CINCINNATI BENGALS (7-4) at PITTSBURGH STEELERS (8-3) Sunday, 1:00 P.M. ET, CBS, Direct TV (709), Sirius (Cin 113, Pit 86) Why Watch The winner takes a huge step toward the playoffs, most likely as a wildcard, but the division title is within reach. Cincinnati is one of three Cinderella staking its claim on a title. Buffalo and Detroit chase division juggernauts. The Bengals have a real shot to overtake the Ravens and Steelers, if they win their upcoming games against them. The Steelers do not intend to cooperate. What To Watch The Bengals won a moral victory in their last contest with the Steelers. They do not give trophies for that. QB Andy Dalton threw two interceptions in the fourth quarter. The Steelers are unforgiving of your mistakes. Cedric Benson could help Dalton avoid mistakes if he and the offensive line gather more than the 57 yards he gained in the last game. The Bengals best shot is to play from a lead. Rookie WR A.J. Green caught one pass in the last game, but it...

Bengals Stomped by Steelers

The Bengals were stomped by the Steelers 35-7 at Heinz Field. Fantasy Spin: Rookie quarterback Andy Dalton put in another subpar performance, as he completed just 11 of 24 passes for 135 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions. He collected a total of three touchdown passes over his last three starts. Running back Cedric Benson was also held in check in a brutal match-up on...

Mistake-prone Bengals fall to Steelers 35-7

Cincinnati wide receiver A.J. Green grew so antsy waiting for Andy Dalton to snap the ball early in the Bengals' game against Pittsburgh, the star rookie flinched.

Pittsburgh Steelers 35, Cincinnati Bengals 7

The Bengals couldn’t get much going against the Steelers today in Pittsburgh.  Andy Dalton only completed 11 of 24 passes for 135 yards with 1 TD pass and 0 INTs.  Bruce Gradkowski finished up this game by completing 3 of 6 passes for 17 yards with 0 TD passes and 1 INT.  Cedric Benson led the way on the ground for the Bengals with 52 yards rushing on 13 carries (4.0 ypc)....

Bengals: What are the Chances...?

The Bengals have experienced a certain amount of success at Heinz Field over the years (at least as compared to the games played in Cincinnati). But I like Pittsburgh’s chances today, though I don’t necessarily believe the Steelers will cover the 6.5 point spread. Bengals fans have good reason to be optimistic about their club’s future, as rookie QB Andy Dalton and rookie WR...

Sunday Prediction: No CB's, Weakened Pass Rush = Tough to Win

When Steelers have the ball:The DL needs to get to the college rapist and prevent those extended plays that Ben kills the Bengals with. Even though the Steelers have one of the worse OL's in the NFL, without Dunlap in the lineup again, it is difficult to slow down Ben. Now that Ben will have the ability to extend plays more frequnetly, Brown and Sanders should cut up the weakened...

Keys to Victory: Bengals at Steelers

Big game for both teams today.  Here is what the Steelers need to do to get the victory today. Keys to Victory: Throw, Throw and Throw some more:  The Bengals are without their top 2 cornerbacks.  Leon Hall is out for the year and Nate Clements is inactive today.  That leaves Kelly Jennings and Pacman Jones.  The Steelers should throw, throw and throw some more.  That leaves...

Bengals routed 35-7 at Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH – With a chance to show that they were going to be taken seriously as a playoff contender, the Bengals produced one of their worst games of the year. Penalties, special teams gaffes and a depleted defense were a bad trifecta to try and match up against the Steelers and Pittsburgh took advantage with a 35-7 victory at Heinz Field. In a crucial four-game stretch against...

Cincinnati Bengals (7-4) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (8-3)

The Cincinnati Bengals bounced back last weekend against the Browns, after losing tough games to the Ravens and Steelers the two previous weeks.  The Steelers have won two games in a row and six of their last 7 games.  The Steelers beat the Bengals three weeks ago in Cincinnati.  Here is a look at the matchups in this game: When the Bengals have the ball:  The Bengals are probably...

Cincinatti Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers Fight For Share of AFC North Lead

By: Rich Bergeron The AFC North is one of the tightest divisons in the NFL this season with three teams at the top with enough time and talent to snatch the lead. The Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers (8-3) go into this week tied for the division’s top spot, but the Steelers will have to fight for it this week. If they lose to the 7-4 Bengals and the Ravens lose to the 4...
