If there’s one thing we know about the Bengals, it’s that they hate Joe Burrow. It’s possible the Bengals organization has bet every under for Burrow this season because it’s pretty clear they are looking to get him killed against this season. After getting sacked five times last week, he should probably stay home for this trip. On top of that, guard Xavier Su’a-Filo is doubtful to play, as is receiver Tee Higgins and cornerback Trae Waynes. It could be a long day,
The Steelers have injury issues of their own. Top receiver Diontae Johnson has already been ruled out, as have linebacker Alex Highsmith and defensive lineman Carlos Davis. T.J. Watt is currently questionable, though they may not need him to get pressure on Burrow.
Instead, the worry for the Steelers should be on offense, where they also cannot block at all. It has resulted in a pec injury for Ben Roethlisberger, but more importantly, the production looks more like the second half of last season, which is not good news. Pittsburgh is hoping to use Week 3 as a get-right game, but we’ll see if that’s even possible.
