The Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers are about to face off, but before they do, they worked together for a greater cause.
On Saturday, Carlos Dunlap held a fight against bullying event in Pittsburgh, which saw Bengals and Steelers player unite. During the event, Dunlap and teammate Michael Johnson were joined by Steelers safety Mike Mitchell to teach kids about overcoming bullying.
Back in September, Dunlap launched a campaign to tackle bullying one AFC City at a time. He plans to visit with kids before away games in Cleveland (which he’s already done), Pittsburgh (yesterday), Baltimore and Jacksonville on top of visiting with kids in Cincinnati as well.
Dunlap is having kids read “Malik, The Difference Maker,” which is a children’s book written by a by a local Cincinnati author. He is then having the kids fill out a questionnaire about the book and meet with him to discuss what they have learned about bullying over pizza.
Here is a look at the event from this weekend:

It’s great to see that even though the Bengals are about to play the Steelers in a critical AFC North matchup, players from both teams are working together for a bigger cause.
