A battle between two teams looking to capitalize on a pretty brutal Ravens loss to Houston earlier today.
Steelers vs. Bengals Week 7 pregame (via SBNSteelers)
If you think about it, this is kind of a playoff game.
I know, it's weird thinking of a playoff game in Week 7, and one involving the Cincinnati Bengals, but the Steelers really do need this game, if for no other reason than to generate some momentum after one of the worst starts to a season in recent memory.
Attached to this open thread is our fantabulous Google Hangout pregame show, featuring Lance Williams and Marc Bowers. We're going to try to do one of these pre and post game next week, and if you want to be involved, let me know.
While you're at it, comment the way you always do on these things. The Steelers need your emotional support from far away or near by. I get the feeling this game is going to be epic, and we're going to see flashes of Steelers late game heroics of the past.
As it is, we're getting fired up, it's prime time so let's hang out.
