Cincinnati Bengals Must Exploit Pittsburgh Steelers With Mohamed Sanu

Mohamed Sanu

Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports

He’s not A.J. Green, but Mohamed Sanu is rather talented and is also the type of wide receiver that needs to be on top of his game if the Cincinnati Bengals hope to win the AFC North in 2013. With a ton of off-season cash spent on the defensive side of the ball, the Bengals are relying on Sanu to be a play maker in just his second NFL season. Sanu wasn’t exactly a highly-touted prospect coming out of Rutgers University, but Cincinnati made the right move by using a third-round selection on Sanu in last year’s draft.

However, the Bengals were somewhat disappointed in Sanu’s 2012 campaign as he finished the season with only 154 yards receiving.  To be fair, Sanu did only suit up for eight games as a rookie, so you had to be impressed with him reaching the end-zone four times in just three starts.

Playing alongside Green is the envy of any young wide receiver, and the heavier Sano — 211 lbs. — has the size and skill to be Andy Dalton‘s red-zone target for years to come. With that being said, Cincinnati has a pair of tight ends, who have both excelled in the early going. If Sanu can emerge as Dalton’s number two wide out then the Bengals should have no problem cruising through a depleted AFC North division.

Bengals' Burfict Has Experience With Illegal Plays

Everyone wants to say that Vontaze Burfict's actions were reactionary to the Steelers from earlier in the game. Take a look at this video from last week against the Ravens, and also last year against the Panthers when he wrenched Greg Olsen's ankle following a play, and you'll realize this guy's nothing but a punk.
