There are very few guarantees when it comes to the game of football, but when it comes to the Cincinnati Bengals' road game against the Pittsburgh Steelers this week, we've found an exception to the rule. Here's 3 Reasons Why The Bengals Are GUARANTEED To Beat The Steelers.
1. Andy Dalton, Superstar
Dalton has been league MVP level all year long, perplexing defenses with patient reads and fantastic audible work at the line. Other than Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers, no QB this year has been anywhere near Dalton's level. The good times will continue against a Pittsburgh pass defense that currently ranks 27th with 276.9 yards given up per game.
2. Rusty Roethlisberger
Big Ben is likely to return after a long injury layoff, and he's going to be thrown right into fire against a Bengals defense that is primed and ready to rudely welcome him back. After being out of game action for so long, it's going to take Roethlisberger time to readjust to full speed. Too bad for the Steelers that it's going to come too late in this one.
3. Time To Break Away
With a win, the Cincinnati Bengals move to 7-0 and effectively four games ahead of the second-place Pittsburgh Steelers with nine to play. The Bengals host the Browns twice and have a home date with the Rams in the following five weeks, so a win on Sunday could help Cincy backpedal to an AFC North title. That motivation alone is enough to push this Bengals team over the top in a key division matchup.
