WHAT TO LOOK FOR

PITTSBURGH TEAM NOTES• The Steelers look to improve to 329-208 all-time against AFC opponents.• Pittsburgh looks to earn its seventh victory in the last nine games.• Pittsburgh’s defense will look to hold their eighth straight opponentto 23 points or less (0, 20, 17, 17, 13, 20, 17, 23).
• Looking for third consecutive win over the Bengals.

PITTSBURGH INDIVIDUAL NOTES

Head Coach Mike Tomlin
• Looks to improve to 7-2 against Cincinnati, including 4-1 at PaulBrown Stadium.
• Will look to improve to 50-24 overall and 22-15 on the road duringthe regular season.
• Looks to become the fourth head coach in Steelers history toreach 50 regular season wins (Chuck Noll-209, Bill Cowher-161,Raymond Parker-51). The Steelers will join the Giants (six), Packers(six), 49ers (four) and Colts (four) as the only franchises with atleast four head coaches to win at least 50 regular-season games.

QB Ben Roethlisberger
• Looks to become the first Steelers’ quarterback to throw for atleast 300 yards in four consecutive games. Would mark the 20th300-yard passing performance of Roethlisberger’s career.
• Will look to record his 18th consecutive game with at least 200yards passing.
• Looks for fourth 100.0 rating of the season and 45th of his career.
• Will look to improve to 76-32 as a starter.
• Looks to improve to 30-9 versus AFC North opponents.
• Looks to improve to 7-1 at Paul Brown Stadium and 11-4 overall against the Bengals during the regular season.

WR Hines Wardhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/hines-ward/8a520076-6343-42ce-a89f-28a7dc97c67a/)
• Needs 40 receiving yards to reach 12,000 for his career. He would be 19th player in NFL history to reach the mark and the first in Steelers’ history. Ward will become the third player in NFL history to reach 12,000 career receiving yards and win multiple Super Bowls (Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Art Monk).

TE Heath Millerhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/heath-miller/ada7ab1b-9acd-421a-bed0-79ccc4542630/)

• Needs eight receptions to tie Elbie Nickel (329) for the most receptions by a tight end in Steelers history.

WR Antonio Brownhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/antonio-brown/859114e9-d70b-477b-8eaf-6f34bb1ffc03/)
• Will look to record his third 100 yard receiving in the past four games and second in a row. Over the last three weeks Brown has totaled 278 receiving yards on 21 receptions with one touchdown.

RB Rashard Mendenhallhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/rashard-mendenhall/3e1ac879-3146-46f4-946b-216532a371b1/)
• Needs one rushing touchdown to tie Dick Hoak (25) for the seventh-most in team history.
• Is 31 yards away from passing Frenchy Fuqua (2,942) for the 12th most career rushing yards in franchise history.

WR Mike Wallacehttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/mike-wallace/304eecdf-1b60-4dc4-9cd8-7808d9f5c97a/)
• With 100 yards receiving will record his 13th 100-yard receiving game of his career and the fifth of this season.
• If Wallace records at least 100 yards receiving it will be his eighth 100 yard receiving game in the last 13 regular-season games.

SS Troy Polamaluhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/troy-polamalu/1b1010ec-73b6-414d-88ee-72dbd9b48597/)
• After returning a fumble 16 yards for the second fumble returned for a touchdown of his career vs. Indianapolis (Week 3), is one away from tying Jason Gildon (3) for the most fumbles returned for touchdowns in franchise history.
• Needs one touchdown to move into a tie for the second-most defensive touchdowns in Steelers history:
• One interception shy of tying Jack Lambert (28) for the ninth-most in Steelers’ history.
• Needs one interception return for a touchdown to tie Carnell Lake, Dwayne Woodruff, Deshea Townsend and Tony Campagno (3) for the third-most in franchise history.
• Needs 41 yards to surpass Chad Scott (368) for the ninth-most interception return yards in a career in Steelers’ history.

