The win was big over the Steelers because:

1. It gives us the current tie-breaker and the division lead

2. It knocks the biggest threat to the Bengals’ AFC North title down to 0-2

I think this win was monumental, a dawning of a new era in the AFC North. Last night showed just how bad the Steelers are and just how good the Bengals are. The Bengals have a legitimate shot of dominating this division for years to come. Tyler Eifert and Jermaine Gresham are going to do some extremely special things.

Gio Bernard and BenJarvus Green-Ellis are going to be a helluva tandem if you ask me. Gio’s speed compliments BJGE’s power, and BJGE’s power compliments Gio’s speed. Back to the tight ends, who I am the most excited about, we could see the next great 2-TE tandem.

Eifert has hands that are seemingly made of glue, and Gresham is nearly impossible to bring down. This TE threat will make A LOT of room for A.J. Green.

As for the defense, look for them to settle in. Michael Johnson, Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap could be the AFC’s d-line in the Pro Bowl this year. The linebacking corps is a little thin, but it is very talented.

Now, Andy Dalton has vastly improved from last year, but still missed a couple of wide open receivers Monday. If we can stop that and have a #2 receiver step up, this team could become unstoppable.
