The Bengals have a star-crossed recent postseason history. In many ways that began in a game ten years ago. The tenth anniversary was actually yesterday. It was another first round home Playoff game against the Steelers. On his first pass of the game, Carson Palmer hit Chris Henry for a 66 yard gain, but he also took a hit that tore his ACL. The Steelers won. The Bengals still have not won a postseason game since.

I am picking Pittsburgh to win this game also. It is all about the quarterbacks. If Andy Dalton was in the lineup, I would like the Bengals. I don't think A.J. McCarron is ready to match touchdowns with Ben Roethlisberger. The Bengals do have a good pass defense. I also am a bit worried as the Steelers did not finish the season strongly. They lost to Baltimore in Week 16 and looked unconvincing in beating the Browns last week. Still, the quarterback matchup sticks out.

Make your pick and talk about the game below. This will become the game thread.
