Cincinnati Bengals vs Pittsburgh Steelers
The Pittsburgh Steelers will look to add to the misery of their division rival Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday as the teams meet for the first time since Pittsburgh pulled off a dramatic 4th Quarter comeback in the playoffs to beat them last season. I’m not sure revenge will be dealt out by the Bengals here though. The Cincinnati offense is a concern. They lost their very well respected OC in the offseason with Hue Jackson taking the Cleveland head coaching job and we saw this group struggle against the NY Jets with QB Andy Dalton getting sacked several times and the Bengals ground attack being non-existent. Held to just 57 yards rushing while the Steelers had a very strong defensive display against the Washington Redskins on Monday night. Holding them to 55 yards on the ground and forcing Kirk Cousins into bad throws and a couple interceptions. 

 

It won’t be easy for the Bengals to hold up against the Steelers blitz schemes in this one playing on the road for a 2nd straight week. The NFL Odds have already trickled down from Cincinnati +4 at the open to +3 in many places at the current time and it’s worth noting that Pittsburgh was laying 2 points in Cincinnati last year during the playoffs and now they are laying just a FG at home in this game and that opens up some line value with Pittsburgh in a game I expect the Steelers to win and cover making them worthy of being my NFL Week 2 Play Of The Week.
