The National Football League Monday Night Football event between AFC North foes Pittsburgh and Cincinnati concludes Week #13 of the 2017 NFL season. This divisional showdown offers a plethora of subplots. Monday Night Football Game Props: Steelers -4 over Bengals.
Not only is there bad blood between these two AFC North rivals on the field the same goes for the fan base off the gridiron. Roughly one year ago a brawl found six NFL fans facing charges after a fight following the highly emotional Wild Card playoff game at Paul Brown Stadium.
On the field fighting is likely to happen tonight at Paul Brown as it always has. Wide receiver Antonio Browns is questionable for tonight’s game but if he dresses and plays count on a skirmish with the All-Pro receiving becoming a reality.
While the player and coach-speak between these two longtime NFL franchises is politically correct the two team’s simply don’t like each other.
Of the six men accused of brawling during last year’s Wild Card contest, half were Bengals fans, the other three Steelers fans. The mug shots that were published of the half dozen revealed such.
Tonight’s contest final won’t be short of playoff implications. The Bengals (5-6) are fighting for a Wild Card spot, while the Steelers (9-2) need a win to keep pace with the conference-leading 10-2 Patriots.
Pittsburgh’s injured wide receiver Antonio Brown made the team trip to Cincinnati in advance of Monday night’s game against the Bengals. However after missing practice this week Brown’s status for the AFC North battle is “game-time”.
