Steelers vs. Bengals Q&A with Jason Marcum of Stripe Hype

4 of 7

4. Which player on Pittsburgh’s roster do you believe presents the biggest challenge for Cincinnati to deal with on Sunday and why?

I think Ben Roethlisberger will have a big game vs. the Bengals. The secondary is banged-up and Antonio Brow, Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery should be able to get open consistently for Ben to have a big day passing-wise. 

It’s worth pointing-out that the Bengals have never beaten the Steelers without cornerback Leon Hall (0-3 all-time). He made a game-changing play vs. the Steelers last year when he got a pick-6 at the expense of Big Ben, and he’s consistently made it tough for the Steelers passing game to get going. Not only that, by Terence Newman will also be out Sunday, paving the way for a Ben to pick apart the Bengals secondary.
