Default Steelers week begins (for the Bungles)

Steelers week begins
4:04 pm, Nov 7, 2011 | Written by jreedy | Comments |

Domata Peko on Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers: “We hate them and they hate us."

Marvin Lewis gave the players the day off following Sunday’s 24-17 win over Tennessee, but a lot of the Bengals were still in the locker room getting a jump on film study in preparation for this week’s game against the Steelers.

Defensive tackle Domata Peko summed up the upcoming week, like this: “We hate them and they hate us. Everywhere I go even the chefs in the restaurants are like ‘just beat Pittsburgh.’ It’s just that rivalry. Nothing like going up against your rival and getting at it.”

The Bengals also find themselves in unfamiliar territory as they are tied with the Ravens for best record in the conference at 6-2. If the playoffs began today though, the Bengals would be the top seed based on a better record against common opponents. Pittsburgh is a half-game back at 6-3. However the Steelers would still qualify as the final wild card.

While many are trying to figure out how many wins it might take for the Bengals to make the playoffs, that is the least of the player’s concerns.

“You feel good that you’ve done something to earn yourself an opportunity to make the playoffs. But like I said, every game from here on out counts,” offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth said. “It’s nothing to pat yourself on the back about. It’s more about being proud of what you did, but moving on and realizing, ‘Man, if I keep putting in the work, keep executing and we keep playing as a team, we have a chance to reach some goals we have.’ If we continue to do those things, we’ll reach ‘em.”

In injury news, head coach Marvin Lewis said that linebacker Rey Maualuga (ankle), cornerback Adam Jones (hamstring) and tight end Jermaine Gresham (hamstring) are expected to return to practice on Wednesday. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap (hamstring) said that he was feeling better but still might be day-to-day.

I just looked at Ben's record.against them, damn, he owns them too. It is a rivalry, but I don't think it has the feeling of Steelers-Ravens or even Steelers-Pats. Either way, if we don't win the Steelers may end up watching the playoffs on a couch.
