The Steelers Have Simply Dominated The Bengals

Steelers 18-7 vs Bengals since 2001Monday night, the Cincinnati Bengals host their AFC North Division rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers. Both teams are coming off losses in Week 1, where the Steelers also lost center Maurkice Pouncey for the season with a torn ACL and MCL.

Over the years, the Steelers have pretty much had their way with the Bengals, going 18-7 since 2001, while winning 10 of their last 14 meetings overall and 11 of their last 13 in Cincinnati (includes postseason).

To their credit, the Bengals beat the Steelers late last year and at this point, it can be argued that the Steelers have gotten old, while the younger Bengals suddenly appear to be the more talented team.

The Steelers are looking to avoid their first 0-2 start since 2002, with the Bengals seeking their first home win over the Steelers since 2009.
