Three things the Steelers must do to beat the Bengals
By Tim Weaver
3. Feed Heath Miller
Miller was held out of last week’s route of the Indianapolis Colts, but according to RotoWire, the Steelers are hopeful that Miller will be able to play on Sunday against the Bengals.
If he’s not able to go, that would be a huge blow for Pittsburgh’s offense, because last time Miller was the most effective weapon.
Antonio Brown was limited to just 47 yards and he caught six of the 11 targets thrown his way. Martavis Bryant was also held in check, catching just four of nine for 49 yards. More than any other Pittsburgh receiver, Miller was able to have his way with Cincinnati’s defense. He caught 10 passes for 105 yards. If the Steelers are going to come out on top this time, Roethlisberger needs to feed him the ball more.

Cincinnati’s linebackers are great pass rushers, but they’re not so good when it comes to pass coverage. Go after them with Miller and force the defense to make an adjustment.
