The Bengals and Steelers face off as they vie for a playoff spot in the AFC.
The Cincinnati Bengals visit the Pittsburgh Steelers with a chance to clinch a playoff berth and eliminate their opponent with a victory at Heinz Field in Week 16. The Bengals are one game ahead of the Steelers for the final playoff spot in the AFC. Pittsburgh would possess the head-to-head tiebreaker should it win on Sunday.
Getting back to the playoffs seemed to be a tough task for the Bengals prior to the season, as the Steelers and Ravens were both predicted to be among the AFC's best. Now, Cincinnati has a chance to win the division with a little help from the Giants, who visit Baltimore this week. If the Ravens and Bengals should be tied at the end of Sunday, then a Week 17 matchup at Paul Brown Stadium would decide the AFC North.
The Steelers also still have a chance to win the division at 9-7, should they win out and the Ravens lose out. They will be completely out of the hunt if they lose to the Bengals.
