As it stands right now, the Pittsburgh Steelers are currently predicted to lose to the 6-4 Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. The current spread on the game is -3.5 in favor of the Bengals.
There is hope that top players T.J. Watt, Joe Haden, and Minkah Fitzpatrick will play. With these players in the lineup, this will hopefully be a huge help in stopping Bengals quarterback, Joe Burrow. Burrow is currently 2nd in the NFL in interceptions and 5th in passing touchdowns. More on the interceptions; Burrow is first in the NFL in pick 6’s with 2.
With the top defensive players possibly coming back for the Steelers, there is definitely a chance that they steal a win on the road. Along with the star-studded defense, it will be another opportunity for Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to prove that he is able to be the Steelers star quarterback. Even if he is not leading the league in passing yards, he is still capable of putting together games in which he can throw multiple deep bombs down the field.
