The AFC North has been one of the tightest divisional races in the NFL this year, so it's only fitting the winner of it is decided in the final week of the regular season.
Both teams enter this game led by dynamic running backs who have carried their respective teams into the postseason. Jeremy Hill leads all rookies with 1,024 Rush yards and 9 Rush TD. He needs 106 yards to break Corey Dillon's Bengals record of 1,130.
As for Pittsburgh, Le'Veon Bell's 5 straight games with TD is longest streak by Steelers player since Louis Lipps had a 5-game streak in 1984, and the last Steelers 6-game streak was Ron Shanklin in 1973.
These teams are tied for the league's second-most wins since Week 8 with both going 7-2 in that span. Pittsburgh clinched their first playoff appearance since 2011 with last Sunday's 20-12 win over Kansas City. They're now a victory shy of their first four-game winning streak in a season since 2012.
The Bengals have since found their footing, clinching a fourth straight playoff berth with Monday's 37-28 win over Denver on Monday night. They also halted the trend of bad primetime performances after entering with a 2-6 record in night games since 2011.
