The focus will be on Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton in this game, understandably. Against the Steelers, Dalton has a completion percentage of 53 percent, with a 50 percent or worse completion percentage in three of his five games against them. Prime time, too, has not been kind to Dalton, with two wins and three losses in those five games, along with just three touchdowns to five interceptions.
