You may recall the old "In the Hunt" futility statistic. To be in the hunt, a team must be no more than one game under .500 and cannot have as many as eight losses. The assumption is that a winning record generally gets a team in the playoffs, and we know that that isn't always true. So it's a generous estimate.

With the Bungs starting out with three straight losses against Baltimore, Houston, and Green Bay, they looked to be headed for one of those seasons where they are never in the hunt. Then lo and behold, they won their next two against Buffalo and Cleveland.

So now the Bungs are 2-3 and playing the 4-2 Stoolers at Pittsburgh. A win keeps them in the hunt for another couple of week while a loss likely drops them out of it for perhaps the rest of the season. On the other hand, we might be on the edge of one of those seasons where the Bungs are frequently threatening to get back into the playoff race, but never quite getting there except for an odd week or two. In other words, a paradise for the sheep.

I suspect they lose a close one here in a nationally televised game to tease the faithful.

Bungs 17
Stoolers 20

Over the history of these two franchises, you might that the Bungs at some point when into Pittsburgh and dominated. In a big game. Never happened, as BMN once pointed out. When they win it's close, and they sometimes lose in blowouts.

My prediction is the Bengals keep it close at first and either the Stealers pull away in the second half or the Bengals lose a heartbreaker. I don't foresee a win.

Questions to ask:
~How many times will Marvin crouch and clap with that blank look on his face?
~How many of our players will the Stealers injure - how many will Mike Mitchell or Shazier head hunt?
~Will Burfict take out Leveon Bell again? (I don't wish for this - just wondering)
~How many flags will Burfict and Jones get?
~Will anyone get into a fight?
~How many calls will the refs call that favor their golden team?
~Will we complain about Marvin's clock management and challenges?

Steelers moving the ball with ease. Not a good start.

Moving the ball with ease indeed. Not a good sign but not shocking after watching the Stealers last week.

Pittspuke marched right down the field. So much for that defense that is supposed to be good this year. Now they are finally playing a good offense.

Welp, Stealers on the board already. Oh boy!

Now we have to see if the Bengals can respond, but I have a sick feeling about a 3 and out.

We'll also have to see if Guenther can make adjustments.

It's astounding that Marvin Lewis is coaching in his 31st game vs the Bengals most hated rival and he's won 8 of those.

Well, Marvin has already answered one of my questions. What kind of stupid, time out wasting challenge was this?

Amity Lane:
Analyst: "they need to get that run game going, period."

Yeah...like Bengals fans haven't known this for 20+ YEARS.

Probably still not "approved" so don't know if anyone'll read this today, but know that I'm here suffering with you all.


Still can't approve messages, and Fraidy still hasn't approved you. My perplexity continues.

They didn't go three and out, but they do end up punting.
