3 REASON WHY THE STEELERS WILL WIN

1) Ben Roethlisberger Roethlisberger hasn't hit his stride since returning, but has always played some of his best football against the Bengals.

2) Troy Polamalu Polamalu had one of his worst games against the Saints. That won't happen two weeks in a row to guy like Polamalu.

3) Monday Madness The Steelers have the second most wins on Monday Night Football (38) and have a 12-4 in prime-time games under Mike Tomlin over the past four years.

3 REASONS WHY THE STEELERS WILL LOSE

1) Special teams Bernard Scott last year returned a kick for a TD against the Steelers. Kicker Jeff Reed has been erractic missing five of six kicks from 45 yards and out.

2) Ocho-Owens Cincinnati receivers Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens might be more style the substance, but still have the ability to make plays in the passing game.

3) It's Benson Running back Cedric Benson is a punishing runner and could present problems for Ziggy Hood, who really wasn't tested against the Saints.

It sure would be nice to have big games from Ben, Troy and Rashard. I don't see our special teams coverage playing bad and it would be great to see Jason Worilds and Stevenson Sylvester light up a few people.
