Steelers vs. Bengals Open Thread

A battle for AFC North supremacy to close the regular season.

Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports
Sunday Night Football, week 17. This is it, the end of the line for teams not in the playoffs. Seems like only yesterday the season began with high hopes. This season closing game is a good one. The Cincinnati Bengals visit the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsyvania. These two teams are both playoff bound, with only seeding at stake. The winner of this game wins the rugged AFC North division and gets at least one playoff home game. The loser goes on the road for the playoffs and plays in the Wild Card round. The Bengals are coming off a huge and emotional win against the Broncos, while the Steelers come into the game winners of three straight. This game shapes up as a potentially classic, smashmouth, hard hitting no holds barred AFC North struggle. Enjoy the game everybody. Discuss the game here.
