Do the Steelers have anything left for the Bengals?

2 huge, emotional, games at home where they split the outcome. 2 of the best teams in the AFC, and 2 of the arguably the better teams in the league battled it out against our Steelers so you can't help but wonder how much emotion they have left in the tank.

Typically you would think that this would be a trap game. Steelers vs Bengals, sure there have been some good games over the years but you usually expect Pittsburgh to win. This year though the Bengals are 6-2 right now and have a top rated defense. Logic would say that this could be a low scoring game and probably a pretty close one, if you base it solely on the standings of both teams right now.

Not even breaking down the X's and O's just yet, how much emotion does this team have right now? Are they going to be so pissed off that they come into Cincy and just completely dominate them or are they going to have trouble getting off the ground in this one...

They had damn well better have some emotion. The Bengals are ahead of them and than they have a bye to relax and catch a breather.

I'm actually looking forward to seeing the Bengals. I haven't watch a play of theirs and their defense is ranked high and their record is very good.

They don't have a choice, they have to get over it and get ready for Cincy.

My feeling on the Cincy game are the Steelers will start out slow and then completely dominate the Bengals.

People here in OH have the Bengals in the SB this year. We have to end that talk Sunday!

Has anyone watched a Bengals game this year? Are they really that good?

I believe they have more than enough in the tank. As a matter of fact, I believe they are more likely to win this game now than they would have been had they beaten the Ravens. This team seems to like to follow up big wins with poor performances and poor performances with big wins. Rather than sleepwalking through next week's game, perhaps they will be more fired up.

Give the Red Rocket a beat down.

I watched the game yesterday. The Bengals aren't bad at all, but I wouldn't classify them as a top tier team based on the teams they have played thus far. They don't make dumb mistakes, the defense seems to be holding up and it looks like Dalton is good at getting the ball out to the right guy. The kind of team that can be beat if you play a solid game, but can also beat you if you let them hang around.

They haven't played anyone yet. I saw some of the Titans game. Traditionally we feast on rookie qbs. Dalton and wr AJ Green are both rookies.

The Steelers will win by 10+ Sunday......The Bengals are solid but Dalton will hit a rookie wall soon....Sunday would be a good start...lol

I think either 2 things will happen. The team comes out pissed and dominates or they start out slow with a hangover from last weeks loss and then have to battle back to win the game.

Steelers will win 23-10...mark it down!! Dalton has not played a division game against us or the Ravens yet and he's about to find out that REAL AFC North games are totally different than playing the likes of the Titans, Colts and Jags!!

We talked on the podcast tonight about how the Steelers will be able to get up for this game after 2 emotionally draining games the last 2 weeks. This is the final game before a bye week and some rest, you must win this game and go into the bye 7-3. Losing 3 divisional games is not going to help your cause for the playoffs at all.

Dalton and the Bengals are going to run into a buzzsaw on Sunday. This game wont be close. Ben is going to throw for over 400 yards and 4 td's. Steelers will have the ball for almost 40 minutes.

A.J Green is the truth and Dalton is playing surprisingly well (well enough for some people to talk about he should be named rookie of the year over Cam), but if they win over Steelers I'd be really chocked. The Steelers HAS to be pissed about the Ravens game and sadly for Bengals, they are the victims. Dalton has yet to see a defense as good as Steelers and actually win - they did play Niners hard but only managed to put 9 points on the board.

If they have nothing left then I don't know what to say cause it's getting to be time when the Big boys step up and and play ball.

If they don't, then they can kiss the division and likely the playoffs goodbye.

I've watched the Bengals play this year and they look solid. Don't underestimate them.

Titans move the ball on them. Don't remember a lot. I got bombed after the Steelers game. But I do remember that much.:lol:

Exactly. They cannot be overlooked. Dalton is performing at a very high level for a rookie QB and their defense is not full of pushovers. This Bengals team is more reminiscent of the 2009 Bengals than the 2010 crew.

This Steelers team has no room to underestimate anybody. Their margin for error is quickly narrowing and if there are any hopes for the division or a good seed in the playoffs as a wildcard they must win this game. In the end it will still come down to the Steelers and Ravens for the division as long as we take care of business this coming Sunday. There is no excuse to not be hyped up for this game and bring the Bengals back down to earth where they belong.
