    Steelers-Bengals II

    I'll wait until later in the week to make my prediction, but unless we get Minkah, Haden and Watt back, I'm thinking it's going to be some tough sledding for the good guys.

    Doesn’t matter.

    Bengals are slipping and our offense finally showed signs of life last week.

    Another shootout but this time we win.

    Bungles 19

    Without them, we'll be giving up some points for sure.
    From the 2010-2020 season, (A 11 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Currently, Tomlin hasn't won a playoff game in 4 years.

    Dolphin fans in the 90ís held on to Don Shula for too long for what he did in the playoffs in the 70ís...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2021 ) holding on to Tomlin for too long for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches.

    Steelers - 77
    Bengals - 7

    7 was hanging out with Stella last week and 7 got his groove back.

    We got this. No worries. Hopefully more folks give up on the game because when folks started bailing on Sun night, that’s about when we started playing a bit better. Then I think some of yinz tuned back into the game at the end and brought us down with your voodoo curse.

    It’s ok. 7 don’t care. 7 ready to go.

    7 gonna get 7.

    Have to see who is back on D, that D last game will have trouble beating anyone.

    I thought they played pretty good vs. the Raiders this past Sunday, 32-13 win with some strong D -- looked much better than we have the past couple of weeks.

Part of this is because CIN completely shut off Harris who avg'd just 2.9 yds/att and had just 1 first down. But the counter to that is that he was the best receiver for PIT on the day.
    Steelers drive chart;

    PUNT

    INT

    TD
    PUNT
    INT
    MISSED FG
    FG
    DOWNS
    DOWNS

    Fortunately the OL is improved (a little). But CIN defense is still playing strong. The Steelers need more than Harris to contribute on offense. Canada's playcalling has been sketchy of late. He needs to be better, or expect more shrugs from the QB.

    I expect the Bengals to approach the game the same as last time; shut down Harris, force Roethlisberger to throw 35+ passes and wait for his mistakes. If he manages to limit mistakes this could be a tight ball game, with Boz winning it at the buzzer.

    Steelers - 24
    Bengals - 21

    Claypool has to be more of a weapon than what he’s been utilized so far. Especially in the red zone.
