You may recall the old "In the Hunt" futility statistic. To be in the hunt, a team must be no more than one game under .500 and cannot have as many as eight losses. The assumption is that a winning record generally gets a team in the playoffs, and we know that that isn't always true. So it's a generous estimate.

With the Bungs starting out with three straight losses against Baltimore, Houston, and Green Bay, they looked to be headed for one of those seasons where they are never in the hunt. Then lo and behold, they won their next two against Buffalo and Cleveland.

So now the Bungs are 2-3 and playing the 4-2 Stoolers at Pittsburgh. A win keeps them in the hunt for another couple of week while a loss likely drops them out of it for perhaps the rest of the season. On the other hand, we might be on the edge of one of those seasons where the Bungs are frequently threatening to get back into the playoff race, but never quite getting there except for an odd week or two. In other words, a paradise for the sheep.

I suspect they lose a close one here in a nationally televised game to tease the faithful.

They went for it on 4th down, and they made it! This must be Lazor's influence. Marvin usually would have kicked the FG.

Where's ol' Murf? Marvin was aggressive on that 4th and goal play.

Second penalty by the Bengals on this drive.

Don't see why you would run it there.

Bengals held them to 3 but then got the ball and could do nothing. Hopefully, they can prevent another 3 before halftime.

Stupid penalty. Ball wouldn't have been caught.

First the Bengals have 12 men on the field, and now we have PI which puts the Stealers at first and goal. Remember when I said I hope they keep them from scoring 3? Three will be a blessing.

Stealers go in up by 6. If they score after halftime and the Bengals don't, I see it slipping away.

Bungs caught a break. Steelers forgot to call timeout early enough so that means instead of going for a TD they had to settle for the FG.
