The Cincinnati Bengals take on the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday, with a win and a Baltimore loss the Bengals could find the top of the AFC North. Cincinnati would also have the best record inside the division and could find themselves in the hunt for a super bowl appearance. The Bengals were able to turn things around this season after the team was on a losing streak. Andy Dalton has to come out Sunday and play a mistake prof game. If he can limit the turn-over and keep Roethlisberger on the sidelines the Bengals could have a chance at a win.
It isn’t going to be easy, the Steelers defense knows what is at stake in the game and I would expect them to be coming after Dalton. The Bengals have to dig deep and find a way to protect Dalton giving him time to find his receivers down field. If the Bengals can do that the team could put some pressure on the Steelers. With an 8-6 record and the Ravens facing a New York Giants team that needs a win to stay on top of the NFC East, I would expect the Giants to win.
With a Bengals win they could find a share of the lead in the AFC North. The team is going to be facing a hungry Steelers team that is looking for a way to keep their play-off hopes alive. This is going to be a tough game for Cincinnati and the Bengals are going to have to lay it all on the line. Going into Pittsburgh is never easy, going in Pittsburgh looking to eliminate the Steelers chances of a play off spot makes this game that much tougher for the Bengals. This should be a good game.
