Several Steelers have ties to the Bengals and the Cincinnati area. Steelers with connections to the Bengals include head coach Mike Tomlin, who spent two seasons as the defensive backs coach at the University of Cincinnati. Defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau, who was an assistant coach with the Bengals from 1980-91 and 1997-00 and was the team’s head coach from 2000-02. Defensive backs coach Ray Horton played for the Bengals from 1983-88 and coached with Cincinnati from 1997-01. Assistant special teams coach Amos Jones coached at University of Cincinnati (1999-2002).

There are a number of Bengals who have direct connections to the Steelers and the Pittsburgh area, including Head Coach Marvin Lewis, who is from McDonald, Pa., and was the Steelers linebackers coach from 1992-95. Lewis also coached at Pitt from 1990-91. Defensive line coach Jay Hayes, who is from South Fayette, Pa., was the Steelers’ special teams coach from 1999-01. Tight ends coach Jonathan Hayes, Jay’s younger brother, played tight end with the Steelers from 1994-96. Offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski was the Steelers’ wide receivers coach from 1999-2000.

What To Look For
PITTSBURGH TEAM NOTES

• The Steelers look to improve to 49-32 all-time in the regular season against the Bengals.
• The Steelers look to improve to 4-1 against AFC North opponents this year.
• The Steelers look improve to 27-14 all-time in the regular season at home in the series history.
PITTSBURGH INDIVIDUAL NOTES

RB Rashard Mendenhall
• Needs 102 yards rushing to surpass his career high for rushing yards in a season. He currently has 1,007 rushing yards after posting 1,108 rushing yards in 2009.

WR Mike Wallace
• Needs 132 yards receiving to post his first career 1,000-yard season. He has already surpassed last season’s total of 756 receiving yards as he now has 868 yards in 2010.
• Needs five receiving touchdowns to break the team’s single-season record, which is 12 held by Hines Ward (2002), Louis Lipps (1985) and Buddy Dial (1961).

LB James Harrison
• Needs 1.5 sacks to reach 50 for his career and become just the seventh player in team history to total at least 50 career sacks.
• Needs one forced fumble to match his career high of seven and to tie the team record for forced fumbles in a season, which he currently shares with Greg Lloyd (1994). Harrison had seven in 2008 and has forced six in 2010.

You're not kidding. It's being shown here in NYC on free TV - I won't have to endure a crappy streaming version.

Now if only the Steelers can go out and destroy Carson and the Bungles, I'd be very happy man on this otherwise dismal-looking day. I still remember the game where Carson was in the tunnel with his teammates and said "Let's put a hurtin' on the Steel Curtain" - I think that was the playoff game where he got his knee hurt and was out the rest of the game (Kitna took over for him). Karma. And of course, who can forget when TJ was with the Bungles and used The Terrible Towel to clean his shoes? I have no sympathy for the Bungles in their current plight - Steelers need to destroy this team. Kick them when they're down. Steelers 45 Bungles 3 would be a nice score.

This must be a statement game for us. We need to go in and go hard. Completely maul the kitty cats and come out big. Then we can regard ourselves as a Superbowl team.
