Bengals vs. Steelers Monday Night Football open thread

Frank Victores-US PRESSWIRE

Bills fans do a little advance scouting, with Buffalo taking on tonight's Monday Night Football participants, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh, within the next eight weeks.

Later this season, the 1-1 Buffalo Bills will play both of tonight's Monday Night Football participants. If you're into super-in-advance scouting (or just, you know, watching football), this is your thread to discuss tonight's game between two AFC North powers.

Buffalo takes on the Cincinnati Bengals at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Week 6, who tonight host the Pittsburgh Steelers, Buffalo's Week 10 opponent. Cincinnati and Pittsburgh split two games between them a year ago, with the Bengals sneaking past the Steelers in the standings to make the post-season a year after following Pittsburgh in as the divisional runner-up. (Note: Cincinnati was also the divisional runner-up last year, leapfrogged by eventual Super Bowl champion Baltimore.)

In fact, once the Bills get past next weekend's game in the Meadowlands, they'll play three straight against AFC North opponents: Baltimore in Week 4, Cleveland in Week 5 and Cincinnati in Week 6.

If you've never seen elite players like A.J. Green and Geno Atkins play NFL ball, tonight's the night. If you're simply into enjoying blue-collar football between two tough football teams, you'll want to fire up ESPN right now. Enjoy the game, folks!
