My favorite game of the year! Steelers 31 Bengals 6 The Steelers have won 7 straight games (Ben breaks the record for consecutive games won by a rookie QB). More importantly, the Steelers are now officially playing Steelers football. The running game has been unstoppable for the last 3 weeks, and the D is shutting down the run (less than 100 yards rushing in the last three games COMBINED). Their time of possession advantage is absolutely SICK! The Steelers D is once again nasty and aggressive. The bengals will be VERY LUCKY to control the ball for over 20 mins! There is no way that the Bengals D will be able to stop either the pass or the run. Any attempt to run on the Steelers D will be futile. That leaves Palmer as the Bengals only hope. The Steelers D line will be able to simply push the Bengals O line aside, it is going to get UGLY! Palmer will be running for his life on Sunday, and will make some mistakes. Troy P seems to have a good grasp on Palmer (his college roommate), and I look for Troy to get at lease 1 INT, and a sack. The Steelers have a two game lead in the division, and can even afford to drop a few games and still win the division. I know that this will be the Bengals super bowl, but don't expect the Bengals to be more motivated. The Steelers seem to be more determined not to lose after each win, and seem to be getting better each week. One last thing: Home field advantage (Steelers nation) will really help the Steelers this week in Cincinnati!
