Steelers vs. Bengals: Game time, TV schedule, odds and more

Joe Robbins

Recent years have seen the Pittsburgh Steelers run over the Cincinnati Bengals, but that may change when Pittsburgh's injury-plagued team visits Paul Brown Stadium.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals will play out another chapter in their AFC North rivalry on Sunday night, as the 3-3 Bengals host the 2-3 Steelers.

The Steelers have had a disappointing start to their season, one caused in part by injuries to several key playmakers. Troy Polamalu will likely miss Sunday's game with a calf injury. Linebacker Chris Carter (hamstring) and right tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle) are also likely to be out. Running back Rashard Mendenhall and Issac Redman are both questionable.

Cincinnati, having lost two in a row, will look to turn things around against Pittsburgh. Andy Dalton will be key. He had three touchdowns and a career-high 381 yards against the Cleveland Browns in Week 6, but his three interceptions likely made the difference in the 34-24 loss.

The Steelers have won four straight against the Bengals, and 10 of their last 11 in Cincinnati. The banged up Steelers squad they see on Sunday is likely their best chance to go against recent history.

Game Time: 8:20 p.m. ET
Television Coverage: NBC
Odds: Pittsburgh is favored by one point
