What to Know

It was all tied up at the half for Pittsburgh and Cincinnati two weeks ago, but Pittsburgh stepped up in the second half. Pittsburgh walked away with a 28-21 victory over Cincinnati. Among those leading the charge for Pittsburgh was James Conner, who rushed for 111 yards and 2 touchdowns on 19 carries.

Meanwhile, Cleveland fought the good fight in their overtime match last Sunday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result. It was close but no cigar for Cleveland as they fell 23-26 to Tampa Bay.

Pittsburgh's win lifted them to 3-2-2 while Cleveland's loss dropped them down to 2-4-2. Pittsburgh's offensive line will need to gear up for a tough test against a Cleveland defensive front that amassed six sacks against Tampa Bay, so we'll see if they are up to the task.
