448 yards and 3 touchdowns against the Saints in Week 1, Ryan faces a tougher Bengals defense in Week 2. He is still a steady QB1 though, especially with a healthy WR duo of Roddy White and Julio Jones.
Big Ben had a solid week against the Browns to start the season. It is evident that the Steelers will continue to be a pass-first offense. Look for tons of yardage and depending on who he connects with, 2-3 touchdowndowns as well.

Ryan was extraordinary at home last week, but he faces a tough task on the road playing the Cincinnati secondary.
