Bengals – Steelers II Open Thread

The Cincinnati Bengals go for a sweep of the Pittsburgh Steeler today at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. Cincy WR Maurice Purify, called up from the practice squad just this week, is active today. Out are LB Keith Rivers and G Evan Mathis, as well as usual bench-warmers Jerome Simpson, Crash Dummy, and Moobs.

On the Steelers’ sideline, DE Travis Kirschke and former Bengals CB Keiwan Ratliff are among the inactives.

    Bengals trail by 3 at the half, which has to be considered a victory. Both teams have lost key guys, Troy for Pitt and Benson for Cincy. Neither QB has been particularly sharp. Bengals have shot themselves in the foot a couple times with penalties that killed good returns, but Pitt has committed its share of foul-ups as well. Bengals D playing well with 4 sacks and not allowing a TD. Q3 will tell. That’s where the Steelers usually come out and steamroll the Bengals.
