There might not be a bigger hard hitting rivalry left in the NFL than the Bengals and Steelers.  Expect a lot of hitting in this game and a lot of trash talk.

On the very first drive of the game Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger and Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict had to be separated.  No punches were thrown, but there’s plenty of time for that.

There will be plenty more of these kinds of “conversations” throughout this game.  Conversations and hitting.
