    It was the other way around last year, wasn't it? I think the Bengals won in Pittsburg and vice versa.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    You got it, and I drove to Pittsburgh to root for my black and gold the night before the game. It was freezing cold, snowy, and just flat out nasty outside that day and I basically drove all the way out there to watch the Bengals humiliate my boys, it was a loooooooong drive home on one of the worst overall days I've ever had as a sports fan.

    I'm with Matt, that story made my day a little brighter. Lord knows I've made plenty of miserable treks from Cincinnati to Dayton after bad football games.

    Cincinnati generally plays well at Heinz Field, just as the Steelers play well at Paul Brown.

    I'm not going to predict a Bengals win just yet. Our run defense isnt as sturdy as the Jaguars, so Willie Parker will be a factor, and we are dealing with a lot of injuries. The only thing we really have going into this game is our history in Pittsburgh and that the Steelers are playing a short week, but since they lost to Jacksonville on Monday Night, they could come out with a fire lit under them.

    The key to the game will be the Bengals offense. They HAVE to control the TOP. The Steelers aren't a quick strike offense. THey have their "gadget" plays, but for the most part they are a methodical offense.

    The way you beat that is to get an early lead and run the ball.

    Steelers are a two-point favorite, for what that's worth.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Home team is automatically a 3 point favorite because they're the home team....

    for what it's worth...

    So in other words, Las Vegas has no idea either.

    How will the injuries that the Bengals incurred last week have an effect?
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    They're losing Jackson and Braham, but TJ and Levi will be back.

    That's a plus, but a team needs to be as close to 100% as possible to beat those guys on their own turf.

    The Steelers are Klingons, and they scare me.

    I bet Troy P has the same injury that shelved Madieu for the majority of last year.

    I've had some of those drives as a Bengals fan. For 12 years before Marvin Lewis came to town, I've suffered many a long drive back up I-71 to the Akron area. I think the two worst were the Bucs-Bengals game of 2002 with Akili Smith at the helm and playing the Browns the last game of the season in 2003, watching Lee Suggs single-handedly dismantle the Bengals' playoff hopes. The worst thing about that game was making the trip all the way back up 71 with a bunch of Browns fans hooting and honking their horns in victory as they passed us.

    I've also suffered a few hard defeats at Cleveland Browns stadium, including the infamous Gus Frerotte "Left-Handed Pass" game.

    I agree. Get an early lead and make Pittsburgh's offense one dimensional. When Ben has been forced to throw, the results have been mixed.
