Now, after a week away from the game to recover from any injury and with extended preparation, the Bengals look to take on AFC North rival Pittsburgh Steelers in what should be one of the Bengals’ most important games of the season.

The last time the Bengals defeated the Steelers was in a 20-10 victory in Week 2 of 2013. However, since then the Steelers have had the upper hand. A year ago, the Steelers bested the Bengals in a season sweep, including a division clinching matchup in Week 17.

The Bengals have undoubtedly been the better team in 2015 due to the dynamic success of what has become the NFL’s second ranked offense. Behind quarterback Andy Dalton and the plethora of passing targets in the offense, The Bengals has been poised to put up high numbers each week.

By overcoming the Steelers on Sunday the Bengals will extend their dominance over the AFC North and will move one step closer to earning a first round bye come playoff time. In order to do so, these will be the three Bengals to watch against the Steelers.
