The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals clash Sunday in a week 11 AFC North division matchup in NFL action from Acrisure Stadium.

The Cincinnati Bengals will be out to build on their 42-21 win over Carolina in their last game. Joe Burrow has thrown for 2,535 yards, 18 touchdowns and 6 interceptions on 70% passing while Joe Mixon leads the Bengals with 585 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns so far this year. Ja’Marr Chase leads Cincinnati’s receiving group with 47 grabs for 606 yards and 6 TDs but is continuing to miss time due to injury while Tee Higgins has 41 grabs for 564 receiving yards with 3 TDs and Tyler Boyd has 537 receiving yards and 4 scores as well on the year. On defense, Germaine Pratt has a team-high 60 total tackles while Trey Hendrickson has a team-high 4 sacks this season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will be out to build on a 20-10 win over the New Orleans Saints last time out. Kenny Pickett has thrown for 1,161 yards, 2 touchdowns and 8 interceptions on 66.7% passing while Najee Harris leads the Steelers in rushing with 460 rushing yards this season. Diontae Johnson leads Pittsburgh with 47 grabs for 435 receiving yards while Pat Freiermuth has 403 receiving yards and George Pickens has 370 receiving yards as well this season. On defense, Myles Jack has a team-high 72 total tackles including 43 solo tackles while Alex Highsmith has a team-high 8.5 sacks and Minkah Fitzpatrick has 3 interceptions this season.

Cincinnati is 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games overall and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 road games while the over is 3-0-1 in their last 4 games overall. Pittsburgh is 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 division games while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall.

I get the case to be made for Cincinnati laying the points on the road as the better team. However, the Steelers defense looked rejuvenated with TJ Watt back and it looks like the Bengals are still having some issues adjusting to life without Ja’Marr Chase. I think this is going to be your prototypical rivalry game with hard hits and neither side wanting to give an inch and in the end it’s going to come down to the final possession. Give me the Steelers and the points.
