1. Stop the Wood

The Bengals have struggled with running backs catching the ball out of the backfield, and Danny Woodhead is definitely going to create some mismatches. He’s not someone to worry about when running the ball near the goal line, but when he has the ball and has some space to work with, the Bengals could struggle with him. The linebackers will have to keep him in check throughout the game.

2. Whisenhunt vs. Zimmer

Ken Whisenhunt was once tha Steelers offensive coordinator, and had a great deal of success with them. He then left to coach the Cardinals, and took them to the playoffs a few times and the Super Bowl. Whisenhunt has played the Bengals numerous times throughout his career and knows how to go against them. Expect a chess match between wo great coordinators.
