While the AFC North might not be the bad boys they once were, the Pittsburgh Steelers are on the verge of doing something Sunday vs. the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7 at Heinz Field they haven’t done since 2008.
With a win today, the Steelers would start the season 3-0 in division play. The last time this happened was in 2008, which was the second of back-to-back seasons where the team accomplished this feat.
Check out how they have started in division play under Mike Tomlin:
The Steelers have played the division well the past few years, but experiencing an early sweep would be huge for a lot of reasons. A win Sunday over the Bengals doesn’t just give them an early 3-0 record within the AFC North, but would also distance themselves from the rest of the teams who consider the AFC North home.
All with a win on Sunday.
Yeah, to say this game is a big game might be the understatement of the season, so far. Stay tuned to BTSC for the latest on this game, and more!
