There’s an old saying: if you hit rock-bottom, there’s no way but up! Many teams have managed to rise above a 0-3 deficit, and most of the Bengal’s losses only had a few points against their favor. That being said, the players definitely need to improve their overall game. The Cincinnati Bengals had a disappointing 37-23 previous game against the Bills. Despite the loss, Andy Dalton collected more pass yards at 308.3, while chalking in a terrible 42.0 rush yards at every game mark. Aside from Dalton’s 2 touchdowns and 1 interception, Mixon added in 61 yards, while Auden Tate kept up the receiving end with 88 receiving yards and 6 connected passes. Joe Mixon, hampered by an injury, only managed to do 15 carries for a total of 61 yards. The Bengals will most likely depend on their defense to wear down the Steelers.

The Steelers’ Mason Rudolph finished the previous game with 174 yards, one interception ,and one touchdown. The 49ers, their opponents in the previous game, pinned down the Pittsburgh Steelers‘ offensive line, limiting to just 3.6 yards per carry despite 22 attempts. The Steelers are facing the same predicament: they don’t want to bow out of the league with zero wins! The Steelers should preferably capitalize on their ability to force turnovers- they forced San Francisco to commit five- but should look towards converting these turnovers into solid touchdown points. There’s a lot to be compensated in terms of defense, with Steelers clocking in at 28th rank against the rush so far.
