Week 12: Steelers @ Bengals

Recommended Posts

Nice thing about tonight’s game is that a playoff race rival has to lose.

Well, barring a tie.

Weird feeling to be sitting here at 6-4 and a chance to root like hell against the Steelers.

chargers pull it out! gut punch loss in end for the steelers. a lot on tape for the team to use to get ready for both the steelers and chargers in next two weeks. Win!

Hopefully TJ Watt is still out. It’d be a big stroke of luck to miss him twice.

Heyward worries me.   Great player never really though of him as a dirty player but there was some stuff from last night that are very questionable.   If it was Burfict there would be multiple articles on it this morning.

1st - He drug down Herbert from behind in a hustle play but used his legs to trip him up.   That can destroy a QBs knee right there.   Very dirty play, IMO.

2nd - After a Herbert scramble he's laying on the QB for some reason.  Of course Collinsworth is too busy congratulating him instead of pointing what the hell is he doing. 

3rd - Then in the aftermath of him laying on the QB, it looks like he punches Herbert low.

Silly Amphar. Don’t you know there are no dirty players on the Pittsburgh team? Why, there have never been any dirty players on that team and never will be. Dirty players are for the other 31 teams. In Pittsburgh, it’s just good ol’ Steelers Football. ‘Murican as mom ‘n’ apple pie. Your contention that Hayward did anything wrong just betrays your bias against the Steelers, who never do anything wrong. Even the refs agree!

Steeler board is saying Bouchette (local beat writer) is saying its doubtful Watt and Haden are back this week.

Now throw in Minkah Fitzpatrick and we basically see the same team the Chargers played.  That would be great.

I know there is so much that can go wrong from here - but just wanted to pause and say that, relative my expectations at least - being 6-4 at this juncture is an unexpected and pleasant surprise. That they are going to play at least some meaningful games in December is a massive step forward from the uncertainty of the off-season and Burrow's recovery and the coming off of 2 and 4 win seasons. Happy to have a reason to watch games this late in the year for something other than hoping for losses to improve draft position at any rate.

How lucky would we be to play the Steelers twice without Watt

About as lucky as they were playing us with Bobby Hart.

Tomlin just said he expects to have Haden, Fitzpatrick, and Watt all back for the Bengals game.  We’ll see.

No flex for us next week.

 

Tv really can’t show the Chiefs enough.  They seem to have a national game in some time slot or another every week.
