Bengals’ Trickery, Preparation Will Give Steelers Fits Sunday

Mike Tomlin does like to make every team he previews in his weekly Tuesday press conference sound like the 1927 New York Yankees. But something he said when talking about the Cincinnati Bengals caught my ear. “They do a great job schematically of presenting some packages of the week to…
