The Cincinnati Bengals used overtime and won a thriller in Week 1. Week 2 was not as kind, as the Bengals offense had a hard time moving the ball on Chicago’s defense. Joe Burrow has thrown four touchdowns, and three interceptions through two games so far this season.
His top target has been Tee Higgins. Higgins has caught 10 passes for 118 yards and two touchdowns through the first two games. Joe Mixon leads the ground attack. Mixon is averaging just shy of 100 yards per game, and has gotten into the end zone once this season.
For Pittsburgh, Najee Harris has gotten off to a slow start to his career. Harris’ arrival meant the end of James Conner in Pittsburgh, but through two games, Harris has just 83 yards. The Steelrs struggled moving the ball in the loss to the Raiders, and eventually threw the football 40 times.
Dionte Johnson had a big game for the Steelers, with over 100 yards receiving, but no touchdowns. JuJu Smith-Schuster got into the endzone in the game, albeit on the ground. Pittsburgh is averaging just 57 rushing yards per game, which is 31st out of 32 teams in the league.
