Cincinnati Bengals veteran tackle Andrew Whitworth is active for the Monday night game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and expected to start after missing all of the preseason and the first regular season game last week with a knee problem.
Whitworth, a one-time Pro Bowler, had a procedure done on one of his knees during the offseason to clean up some scar tissue that had bothered him the last few years. However, he needed a second procedure done on his knee after suffering a setback during training camp.
Whitworth will be going up against Steelers rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones and Jason Worilds Monday night as Pittsburgh is expected to rotate their outside linebackers once again. The only difference this week is that Jones is expected to make his first career start.

The fantasy community has been saying it all summer – “its only a matter of time before Giovani Bernard proves that he’s the better fit for the Bengals’ system and the better back overall.” Tonight, on football’s biggest stage, he proved it.

Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley got his 2013 season off to a good start last Sunday against the Tennessee Titans by recording one sack and four total tackles. Should Woodley register his second sack of the season Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals, he will pass Greg Lloyd (53.5) for the fifth most sacks in team history since sacks became an official...
Last year, in his first full season with the Pittsburgh Steelers, reserve defensive lineman Al Woods played all of 30 snaps on defense. In the season opener last Sunday against the Tennessee Titans, Woods, a former fourth-round draft pick of the New Orleans Saints, played a third of that 2012 amount and he will likely surpass that number by the time the team reaches their bye week...

The Pittsburgh Steelers appear poised to get more use out of their defensive rookies than they have in a long time tonight as they take on James Harrison and the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Cincinnati Bengals haven’t fared too well against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the franchise’s history, having been on the losing end of plenty of games over the past couple of decades. Since 2000, the Bengals are 7-20 against their divisional rivals. It seems, though, that the momentum has shifted and the Bengals are without a doubt the better team.

Early season divisional matchups are always important, but tonight’s game between the Bengals and the Steelers holds particular importance for the teams involved. The winner will keep pace with the Baltimore Ravens atop the AFC North, but the loser will fall a game back in a division that could very easily be decided by a tie-breaker at the end of the season.
The Steelers are...
