Steelers Open as 5-Point Favorites Over Bengals



The Pittsburgh Steelers have opened as five-point favorites over the Cincinnati Bengals, who they will welcome to Heinz Field next Sunday.

Pittsburgh is coming off a disappointing 26-17 at the hands of the Las Vegas Raiders in their home opener.

The Bengals also fell in Week 2, dropping road contest 20-17 at Chicago on Sunday.

After an impressive return from injury in Cincinnati’s season opener, second-year quarterback Joe Burrow struggled in the loss throwing three interceptions on three-straight plays.

He did manage to toss two touchdowns, including one to rookie wideout Jamar Chase for the second consecutive game.

Cincinnati’s defense does look to be improved from a season ago, as they picked off a pass and recorded three sacks in Chicago.

They were able to hold Minnesota running back Dalvin Cook to just 61 rushing yards in Week 1.
