The AFC North comes into focus this week with the Bengals and the Steelers both in search of bounce-back wins.

It was another long day at the office for Joe Burrow against a relentless Chicago Bears pass rush in Week 2, while the Steelers suffered a rare home upset against the red-hot Raiders.

Typically speaking, this fixture has been a guaranteed win for the Steelers over the last five years – or at least that was the case before the Bengals finally snapped their 11-game losing streak last year.

As far as this one goes though, I’m with the Bengals to cover.

Pittsburgh’s pass rush isn’t nearly as fierce as Chicago’s, and it could potentially be missing star linebacker T.J. Watt.

Offensively, I also think the Bengals have what it takes to really take it to the Steelers.

Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase were electric in Week 1, and it was nice to see Tyler Boyd join in on the action against the Bears.

Verdict

There are still plenty of questions surrounding the arm strength and the injured pectoral of Ben Roethlisberger, so I like the younger, more talented Bengals to hang around at Heinz Field.
