Steelers vs Bengals - October 14th 1 PM @ PAUL BROWN STADIUM
1. STAY BALANCED - Run the ball well early and allow the offense to continue to mix the run with the pass. Don't want to get behind early and get in the habit of passing every play like past games.
2. PRESSURE PRESSURE PRESSURE - Get Dalton rattled early and continue to make them make mistakes. Defense looks half decent as long as we get pressure on the QB.
3. LIMIT MISTAKES - No dumb penalties and win the turnover battle!
On a side note... it's funny the NFL scheduled this game this weekend for a personal reason for me. Tonight my alma mater Fort Cherry HS plays Shadyside Academy at home for our Homecoming game. Mike Tomlin will be there because his son plays on Shadyside which is ranked 4th in the state for 2A. Marvin Lewis, Bengals Head Coach, graduated from Fort Cherry HS in 1977.... so see, Irony! ???
Update: Shadyside Academy won 46-0. Hopefully the senior Tomlin does as well against the FC Alum coaching Cinci.
