Week 7 Sunday Night Football Open Thread: Steelers at Bengals

The Steelers play the Bengals on Sunday Night Football - come join us!

Tyler Barrick

Tonight's Sunday Night Football matchup features two AFC North teams mired deep in the pack that is the AFC. Pittsburgh is 2-3 and under .500 prior to week 7 for the first time since their 2005 Super Bowl victory; however, they've managed to give away fourth quarter leads in all three losses, including ten unanswered points in the final 4:20 to Tennessee and 17 unanswered points to Denver to open the season.

The Bengals' road hasn't been particularly cheery either - they've lost back-to-back games after winning three straight, and Andy Dalton matched his three touchdowns by throwing three interceptions. AJ Green, though, is having a superb season, leading the Bengals with 43 receptions, 628 yards, and six touchdowns.

However, expect a defensive, running game and a half - neither team allows more than 228 yards per game through the air and neither team allows more than 350 yards of total offense consistently.

That being said, this is your Sunday Night Football open thread. As always, Open Thread Responsibly (TM).
