This means that, at least for Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Bengals’ top-3 cornerbacks will be Adam Jones, Dre Kirkpatrick and Brandon Ghee going against Emmanuel Sanders, Jerricho Cotchery and Antonio Brown. Those three have been one of the most productive receiver trios in the NFL:

NAME REC TAR YDS AVG TD LONG 20+ YDS/G FUM FUML YAC 1DN
Antonio Brown 90 132 1240 13.8 7 55 18 95.4 0 0 440 55
Emmanuel Sanders 58 100 661 11.4 5 55 10 50.8 1 0 222 31
Jerricho Cotchery 41 65 571 13.9 9 36 9 43.9 0 0 202 34

Brown has played at an All-Pro level over the past five games in which he’s averaged 108 yards per contest. He’s also caught four touchdowns in his past four games.

Oh, and that Ben Roethlisberger fellow isn’t too shabby either. This will be a very challenging obstacle of the Bengals to overcome in Pittsburgh on Sunday night in primetime, but there’s no reason to believe this team isn’t capable of pulling-off another late-season win in the Steel City.
