while he grew up in Clairton Womens Jordan Evans Jersey , Pennsylvania. He loved how No. 86 made the tough catches in the biggest games and helped Pittsburgh win two Super Bowls during his 14 seasons."He was my guy," the Bengals receiver said. "Everything about him was good. He was quick, aggressive, he was smart, just a guy that everyone looked up to in the Pittsburgh area."Boyd got to know the Steelers when he went to Pitt, which shares Heinz Field with the Steelers. Instead of being drafted by them in 2016, he wound up going to the rival Cincinnati Bengals, who were looking for a slot receiver to complement A.J. Green.Boyd immediately redirected his goal toward beating his beloved black-and-gold team. So far, he's 0-for-4.The Bengals (4-1) have dropped six straight to the Steelers (2-2-1), a streak that's the talk of the town as Pittsburgh arrives for a game Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium. Boyd has played in three of the games. All three times, he has walked off the field watching thousands of Steelers fans twirl their Terrible Towels — a scene he once enjoyed."I haven't beaten them once http://www.bengalscheapstore.com/shawn-williams-jersey-cheap , so that would mean everything to me," Boyd said. "Just with all my friends and family and fans coming to watch, I can start bragging a little and talk a little noise and stuff."So far, there's been little to talk about.Boyd had his best game against the Steelers as a rookie. He caught six passes for 78 yards in the second game of the season, a 24-16 loss in his return to Heinz Field. He also had a decisive fumble. He caught a pass at the Pittsburgh 33-yard line and was stripped by James Harrison. Pittsburgh recovered with 1:50 left, ending the Bengals' comeback attempt.Boyd had two catches for 13 yards in the rematch at Paul Brown Stadium, a 24-20 Steelers win .Last year, Boyd suffered a knee injury and missed a 29-14 loss at Pittsburgh . He had two catches for 15 yards in a 23-20 loss to the Steelers at Paul Brown Stadium. Thousands of Steelers fans twirled their towels as Pittsburgh ran off the field after Chris Boswell kicked a 38-yard field goal on the final play.The scene was familiar to Boyd, who attended a handful of Steelers games as a youth."They were all loud and crazy, so I'm expecting that," Boyd said. "But a lot of games get like that at some point in the game. I think we'll do a better job of keeping them quiet this game."The Bengals are counting on significant contributions from Boyd Youth Ryan Glasgow Jersey , who is having his best season. He leads the team with 30 catches — Green is second with 26.Boyd knows many of the Steelers from his playing days at Pitt, when they used the same stadium."When we were at practice, me and James (Conner) always talked to (Mike) Tomlin and Le'Veon (Bell) and AB (Antonio Brown)," Boyd said. "I would ask AB how he would work a route in certain coverage, just little things like that."I had a good relationship with those guys when I was at Pitt. It's fun to play against them now."NOTES: Running back Giovani Bernard was ruled out Friday with a knee injury, the second game in a row he'll miss. ... Tight end Tyler Kroft also is out with a foot injury. ... Center Billy Price will miss his fourth game with a partially torn ligament in his right foot. ... Cornerback William Jackson (knee), receiver John Ross (groin) and offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi (wrist) are listed as questionable. Tyler Boyd watched some of the Bengals' worst moments from the sideline, unable to contribute to the NFL's least-effective offense. The receiver turned those moments into something better when he got another chance.Boyd finished last season with a big game and carried it over, emerging as Andy Dalton's top target in a reconstituted offense. He leads the team in catches and yards as the Bengals (3-1) host the Miami Dolphins (3-1) on Sunday.The third-year receiver from Pitt also has come up with some of their most clutch plays. He had a third-down catch and a pair of fourth-down catches during a winning 16-play drive Sunday in Atlanta, which culminated in A.J. Green's touchdown catch with 7 seconds left.He's been the biggest surprise so far in an offense that's exceeding expectations."He's a guy who's playing with a ton of confidence," quarterback Andy Dalton said . "He's just playing at a high level now."A year ago Cheap Jessie Bates III Jersey , he was at a low point.The Bengals drafted Boyd in the second round in 2016 because of his versatility at Pitt, where he lined up at various positions, ran the ball and even passed on occasion. They moved the 6-foot-2, 203-pound receiver into the slot and saw flashes of possibility. He finished his rookie season with 54 catches for 603 yards and a touchdown.He struggled the next season along with the rest of the offense. He missed four games with a knee injury and was inactive two other times. He had no more than two catches in any game until the last two."It was definitely a roller-coaster ride for me, ups and downs the whole way," Boyd said. "Especially when I got hurt, it kind of went down from there."Coach Marvin Lewis thinks his time watching from the sideline changed him."Then when he got an opportunity to suit up again, I thought he practiced differently," Lewis said. "A part of coming back is going out there on the practice field and showing, 'I am healthy and ready to go.' I thought he did those things and used it as a catalyst."Boyd had a 49-yard touchdown catch with 44 seconds left in a game in Baltimore that got the Bengals a season-ending win and knocked the Ravens out of the playoffs. He impressed during training camp and has grown into a reliable receiver on the most pressure-packed plays.His finest game was Sunday in Atlanta, where he had a career-high 11 catches for 100 yards. He had a third-down reception and a pair of fourth-down catches during Cincinnati's winning drive. Boyd had a total of four catches for 38 yards on the drive Youth William Jackson Jersey , beating man-to-man coverage on slant routes as the Falcons focused on Green."My quarterback, I want to show him how reliable I am to let him know he can trust me," Boyd said. "So I want to continue every time they're in man coverage, we're in a tight down and need a first down, he can rely on me."Boyd leads the team with 26 catches — four more than his total last season — for 349 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The only thing he hasn't gotten to do is throw the ball, something he did at Pitt. The Bengals have a play for him to pass, but haven't called it yet."I'm a guy that can do a lot of things: I can throw, I can line up in the backfield, you can place me all over the place," he said. "I think I'm ready for it — always ready for it — but I'm just anxious to see when they put it in."GIO OUT AGAINRunning back Giovani Bernard was held out of practice for a second straight day with a knee injury. Running back Joe Mixon had a second straight limited practice. Mixon missed the past two games following arthroscopic surgery to remove a piece of cartilage from his knee and is hoping to be ready for the Dolphins.Receiver John Ross also was held out of practice with a strained groin — he had been limited a day earlier. Defensive end Carl Lawson (ankle) and linebacker Michael Johnson (knee) also were limited on Thursday. Linebacker Preston Brown (shoulder) and offensive guard Alex Redmond (shoulder) fully practiced.
