For the second week in a row, we get to watch an AFC North matchup on Monday Night Football, and in Week 15, we get the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-2) on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals (2-10-1).
This could be just the matchup the Steelers need to rejuvenate what was once a very-winning season following their consecutive losses these past two weeks. However, regardless of how bad the Bengals are — especially without Joe Burrow — this is still very much a rivalry game, and stranger things have happened. (Although, the Steelers are BIG favorites to win, so an upset is not very likely.)
Pittsburgh does lead the all-time series between these teams, 65-35, and they’ve won the past 10 meetings — 10. That’s every game they’ve played against the Bengals for 5 years. Most recently, the Steelers got a home win, 36-10, back in mid-November.
Here’s everything you need to know about tonight’s game.