LB James Harrisonhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/james-harrison/f955db12-de79-47a3-9c61-d50c2583d49b/)
• After registering three sacks last week against Baltimore, looks to become the first Steeler and the 10th player in the NFL to record at least three sacks in back-to-back games since sacks became an official statistic in 1982. The last NFL player to register at least three sacks in consecutive games was Green Bay LB Clay Matthews in 2010.
• Looks to become the third Pittsburgh Steelers’ player to register at least three sacks multiple times in one season since 1982 (Chad Brown, 1996, 2; Mike Merriweather, 1984, 3).
• Looks to record fifth career regular-season game with at least three sacks to tie Joey Porter (5) for the most 3 sack games during the regular season by a Steelers’ player since 1982.

K Shaun Suishamhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/shaun-suisham/1375892d-6f3e-462a-b784-4c6cd6bce2b2/)

Where the hell was Troy on that Green TD?? He was right there and it looked like he was in a position where he could have jumped up and tried to defend the pass, and instead it looked like he just gave up and stood there...

fortmemphis

Absolutely amazing that Dalton can throw into our triple coverage and Green can make the catch and nobody even puts a hand up to try to knock it down. Clark just turns around and looks at Green. That was pathetic.

I think BAL showed everyone that if you can protect the QB, our DB's just flat cannot shut down any receivers. Boldin ate them alive last week. Green most likely will today if he isnt hurt too bad.

Hold on a minute. Green is very good and just out jumped Clark. He's been doin it to DB's all year.

I guess it was too much to ask of Heath to catch a ball that was thrown right between the 8 and the 3. That is just not like him to blow that kind of catch.

Hold on a minute. Green is very good and just out jumped Clark. He's been doin it to DB's all year.

I agree Green is good. But if you look at the play again, Clark never jumped. He turned around and was facing Green. It is easy to out jump Clark when he doesnt even try.

Green is a great young talent. But the Steeler DB's are beatable. The 92 yard drive by BAL showed that..

I definitely agree, it didn't look like Troy or Clark really tried particularly hard to stop that catch, but, you have to give props to Green, he can get up and make the big play

And those "Bungles" haven't played us, the Ravens, or the Pats, so its inflation in my opinion

the bungles are not the same shitty team they were last year. and when we were up 14-0 the rout should have already been on. instead, it's 14-10 and a 1 possession game.

I hate that the pick is going to go against Ben (statistically). 9 times out of 10, Heath makes that catch cleanly and gets good yardage afterwards.

wish we could have a drive that mixes Mendy/Redman with Heath, Mike Wallace and Brown and take off about 8 or 9 mins on the clock.

The 5 wide, empty backfield slingin it all over the field just doesnt seem to work enough. We need to get some type of running game going just to keep them honest.

Our offensive line is really a weak link. I know injuries have played a part this year, but I would think that PIT's front office would address this in the off season. Ben is going to get hurt if they dont. Already 3 sacks and the first half isnt over yet.

shitty blocking, that should never happen with a 4 man rush

well if we can hold the 7 pt lead im satisfied with that. it doesnt take but 3 or 4 pass rushers to get to Ben against our O Line. It is so predictable.

Last week we could barely get close enough to Flacco to even breathe on him, but 3 guys can get to Ben a lot of the time.

The thing about Bruce Ariens is that he can call a great game for the first 20 minutes, and the he reverts back to lobbing bombs just about every play. He always seems to mix it up for a while, but then just goes back to his usual craptastic "take a shot" style offense. If we would stick to mixing it up, we would be a much better team.

I dont know about that. CIN is living in the backfield with Ben. He is making some plays on his own and has had a few plays where he had time, but CIN sacked him 3 times in the first half alone.

Our O Line simply is slow and can be beaten. Sometimes, CIN just sends 4 guys and they would get to Ben.

I remember when we actually had a defense that could shut teams with rookie QBs down and 17 pts would be more than enough to win.

Guess what. Cincinnati is an NFL team. They are going to get to the QB every once in awhile. Ben has had a pocket and had calmly stayed in it most of the day. One sack was because Ben fell down. He has thrown for 200 yards and has had three hurries. The offensive line sucks is cliche. When we are not moving the ball, it's always the offensive line.

Yep make it a two possession game. Put pressure on their offense.

Guys I enjoy when we run effectively but when we leave this line in the hole on 3rd and long it does not bode well for us.

I fully agree, but abandoning the running game entirely will get us nowhere as well

I guess Arians is listening. Run, run, then hope and punt.
