They Can Dominate In The AFC North

They say that a divisional game is one of the toughest games to play all season, and the Bengals have dominated the Browns, and did dominate the first half against the Ravens. The Pittsburgh Steelers are a difficult team to play against but still not out of the realm of beatable.

The Bengals beat the browns by a total score of 68-13 in their two match ups. In fact the defense has only allowed 47 points in 4 games against the division, while scoring 112 points total. If the Bengals can keep up this pace, they should beat both the Steelers and Ravens by an average score of 28-12. A dream obviously, but not out of line with the Ravens being completely drained with injuries, and the Steelers secondary struggling to contain the passing game.

The Bengals are 4-0 going into week 14’s match up against the Steelers. The Steelers, who will be playing without Le’Veon Bell thanks to Vontaze Burfict in their first match up, will be looking for revenge. The Steelers will be playing for their playoff lives, as they are 7-5 and on the outside looking in,  for the wild card. The Steelers hopes for the AFC North are dim but they are still fighting for a wild card spot. The Bengals could finish the AFC North with a win.
