Steelers’ greatest concerns vs. greatest comforts after Week 10
The Pittsburgh Steelers embarrassed the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 10.
This game wasn’t nearly as close as I thought it would have been. Granted, the Steelers are far more talented across the board than the Bengals. Yet, I really thought that in a shootout type game, Joe Burrow was good enough to keep it close. It wasn’t a shootout, it was a massacre. Ben posted a season-high in passing yards and that was in a game in which they never lost the lead.
They had some great play on offense, defense, and special teams yet again. That was the catalyst for such a commanding win for Pittsburgh. It was a great day for all 3 personnel groups. Pittsburgh looked like they did not want a repeat of such a rough Week 9 game and they did not allow that to happen.
The lead Pittsburgh had attained only grew larger and larger as the game wore on. It was a great change of pace from what we had seen from the black and gold with all of the close games in recent weeks. In a game where the Steelers won handily, there are plenty of comforts to choose from, but 2 comforts stand out more than the rest. There are also two large concerns for me after Week 10.
I think it was a great team win overall. Yet, there are a lot of things that need to be talked about after this win. This was a banged-up Bengals team, that was missing some stars to the likes of Geno Atkins and Joe Mixon. There was some good and some bad in this one even in such a blowout.
