The Pittsburgh Steelers will play the Cincinnati Bengals next Sunday and it’s a must-win game for the black and gold, who dropped to 7-5 on the season thanks to their home loss Sunday to the New Orleans Saints. The line for the Steelers game against the Bengals opened up with Cincinnati being favored by four points but it has now moved to three and a half at most online betting sites.
The Bengals escaped with a 14-13 victory Sunday over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and it doesn’t appear as though they suffered any major injuries in that game. While defensive tackle Domata Peko missed the second half with an elbow injury, he said he would be fine after the game even though he left the locker room wearing a sling.
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton battled the flu Sunday and threw three interceptions in the game on his way to completing 19-of-27 passes for 176 yards.
The Bengals defense has only managed to register 15 sacks so far this season and that’s six fewer than the Steelers defense has right now.
The Steelers are 5-2 on the road against Cincinnati under head coach Mike Tomlin.
