The Bengals and the Steelers are set to clash in an AFC North battle that will have playoff implications.
Rookie quarterback Andy Dalton has played well enough to get the Cincinnati Bengals in position to be competing for the AFC North division title. Dalton will lead his team into Heinz field with the second match up of the season with the PIttsburgh Steelers. Just three weeks ago, the Bengals fell to the Steelers 24-17 with a late interception by Dalton. The second go around, the rookie will look to put his team in position to win the divis ion and make his mark as a possible rookie of the year candidate.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are coming off a game that was closer than it should have been against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Steelers defense was able to force multiple turnovers, but the Steelers struggled to put points on the scoreboard. The Steelers escaped with a victory against the Bengals in their first match up, but potentially being without star safety Troy Polamalu and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger struggling against the Chiefs defense on Sunday Night, the Steelers will look to not stumble in the AFC North race.
Game Date/Time: Sunday, December 4; 1:00pm ET
