The Steelers latest victory was one you couldn't enjoy in the moment

When the Steelers are preparing to take on the Bengals, as a fan, you always fear for a serious injury.

Why? Because this particular AFC North rivalry isn't of the sibling variety, meaning, the hate Pittsburgh and Cincinnati have developed for each other in recent years doesn't have mutual respect at the heart of it.

At the heart of it, is Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict, certainly the catalyst for the bad-blood, due to his seemingly endless cheap shots that have injured more than one Steelers player over the years.

With that as a backdrop, you may have been a little uneasy about Monday night's clash at Paul Brown Stadium.
