Who makes a defensive stop against the Steelers #GMCPlaybook

They say defense wins championships. Being GMC Professional Grade is about constantly improving your game. With the weather turning cold, Cincy and Pittsburgh will be relying more on their defense. The division is on the line and you need a stop. Who needs to step up to make this happen?

The Pittsburgh Steelers are on Cincinnati's doorstep, with the Bengals clinging onto a 17-13 lead with four seconds remaining from the Bengals five-yard line. Which Bengals defender do you rely on the most?

CARLOS DUNLAP to create the pass rush that forces Ben Roethlisberger to speed up his throw. GENO ATKINS, with enough strength and bulk to drop the hard-to-drop Roethlisberger to the ground... if a quarterback sack is obtainable (in that situation, we'll just take a quarterback under duress).

LEON HALL to disrupt the timing of Antonio Bryant, who has caught a team-high 17 receptions from the slot (they don't use the slot very much). Terence Newman and Adam Jones defending the pass, Reggie Nelson floating around and George Iloka playing center field and applying his all-world instincts.

When it comes down to it, which Bengals defender do you count on to make the biggest play of the year this weekend?
