Crucial game for the Bengals if they're going to challenge for a Wild Card. Joe Mixon had something of a breakout game last week, but AJ Green will be the key to their chances against a vulnerable Steelers' secondary.

Pittsburgh have played much better at home than on the road this season, but they should have too much firepower for the Bengals to handle...

Bengals 17 Steelers 30

fancy the Bengals to spring an upset.the Steelers are a totally different team on the road and the Bengals are still hanging around the wildcard race.

A Brown seems to be managing a toe injury that has kept him out of Fridays practice.

Although we've had an upturn in performances recently, the Steelers are just too good right now. Our line finally remembered how to Pass and Run block last week against the Browns, which is a positive sign and Daltons last INT was against the Steelers earlier on in the season, longest streak of passes thrown without an INT active in the league.

If the D can get the pressure on Big Ben and force some errors and we get Mixon and the run game going we might have a chance, but in all honesty we've been poor this year and I expect the Steelers to take this one.

Beautiful start to the game by our D, pressure up the middle early is very nice to see.

This looks serious for Shazier, seems to look like he compressed his neck on the tackle maybe?

Sounds like a potentially very serious situation with Ryan Shazier. Hate to see that.

Awful injury, Never like to see people injured. Still no update on him either which is worrying.

Now Mixon is down injured after a collision to his head.

Where was this O-Line play at the start of the season! They look like a completely different unit!

Apart from the implosion at the end (Only we could let them drive from the 15 with 21 seconds left) that was a perfect half. Gio is back to full fitness and got confidence in his knee again, the O looked amazing. Dalton looked great, the blocking was great.

D were playing well but fell asleep at the end of the half, but if you'd have said to me we'd be leading 17-3 going into the half against the Steelers, i'd have snapped that up. Just got to keep running that ball and playing smart football to get to 6-6.

Thoughts go out to Shazier though, like said before, that injury looked nasty.

Well we've gone backwards in this half a little bit, the penalties are ridiculous, franchise record..

Smith-Schuster with the absolutely horrific tackle on Burfict. Sure most people would say Burficts done it in the past.. but that's headhunting and to follow it up with a taunt is classless.
