Bengals vs. Steelers first half open thread

Losing sucks. We're rooting for a win here, so join up with other like-minded folks and discuss the game live.

Not many of these left.

We better start making them count.

The Steelers host the Cincinnati Bengals at 8:30 p.m. ET at Heinz Field on Sunday Night Football. This game means little more to the Steelers than bragging rights, and the opportunity to put a dent in Cincinnati's increasing chance to grab the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs.

Wouldn't it just tick them off to lose tonight?

I'm a fan of the team. I'm rooting for wins, because that's what I want. If the team is down, I want to see them learn how to win again. Can't do that by losing.

Plus, it's a division rival. Why anyone will ever want a division rival to win something, in my mind, lessens their weight as a fan.

The Steelers can beat this team. With what looks like the smallest crowd on hand at Heinz Field this season, maybe ever, hopefully they'll play to win for their own reasons, and we can see a good football game.

Respect each other in the open thread, no personal attacks and make guests feel welcome.

Otherwise, GO STEELERS!
