Re: Steeler Week
I actually feel pretty good about Cincinnati's chances Sunday. They obviously have the offensive advantage and I think the special teams are a wash. The game (as most Bengals/Steelers games do) will come down to who plays better defensively.
The run defense has looked pretty good so far this young season. Holding Larry Johnson to only 60-some yards is an impressive thing and maybe just maybe the Steelers miss Jerome Bettis more than they think they do.
I think if you take away thier running game, you win the game. Despite his post season last year, I still don't think Big Ben can beat you if you force him to put the ball in the air on a consistant basis especially when he's still trying to get his feet wet this season.
I understand many folks will pick Pittsburgh just because they're the big, bad Steelers. But I feel pretty good going into the game.
