NFL picks Week 16: Bengals vs. Steelers

Andy Lyons

A win by the Bengals would give them a playoff berth.

It's as big a game as they come this weekend in Pittsburgh. The Cincinnati Bengals can clinch a playoff berth with a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. A loss by Mike Tomlin's crew would eliminate the Steelers from postseason contention.

While the Bengals have a better record, all six experts over at ESPN.com are going with the Steelers. That includes Seth Wickersham, who has the best overall record picking games on the site.

At CBSSports.com, the experts pick against the spread, and the Steelers are favored by 4.5 points. The consensus is an upset, though, as five of the eight experts are choosing Cincinnati. Will Brinson, who has the best record picking games on the site, chose Pittsburgh to cover.

And at Yahoo! Sports, two of the three experts are going with the Pittsburgh Steelers to keep their season alive.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET at Heinz Field on Sunday.
