column, we take a long look at two more rookies. I will compare their performance to date against my original expectations of them. Let’s continue this series off by looking back at Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Marvin Jones, and Baltimore Ravens running back Bernard Pierce after their Week Fourteen Games:
Marvin Jones, WR CIN
My original thoughts of the wide...
With the Patriots dropping to the third seed in the AFC, and likely staying put there, let's take a look at the most likely road to the Super bowl the Patriots will have to face.What's most important for the Patriots is who receives the sixth seed because that will be who they play in the first round. That means that this upcoming match up between the Bengals and Steelers...
