Pittsburgh was beaten and bruised in a blowout loss to Jacksonville.
And the Bengals’ Vontaze Burfict is happy to hear it.
Burfict, who has a spotty past against the Steelers, was glad to be informed they lost Sunday. The Bengals won 20-16, putting them just one game out of first place after starting 0-3.
Making matters even better, the Bengals have a bye before getting their swing at the Steelers. Pittsburgh travels to Arrowhead Stadium to face the undefeated Chiefs next week. A loss gives the Bengals a chance to secure first place in two weeks.
