The Pittsburgh Steelers host the Cincinnati Bengals in a must-win divisional matchup. Here’s how to watch the game and what we are expecting in Week 11.
After a pivotal win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 10, the Pittsburgh Steelers now sit on a 3-6 record. This certainly isn’t what head coach Mike Tomlin had in mind going into the second-half stretch, but his team was able to avoid catastrophe with a win last Sunday.
This week, the Steelers can keep their season alive with an upset win over the Cincinnati Bengals, but they will certainly have a challenge on their hands. Tomlin’s team defeated the Bengals in Week 1, but it required seven sacks, five takeaways, and a blocked field goal to eventually get the job done in overtime.
With T.J. Watt back and the Steelers looking energized after their bye, we expect a close contest you are going to want to tune in for. Here’s how to catch the Steelers vs Bengals in Week 10:

Steelers vs Bengals Predictions
Unsurprisingly, the Pittsburgh Steelers are underdogs for this contest and injuries could play a factor. While we haven’t seen enough improvement from Kenny Pickett and the offense, the defense has taken a big leap forward after the return of T.J. Watt.
With an offensive line that has struggled in pass protection, the Steelers pass rush could get the best of Joe Burrow this week. This plays into Pittsburgh’s strengths. Despite the 3.5-point spread, we are predicting an upset win by Tomlin’s team this week with a final score of 20-17.
Steelers vs Bengals History
The Pittsburgh Steelers are 68-38-0 all-time against the Cincinnati Bengals in a rival that dates back to the merger in 1970, according to Football Database. During the Ben Roethlisberger era, the Steelers owned the Bengals — going 30-8 since Roethlisberger was drafted all the way back in 2004. However, the post-Ben era could yield different results.
