Monday Night Football Thread: Who will get their first victory?

Loser has to play the 49ers backups

A pair of winless teams play tonight as the Steelers host the Bengals in an AFC North matchup. Listening to podcasts, it’s fun to hear other analysts mention how both teams have played tough schedules, and cite the 49ers as a big reason why both of these offenses have struggled early in the season.

As crazy as it sounds, the winner of this game isn’t out of it for the division. The leader is 2-2, and a win here will put you only one game back of the Browns and the Ravens. I don’t think I can watch another game of the fighting Mason Rudolph’s against the flying Andy Dalton’s. Not with both of those teams. It should be a high scoring game, and hopefully, it brings some highlights.

There are plenty of talented players in this one on both sides of the ball. Joe Mixon going up against Devin Bush. Minkah Fitzpatrick facing Tyler Boyd and Tyler Eifert. The total on this game is 45, and the Steelers are three-point favorites.

Who do you think wins?
