In a rivalry that routinely goes to Pittsburgh, the Bengals have emerged 3-0 over the last three, running up a stunning 92-37 point differential in the process.
“Beating these guys for me twice and some of these other guys three times, it’s a big changing of the guard in our opinion. It gives us a lot of confidence and guys are excited to see how the season plays out.”
