With wins over the Packers, Steelers, and Ravens (twice), it’s safe to say the 2009 Bengals are for real.
The tickets to Sunday’s Bengals-Steelers game may not be.
The Steelers and Heinz Field management released an alert Saturday to watch out for counterfeit tickets because of the increased interest in Sunday’s AFC North tilt. They say to be especially wary of scalpers selling paper tickets printed through the TicketExchange service.
While this is Cincinnati’s most important game since 2006, it’s arguably bigger this season for the Steelers. A loss would put essentially put the Steelers two games behind Cincinnati with seven to play because the Bengals would have the head-to-head tiebreak. The next three opponents for Marvin Lewis’ sons of Hard Knocks have combined for four wins this year.
Our PFT picks predict the Steelers will barely find a way to win.
