My key match-up for this game will be Sam Adams versus the Steelers RBs and O-Line. The Jags did an exemplary job of clogging the middle. Sam Adams will be key to the Bengals successfully mimicking their performance.

The loss of Dexter Jackson magnifies the need for Sam Adams to have a huge--literally and figuratively--game.

The Bengals D-Line hasn't convincingly won a game-long trench-battle against the Steelers in a long time. Maybe this Sunday will be the first.
