Cincinnati Bengals vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

What’s the best rivalry in the NFL? The Steelers and Bengals, when they are fully healthy. In Week 15, the Bengals face the Steelers, at Paul Brown Stadium. This game is the actual rematch. Late in the season, in the brutal cold of Cincinnati, Burfict will lead the Bengals against the Steelers in a primetime Sunday night game.

Lately, it seems like the Bengals have gotten a bad rep, and are slowly becoming the dirty team of the NFL. Don’t expect the narrative to change. As long as Burfict is on the field, the Bengals will have that reputation and it’s perfectly fine. The NFL is truly physical. Yet, it is even more of a mental game. Therefore, this is why Cincinnati will have the upper hand. Burfict is in the head of every Steeler and that’s half the battle.

Cincinnati has the chance to sweep the Steelers this season. I believe, after last season’s loss, the Bengals won’t let the Steelers win either of the two matchups. However, we shall see.

Prediction: Bengals Win Close
