Hey Yinz Guys: 

That is what a complete game looks like!  Maybe the Steelers thought the first four games were preseason games?  Who knows, but the Stillers picked a great time for a near flawless performance.  Now, it gets even more serious as the Black and Gold go back on the road in a key divisional game and we need you here…

The Steelers travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bungles in a key AFC North showdown.  The Bungles are playing like a team that is for real. They are coming off a 27-17 win over the Dolphins where the Bungles scored the last 27 points of the game to take their record to 4-1.  The Bungles are led by…well nobody really; however, they still have one of the most despised players in sports, Vontaze Burfict, so there is that.

Meanwhile, the good guys are fresh from a 41-17 thrashing of the Falcons where everything pretty much went right.  The offense and defense both scored touchdowns and the special teams were hot as well, blocking a punt along the way.   How solid was the defense? All-world Julio Jones did not catch a pass until the fourth quarter.

The Steelers and Bungles are two teams who do not like each other.  Heck, the fans do not like each other (except we like Michele the bartender, even though she is a Bungles fan).   So, come on out and cheer your Steelers to victory!
