Men in Stripes is presented by Stripe Hype and FanSided Network. It is a weekly Bengals and NFL podcast featuring News, Opinions, and the occasional Tim Daniel Rant.

Tim, Matt, and Shelby are all breaking down a disappointing loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Bengals go to 1-1 on the early season. However, this game was not as clean as everyone was making it out to be, at least on the Pittsburgh side.

Mike Mitchell became the new point of dirty players with a cheap shot on C.J. Uzomah and leading with the crown of his helmet numerous times.

The officials became the point of criticism with a huge missed call with Tyler Boyd’s knee clearly being down before the fumble. C.J. Uzomah looking like he was in bounds when an incomplete call could have been challenged, but wasn’t when Lewis was told that Uzomah went out of bounds becoming an ineligible receiver, despite no hat or marker being thrown.
