It’s round two of the Cincinnati Bengals vs the Pittsburgh Steelers. Who is on the call for this AFC North showdown?
They stormed into the Steel City and beat down a team who previously had their number. The stripes left Pittsburgh with a 24-10 victory and moved to 2-1 on the year. A month later, they blew out the Ravens in Baltimore and moved to 2-0 in the AFC North.
While the Bengals aren’t a perfect 3-0 thanks to an embarrassing blowout loss to the Browns in Week 9, they’re 6-4 on the season and if the season ended today, they’d be in the playoffs. Pittsburgh can’t say the same thing after they lost to the Chargers on Sunday night.
Who is on the call for Bengals-Steelers?
Bengals fans have gotten used to this broadcast team but we’re never going to complain about Kevin Harlan, Trent Green, and Melanie Collins on the call for Cincy games. This crew called both the Bengals/Ravens and Bengals/Jets games before we had Jim Nantz/Tony Romo/Tracy Wolfson for the Week 9 debacle. Last week, of course, was Ian Eagle calling the game.
I love listening to Harlan’s voice and Green always offers great insight, having played quarterback for over a decade in the NFL. The Bengals getting Harlan on their games frequently means the NFL considers them to be a decent team and with them facing off against division rival Pittsburgh, how could they not get a good announcer pairing for this showdown?
Hopefully, this game goes better than the last one Harlan/Green/Collins were a part of (Week 8 in New York) and that Cincinnati move to 3-1 in the division after taking down the Steelers. If they can knock off Pittsburgh, they’ll sweep the Steelers for the first time since 2009.
