    Steelers vs Bengals playoff poll

    I'm not sure anybody knows that the Steelers face the Bengals in a playoff game this Saturday around 8:15 eastern time.

    It's arguably the biggest game of the year for both of them.

    Dial up that blitz Marvin. If those back up scrubs beat cinci running the ball well so be it.

    Not bothering with the points, Bengals ML.

    I sort of like Cincinnati's chances here with McCarron at the helm. With Dalton they had absolutely 0 chance of winning.

    He's referring to the Steelers third and fourth string running backs, Toussaint and Todman, who have been on the team since Week 1. Toussaint is a track and field sprinter from Ohio, who played for the Michigan Wolverines. Todman is also a sprinter and is from Massachusetts, who played for the UConn Huskies.

    My money is on Toussaint rising to the occasion somewhat and A.J. McCarron going down like, Jon Kitna did against the Steelers at home in a Wild Card game, when he stepped in for Carson Palmer. Until the Bengals overcome their Bungles history, I’m going to always bet against them come playoff time. If Dalton was playing, I might consider going against the trends.

    I think if dalton were to be announced as the starter the line would not even be impacted

    Yeah but the moneyline price for the Steelers would go way up

    Steelers might be in some trouble without DeAngelo Williams

    I'm trying to figure out how much my victory tax is going to be this year for my bengals. I've bet against them every year since Dalton so no reason to stop now. I look forward to the day it is a losing bet.

    It could be this weekend, it comes down to Big Ben and his OL vs DL. Guy is no different than Farve in the playoffs. You'll get a pick for every TD he scores and Bengals D can get to him.

    Deangelo Williams is out for the steelers. That changes things. I still think steelers win and cover. Too much talent on offensive end. Can AJ muster up enough big plays to score enough points for this to be close? I doubt it.

    I just don't think Cincy will let the Steelers win.
    They are very serious about defending home field.
    I wouldn't be surprised if Roethlisberger has to leave the game
    from the beating he's going to take. He's got bad knees and bad ankles.
