Steelers vs. Bengals: Game time, TV schedule, online streaming and more

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals will host their first game of the 2013 season after a heart-breaking loss in week one. Here is some information about tonight's game to get you started today.

The Cincinnati Bengals will host the Pittsburgh Steelers in their regular season home opener, after a heart-breaking 24-21 loss to the Chicago Bears... a loss that most players and coaches were quick to point out that they lost, not beaten.

For fans of the AFC North, who are proud to call the division one of the best in the league, we need this one.

Pittsburgh faced horrible luck, the injury bug, and a seven-point kickoff weekend loss to the Tennessee Titans, while Baltimore and Cleveland (both week one losers) added a snooze-fest of a performance (at least on offense) during a week where offenses exploded.

We'll preview tonight's game throughout the day. But first, the nuts and bolts with your morning coffee.
