Monday Night Football Week 2 Open Thread: Steelers at Bengals

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Join us on Monday Night as the Pittsburgh Steelers play the Packers' next opponent, the Cincinnati Bengals.

After all the NFL action yesterday, including the Packers' blowout win over the Redskins, let's all relax and scout our opponent for next week!

That's right, I'm talking about the Cincinnati Bengals, who will be taking on the Pittsburgh Steelers in an old-fashioned AFC North rivalry. Pittsburgh has historically been very good in Paul Brown Stadium, and they continued their winning ways in Cincinnati last year by defeating the Bengals 24-17. The Bengals would later take the second game in Pittsburgh, 13-10.

The Steelers are coming off a tough home loss to the Tennessee Titans, while the Bengals lost in sloppy fashion to the Bears in Chicago, 24-21. With the whole AFC North up for grabs this year, the winner of this game will be tied with the Ravens for first in the division at 1-1 as well as matching Baltimore's 1-0 division mark.

This game will give us a prime-time look at the Packers' week 3 opponent, as they will travel to Cincinnati on Sunday.

7:40 PM Central Daylight Time

Paul Brown Stadium, Cincinnati, Ohio
