Steelers schedule 2022: Game-by-game predictions for upcoming season
By Tommy Jaggi
Week 11: Bengals @ Steelers
Even with this being a completely different Bengals team than the one we saw in past years, it’s hard to envision a scenario in which the Pittsburgh Steelers lose four straight games to this team in a two-year span.
Being at home this time will help as Pittsburgh will have the crowd on their side and should still be pretty well rested just a week removed from their bye. Still, whoever the quarterback is for the Steelers at this point, it’s hard to expect them to outperform Joe Burrow.
The offense is going to need some assistance from T.J. Watt and company to slow down a Burrow to Ja’Marr Chase that proved to be lethal against them last season. This time around, the Steelers will have a new set of cornerbacks matching up against Chase and Tee Higgins in Ahkello Witherspoon and Levi Wallace. Perhaps they will fare better.
Either way, there are only so many games in a row Pittsburgh can lose against the Bengals, right? I think they take this one at home — regardless of what oddsmakers have to say.
