Steelers vs. Bengals: Who the experts are taking in Week 12
Final Prediction: Steelers 26, Bengals 24
This is going to be an extremely close game on Sunday. The Steelers need to come out and play their best football as their potential playoff hopes could dwindle with a loss here. This road game will be the biggest one on the schedule in 2021 to date.
The Bengals came into Heinz Field and embarrassed this Pittsburgh team in September. Lots of changes have occurred to both clubs since then. The Steel City has not forgotten what happened on that day and they will try to repay the favor this weekend.
Cincinnati will score points on offense with their electric young players all over the field. The challenge will be to limit those explosive plays and cause turnovers. The potential return of major defensive starters will be the main factor heading into this one.
If T.J. Watt, Minkah Fitzpatrick, and Joe Haden are full-go in this game then the away club should feel more comfortable heading into gameday. It is going to be a tough AFC North fight but the Steelers have it in them to overcome the odds. Experts have them winning and they should have a chance to come back home with a win as long as everything goes to plan.
The Steelers will fight for a victory in enemy territory in a huge road game. This AFC North matchup might be the toughest one of the season.
