Steelers at Bengals
When: 1 p.m. Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium, Cincinnati, Ohio.
Records: Steelers (3-2); Bengals (5-1).
The skinny: Cincinnati has been in first place in the AFC North for four weeks, the longest stretch the Bengals have been a division leader since 1990. And, win or lose, they will remain there, though their psyche will take an additional beating from failing to beat the Steelers at home again. The Steelers have won nine games in a row on the road, tying a club record, and always seem to thrive in situations such as this. It's a situation very similar to what they faced two weeks ago in San Diego. Plus they have Ben Roethlisberger and Hines Ward back.
Prediction: Steelers, 23-19
