Peter King Predicts the Bengals Beat the Steelers in Week 10

Sports Illustrated's Peter King wasn't quite convinced that the Bengals could beat the Titans in Week 9. He predicted the Titans to win a tough game by a score of 16-13. He said:

No knock on the Bengals. Just the realization that their hold on playoff contention is still tenuous, and the Titans, playing at home, will match their defensive intensity if not quality of rotation. Matt Hasselbeck realizes Chris Johnson's been kidnapped and been replaced by some fraud with JOHNSON stitched on the back of his jersey. What to do, what to do. This becomes a passing day for Tennessee.

Of course the Bengals did go into Nashville and they did win a tough and not-as-close of game that King predicted. They won by a score of 24-17.

That Bengals-Titans game must have done wonders for King before he set about picking the winners in Week 10 because he has selected the Bengals to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, by a score of 24-20, in Cincinnati for only the second time since the 2001 season. Now he says

Love Ryan Clark's take on Andy Dalton to me this week: "You can tell how good he is for two reasons. One, how much better Cincinnati is with him. Two, how bad TCU is without him." The Steelers see it up close for the first time, and all of a sudden, the Bengals -- with a win, 6-1 in the AFC -- have to be taken very seriously. 

If that doesn't get you pumped up for Sunday's game, I don't know what will.
