Bengals all of a sudden have a pass rush
Week 3: Pittsburgh (1-1) @ Cincinnati (1-1) 4:15 p.m.
Coming into the season, one area where the Cincinnati Bengals were expected to be much better was on defense.
Healthy for the first time since 2007, defensive end Antwan Odom is helping the Bengals backup that notion.
Odom, 28, a 6th year defensive end has been a force at defensive end setting an NFL record with 7 sacks in two games.
After recording 8 sacks in the 2007 season with the Tennessee Titans, Odom signed the richest free agent contract for a defensive player in Bengals history.
After suffering a broken foot and a torn right shoulder, 2008 was a lost year for Odom.
He has come back with a vengence in 2009.
Odom versus Pittsburgh Steelers left tackle Max Starks will be a key matchup to watch Sunday afternoon.
The Bengals lead the league with 9 sacks and also have a league high four sacks combined on first and second down.
But, seven of those sacks have came from one player.
