Alright, after calming down and taking a week to process what happened in Chicago, it’s time to move on because already the Bengals have a huge game Monday night against the rival Pittsburgh Steelers. Luckily for the Bengals sake, all of the teams in the division lost and with a win over the Steelers they can jump out to a lead in the division.
The Steelers have had not just bad luck, but horrible luck with the injuries to key players on both the defensive and offensive side of the ball. Let’s take a look at 5 players from the Bengals who need to be on their game this week.
Don’t be surprised if an unexpected player emerges in a good or bad way this week. Impact Players for the Bengals:

LT Anthony Collins: AC played a great game against a future Hall of Famer last week and now will have to go to the other end of the career spectrum and face the rookie out of Georgia Jarvis Jones. The Pittsburgh first round pick will draw the start this week after playing in a rotational role last week capturing 4 tackles for loss.
