The Steelers are well on their way to securing the AFC North crown. They lead the Ravens by three games in the division and have won six in a row.
This week, they’re traveling to Cincinnati to face a 5-6 Bengals team. But even during down years, the Bengals always give the Steelers a battle, says head coach Mike Tomlin.
“Recent history against these guys, how emotional these games are, how big these games have been – man, how many times have we played these guys in December and January in the last few years, seemingly always in Cincy – I think those things have captured the attention of our guys,” said Tomlin.
The Steelers face the Bengals Monday at 8:30 p.m. Pittsburgh won the previous meeting 29-14.
