Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals Pick & Prediction NOV 24TH 2019


The Pittsburgh Steelers are shorthanded after an ugly incident against Cleveland on Monday left center Maurkice Pouncey suspended for two games but need to come together to make a run at a playoff spot. The Steelers will try to push above .500 when they visit the winless Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

Pouncey was handed a suspension by the NFL for his role in a incident between Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph and Cleveland defensive end Myles Garrett, leaving an already shaky Steelers offense without one of its anchors. Pittsburgh, which will play four of its final six games on the road, is one game out of the final wild card spot in the AFC and had a four-game winning streak come to an end when it dropped a 21-7 decision at Cleveland on Nov. 14, with the late-game fight providing an extra black eye to the performance. The Bengals haven't had many performances to celebrate this season and own the NFL's lone winless record and pole position for the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft. Rookie quarterback Ryan Finley made his second start last week but struggled while going 13-of-31 for 115 yards and an interception in the 17-10 loss to Oakland.

ABOUT THE STEELERS (5-5): Pittsburgh could be missing one of its best playmakers on offense Sunday with wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster unlikely to play while battling a knee injury and trying to recover from a concussion suffered last week. Rudolph put up solid numbers during the four-game winning streak but threw four interceptions against the Browns and the entire offense is feeling the pressure. "We've just got to execute," running back Jaylen Samuels told reporters. "When they send pressure on third down, we just got to pick it up with our pass protection. Guys, receivers got to make tough catches. Mason got to make great throws. Everybody's got to execute. That's the main thing."

ABOUT THE BENGALS (0-10): Cincinnati is 30th in the NFL in scoring at an average of 14.7 points and failed to reach 20 points in any of the last five games. Finley is completing 47.5 percent of his passes with one touchdown and two interceptions through his first two games but figures to hold the starting job the rest of the way as the team checks out a bigger sample size. "There are going to be ups and downs with any young quarterback," Bengals coach Zac Taylor told the team's website. "He didn't go to training camp as the starter. He didn't get starter reps until the last few weeks and I feel we continue to see growth in a lot of different areas with him."

EXTRA POINTS

1. Bengals LT Cordy Glenn (concussion) could make his season debut Sunday.

2. Steelers RB James Conner (shoulder) is questionable.

3. Pittsburgh owns a nine-game winning streak in the series, including a 27-3 home victory on Sept. 30 and a playoff win during the 2015 season.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Devlin Hodges replaced Mason Rudolph at quarterback in the second half Sunday and rallied the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers to a 16-10 victory, keeping the Cincinnati Bengals winless on the season.

Hodges was 5 of 11 for 118 yards and hit James Washington on a 79-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter with his second throw of the game as the Steelers (6-5) extended their winning streak over the Bengals to 10 consecutive, including playoffs, going back to 2015.

Chris Boswell kicked a 47-yard field goal with 12:04 remaining to break a 10-10 tie and added a 26-yard kick with 3:21 remaining.

The Steelers' defense was able to seal the victory with a pair of fumble recoveries.

Safety Minkah Fitzpatrick recovered a fumble by Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd at the Steelers' 6-yard line with 8:59 remaining. Linebacker Bud Dupree sealed the victory when he sacked Bengals quarterback Ryan Finley and recovered the ensuing fumble at the Bengals 21-yard line with 3:10 remaining.

Finley was 12 of 26 for 192 yards for the Bengals, while Boyd caught five passes for 101 yards. The Bengals (0-11) are off to their worst start in franchise history.

Rudolph was 8 of 16 for 85 yards and an interception in his first game since the Cleveland Browns' Myles Garrett hit him in the head with his own helmet. That incident came in a Nov. 14 defeat to the Browns that ended the Steelers' four-game winning streak.

The teams combined for 266 yards in total offense and 10 points in a sluggish first half. After a scoreless first quarter, the Steelers broke through first on Boswell's 26-yard field goal with 3:24 remaining until halftime.

The Bengals came right back with their best drive of the day, with the bulk of the yards coming on back-to-back passes from Finley to Boyd.

The first came on a 47-yard pass, with Boyd making a one-handed catch to put Cincinnati on the 15-yard line. It was the longest completion of Finley's brief career. Boyd then caught a 15-yard TD pass from Finley as the Bengals carried a 7-3 lead into halftime.

The consecutive passes accounted for 62 of Finley's 108 yards passing in the first half.
