Bengals vs Steelers: Predict the final score for Monday Night Football

New, comments

What’s your expectation for how the Bengals vs Steelers clash on Monday Night Football will play out?

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

29-14, 24-20, 24-16, 18-16, 33-20, 16-10.

These were the final scores the last six times the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers met. Only the 16-10 score was a win for the Bengals.

On Monday Night Football, the Bengals will look to get their first win against the Steelers since that 16-10 November 1, 2015 victory at Heinz Field. The Bengals haven’t beat the Steelers at home at Paul Brown Stadium for far longer. The Bengals’ winless streak against the Steelers at home dates back to a September 27, 2009 victory. For some reason, the Steelers seem to be better when playing at PBS than the Bengals. That can’t be the case tonight.

The Bengals need a win on primetime to get into the playoff race and even their record to 6-6. It won’t be easy, but yes, it is possible.
