The Cincinnati Bengals, the reigning AFC and AFC North champions, start the season against one of their most heated rivals: the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Bengals have beaten the Steelers twice in 2021, but this will start a new era in Steelers football. Ben Roethlisberger retired in the offseason and the Steelers are replacing him with former No. 2 overall pick Mitch Trubisky, who played for the Buffalo Bills last season after starting his career with the Chicago Bears.

Meanwhile, the Bengals have one of the most established positions in football at quarterback with starter Joe Burrow, the former No. 1 overall pick who led the Bengals to the Super Bowl in February. Burrow is playing his first game after an appendectomy that forced him to miss most of training camp.
Burrow, the most sacked quarterback in the league, will play his first game with an offensive line that has four new starters this season. And they will be needed as they play a Steelers defense led by 2021 Defensive Player of the Year TJ Watt.
