Cincinnati Bengals vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, Monday Night Football week 4. The Steelers are looking for the first win of the season after three consecutive losses. Roethlisberger will not be available for long. The season for the Steelers will come to an end if the team does not start winning games. The Bengals are in the same situation, three losses in three weeks without hope of anything else. Andy Dalton is healthy, but the offensive is a disaster.
Cincinnati Bengals: Without Ben we can win.
The Bengals can take advantage of playing against the Steelers and win while Roethlisberger is in surgery. The three losses were not so painful for the Bengals. In the first week the team lost against the Seahawks 20-21. But the second week was a tough defeat against the 49ers at home 17-41. Last week they were close to another victory against the Bills but lost 17-21.
This season the Bengals are averaging 18 points per game, 17.3 rushes with 42 rush yards, 27.0 completed passes with 308.3 pass yards. The first half is the best of the offense with 9 points on average. The defense allows up to 27.7 points per game, 34.3 rushes with 168.7 rush yards, 18.3 completed passes with 238.3 pass yards.
Andy Dalton is healthy, with him the Bengals are averaging almost 30 completed passes per game, but that is no use to win without a good offense. In three weeks Dalton is averaging 62.79% with 81 completed passes, 978 yards, 5 touchdowns and three interceptions. Three personal rushes with a touchdown.
Pittsburgh Steelers: At home we can improve.
Steelers can win at home today if they forget Ben Roethlisberger. The team has to stop thinking about Roethlisberger’s lack and focus on winning games. The three weeks of the season have been losses for the Steelers against Patriots 33-3, Seahawks 28-26 and the third week against 49ers 20-24. For at least the last two games the offensive was playing better than during the first week against the Patriots.
The team is scoring an average of 16.3 points per game, 17 rushes with 64 rush yards, 20.3 completed passes with 205.3 pass yards. The only quarter where the Steelers average more than five points is the fourth quarter with 6.7 points. The defense is weak allowing up to 28.3 points per game, 34 rushes with 139.3 rush yards, 302.7 pass yards.
Mason Rudolph will be available for this game as quarterback. 286 yards, 4 touchdowns, 2 interceptions and 29.9 rating. So far Rudolph lost in the only two games where he was starting quarterback.
