Good morning Bengals Nation. It's Tuesday which means what? Absolutely nothing. It's just another day in the week. The only positive note is that it's no longer Monday. So grab yourself an entire pitcher of coffee, a box of donuts, and enjoy the breakfast of champions.

The Bengals will be hosting their rivals the Pittsburgh Steelers this Sunday. This game will prove to be a pivotal match-up for the Bengals. Currently they are tied for first place with the Baltimore Ravens and are riding a five-game winning streak. 

As for the Steelers, they are coming off a last second loss to the Baltimore Ravens. I would have to assume that their confidence is shaken because they blew a fourth quarter lead with under a minute remaining in the game. 

This game is going to be the biggest challenge that the Bengals have had so far this season. Not only are they facing one of the top defenses in the league, but they are also going up against one of the more potent offenses as well. It's going to be vital that key players such as Maualuga, Jones, Gresham, and Dunlap all be healthy. Those are four players that the Bengals count on and each has a vital role on the field.

As the week progresses we'll get a better idea as to who will be active for the game for both squads. In an ideal world everyone would be completely healthy for the Bengals. But who knows if that will be the case on Sunday. Only time will tell.

Cincinnati Bengals forever, Pittsburgh Steelers never! Can I get a Who Dey?

Alright here is a look at what you may have missed or overlooked from Monday.
