CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

Many Bengals fans consider the Pittsburgh Steelers to be their greatest rival. The Steelers hold a 27-9 record against Cincinnati since 2000.

As fans get excited for the highly anticipated, physical game, Bengals players get geared up in the Paul Brown Stadium locker room during this week’s press conference.

FOX19 Now's Jeremy Rauch asked George Iloka, Bengals’ safety, “Is this the kind of game where it’s like a brother you know well or a friend that just kind of gets on your nerves where you guys see each other and it’s like ‘Man, these dudes are still them dudes.’ Is that kind of how it feels when you get out there?”

Iloka answered, “No, they’re not brothers. It’s the cousins that your parents invite over that you’re not really cool with. That’s what that is. You’ve got to deal with it. You know, they’re there for Thanksgiving dinner and whatnot and you’re like, ‘Man, why’d y’all invite them this year?’ type of thing but it is what it is.”

Come Sunday, either the Bengals or the Steelers will break the longer side of the wishbone at their version of Thanksgiving.
