The Pittsburgh Steelers take a trip to Paycor Stadium to kick off the 2022 NFL Season on opening day against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Steelers have the weapons now to keep up if this gets into any sort of a shootout, though we can’t forget that they managed only ten points in both games against Cincinnati last year.
The offensive line is still a major question mark for the Steelers, and everyone will keep dogging Mitchell Trubisky until Kenny Pickett is ready, but Najee Harris is a special running back, the receiving corps is loaded with young talent, and the potential is there to keep up once the Cincinnati machine gets going.
The Bengals have upgraded in several areas, but can they slow down the better passing teams? Trubisky isn’t exactly Tom Brady, but he might go off on a secondary that has to prove it can hold up a bit better.
But the more intriguing and the showdown with maybe the bigger impact finds the rookie Volson making his NFL debut against Steleers’ Heyward, the future Pro Football Hall-of-Famer who has the most tackles and passes defended by an NFL tackle in the last four seasons.
A graduate of North Dakota’s nine-man high school football league in a county with a population slightly more than the 3,500-seat capacity of Joe Burrow Stadium in Athens, Ohio, Volson could end up playing before the most fans ever to watch a football game in Cincinnati on Sunday.
And if Heyward isn’t enough, there’s also Ogunjobi on some passing downs. Larry O. as he’s known around these parts is making his first start for the Steelers on the same field he broke his foot in the last game of last year here at Paycor in the Wild Card, ending his lone season with the Bengals with seven monstrous sacks.
