Here are five guys that can be major contributors to a big win at home:
The time is now to shake off the rust. The X-Factor has to quiet the "trade me" distraction of the past week. Reestablishing himself as a major threat can open things up for everybody else on the offense.
This guy seems like the heir-apparent to Ramon Foster. But he needs to continue his fierce protection with Foster out and facing a dominant defense.
He's emerging as a leader in the secondary and an omnipotent presence. With big pass and run potential, the everywhere-man can help staunch the Cincy attack.
The tight ends need to contribute more on the receiving end. McDonald is proving himself to be a solid blocker, but he can really befuddle defenses if he gets comfortable with Ben Roethlisberger and becomes a quality receiving option.
Burns might not be alone on an island against the all-world A.J. Green, but he should get a majority of the responsibility. Simply put, stop No. 18 and you stop the Bengals.
