The NFL schedule 2013 live stream and TV games bring a Monday Night Football matchup featuring division rivals. The Pittsburgh Steelers will visit the Cincinnati Bengals in the latest contest, with both teams realizing the importance of the win in terms of their playoff hopes towards the end of the season. Each team has started out as 0-1 on the season, and will look to even their record against a division foe. The latest NFL live streaming and televised MNF game will be presented via ESPN.
According to a Sept. 16 ESPN.com game preview, the Steelers will come into this game after losing three players last weekend in a disappointing loss against the Titans 16-9. Center Maurkice Puncey (ACL/MCL), linebacker Larry Foote (ruptured biceps) and LaRod Stephens-Howling (ACL) were all injured in that contest, adding to the Steelers' woes. The other issues came with regards to their offense which had just 195 yards total for the game against Tennessee. They'll certainly need to step that up against the Bengals on the road.
Coach Mike Tomlin said of the situation his team is in:
"We've got a lot of work to do. Nobody cares about our problems. They're glad we've got them. We need to understand that. We need to stick together and persevere."
For the Bengals, they can at least feel a bit better about their chances, although they'll need to play much better defense. In their opening contest they allowed the Bears to come back after Chicago was down double digits, blowing an 11-point lead. Also comforting to Cincinnati may be the fact that their division as a whole has started this 2013-14 season at 0-4. As of Monday Night, at least two teams will have a win, since the Baltimore Ravens (1-1) got their first win on Sunday.
The Bengals put up 21 points against the Chicago Bears in Chicago last weekend, with Andy Dalton achieving 282 yards passing and two touchdowns. Receiver A.J. Green racked up 162 yards and two touchdowns on 9 receptions. Cincinnati will look to continue their offensive onslaught, and based on the Steelers injury report as well as their lack of offense in the first game against Tennessee, it looks like Pittsburgh may be in trouble.
The Steelers. vs Bengals Monday Night Football game has a start time of 8:30 p.m. EST on Monday night. ESPN will carry the televised broadcast in standard and hi-definition to various cable or satellite providers around the nation. In addition, fans with WatchESPN access will be able to watch the game live streaming online with laptops, PC's and various mobile devices.
Which team will win this one tonight, the Bengals or Steelers? Will the losing team be able to make the playoffs still?
