Steelers vs Bengals: Stat predictions for Pittsburgh’s top players

The Pittsburgh Steelers seem to find a way to pull out wins when people least expect it and they’ve done it without lighting up the box score in many cases. This week the Steelers welcome the Cincinnati Bengals to town and we have a sneaking feeling the Bengals are going to play better than the first time this season and Pittsburgh will have to answer on both sides of the ball.

Here are our stat predictions for the top Steelers in all three phases.
