The Pittsburgh Steelers(4-1) travel to Cincinatti this Sunday October 19th (the Irish-Docs B-Day) for an AFC North Divisional battle vs the Bengals(0-6).  Kickoff @ 1pm EST CBS.  The series between these two rivals dates back to 1970.  The Steelers leading in overall wins by 46-30.  The Black n' Gold have also won 7 of the last 9 games & are looking for a 7th straight victory on the Bengals home turf.  A win this week for the Steelers would prove their AFC domination by improving their record to 5-0 for the season against AFC opponents. 

Game-Day Logistics:

Steel Offense:  Willie Parker (RB), is most certainly out this week w/ a nagging knee injury.  In his place will be Moore, Davenport, & Russell.  Moore rushed w/ power & speed his last outing vs the Jags.  Look for much "moore" to follow this week from this trio of downhill rushing attack artists...

Steel D:  Casey Hampton (NT) is out for the game due to a groin strain (rest over aggrivation being the key factor).  In his place will be yet again the veteran Chris Hoke.  Chis probably played the best game of his career @ the Steelers victory vs the Jags.  He showed his moxy by going out-right full-throttle every snap of the ball...  The epitomy of Steelers Football.....

Bungals Offense:  Will be lead by QB & Harvard grad, Ryan Fitzpatrick.  This young brainiac has talent, but has yet to give his 0-6 team a V this season...  Containment followed by Pressure is the Steel D main strategy...  Also, you can't talk Bungal-Ball without mentioning Ocho-Stinco, Whos-Yah-Mama, & Henry (Chris need not a nickname).  All 3 have talent streaming out their backsides.  The only problem is lack of dicipline.  Key for the Steel D is to shut-down all 3, with special emphasis on Ocho-Cinco...

Bungals D:  Have given up 6 rushing TD's this year...  But,  keep an eye on Thornton & Peko (DT's).  These two men got the right stuff...  This is an opportunity for Moore & Russell to do some rushing damage.  The Bungals D can be exploited on the ground & this is the primary battle tactic of the Black n' Gold (Smashmouth - The way Steel Ball has been since its birth in the NFL). 

 

To Sum It Up:  A more vigerous battle for the Black n' Gold than the NFL Gurus have predicted.  The Men of Steel have the Bungals number yet again this year...  Steel Victory by a TD.....

 Black n' Gold!!!!!
