No ducking implications for Steelers-Bengals rematch

CINCINNATI — The Steelers are 2-1-1 since coming off their bye in Week 7, not bad but not great, either.

They’re also 1-1 in the AFC North this season. Again, not terrible, but not great.

Much like the rest of the AFC this season, there’s been some good, some bad, and a lot of eh. Twelve of the AFC’s 16 teams entered the weekend with 5 or more wins, the Steelers being one of them.

It all adds up for what should be a sprint to the finish over the final seven weeks of the season, beginning this week for the Steelers (5-4-1) against the Bengals (6-4), a team that beat them back in Week 3 at Heinz Field, 24-10.

The Steelers haven’t forgotten about that loss to be sure.
