The Steelers used to be a great team, but it isn't the case this season. A ridiculous 79% of NFL RUSH Pick Em players have picked the Steelers to beat the Bengals this week. This game is in Cincinnatti and the Steelers are 0-3 on the road this year. That right there should be enough –– but I've got more.
While the two teams are almost even in the standings, the Bengals have more offensive weapons. QB Andy Dalton is fifth in the NFL with 1,726 yards passing, and WR A.J. Green leads the league in receiving with 628 yards. The running game isn’t even close, with the Steelers ranked at 31 out of 32 teams in yards per game at an embarrassing 74.8 yards per game. The Bengals are running for 99.3 per game.
Did one of you say defense? Yes, the Steelers have a pretty solid defense, but the Bengals have shown a pretty aggressive defense as well. The Bengals are second in the NFL with 20 sacks and we all know the troubles the Steelers have protecting Big Ben. I think the Bengals will earn their stripes in this game.
Hey Steelers! You’re on Upset Alert!
