The Steelers are looking to rebound from a loss in Kansas City and hope to get Ben Roethlisberger back from knee injury in time to face the division-rival Cincinnati Bengals. While they’re preparing for their three-game home stand we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Wednesday, Oct. 28th.
Before Tomlin confirmed Ben Roethlisberger was returning to the field this Sunday against the Bengals he met with The Cook and Poni Show on 93.7 The Fan and spoke about how big this AFC North matchup is.
"“Huge game, huge. This is one of the best teams in the NFL right now, plus they’re in our division, plus it’s in our house. This is a game that we kind of need to see what we’re made of offensively, defensively, special teams…It’s because it’s a team that’s playing with a lot of confidence, a lot of belief in each other, and they are one of the elites in this league, so this will be a good test for us.” – Ben Roethlisberger"

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler seems pretty confident in the Steelers chances to dethrone the Bengals from the ranks of the unbeaten with Ben Roethlisberger back on the field. Fowler explains that if Roethlisberger’s knee even close to healthy he gets the edge over Andy Dalton, who Fowler describes as “still on a lower shelf in the quarterback hierarchy.”
Fowler is suggesting that Roethlisberger’s return will ignite the Steelers’ offense with quick passes, explosive plays and he’ll be able to elevate the play of those around him. You heard it here, put all your money on the Steelers.
This brave child enters the Steelers locker room and has some entertaining encounters with members of the Steelers defense.
