Bengals Looking at Green
A.J. Green is the big cog in the Cincinnati Bengals offense. The Bengals offense needs him to come through strong in this game. But, his production is based on the performance of quarterback Andy Dalton. Those two have connected 53 times for 809 yards and 6 touchdowns The Bengals offense is one of the worst at passing the ball with under 200 yards per game.
Joe Mixon is also a huge key. The rookie out of Oklahoma needs 16 yards to get to 500 on the ground this season. The running back has rushed into the end zone 4 times this season. Cincinnati has been even worse on the ground than they have via the pass. The Bengals pair of wins came over the Broncos in Denver, and at home against the Cleveland Browns.
Pittsburgh Seeking 10th Win

If no Brown, look for Le’Veon Bell to get even more of the workload. The running back has rushed for more than 980 yards this season and 5 touchdowns. The Steelers are 13th in the league with 23.3 points per game.
