NFL Week 2 preview: Steelers vs. Bengals

The AFC North rivalry is a Monday night matchup that will test the Steelers' ability to bounce back from the devastating injuries of Week 1.

Last week couldn't have gone any worse for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Not only did they look utterly flat in a 16-9 loss to the Titans, but they saw center Maurkice Pouncey, halfback LaRod Stephens-Howling and linebacker Larry Foote go down with season-ending injuries. Now they'll face a tough Cincinnati Bengals defense still smarting from last week's loss to the Bears. With all four AFC North teams currently winless, something has to give on Monday night.
