And really, next week is a make or break game for the season. A win puts them one back, a loss and they're 3 back and pretty much done.
Yep. But as much as it pains me to admit this, that game has all the makings of a lopsided L. The Steelers have an excellent running game, a stout defense with exotic blitzing schemes, and sound special teams. All three are kryptonite for the Bengals.
Unless the Bengals can come away +2 or better in the TO department, I just don't see how they win that game.
