The Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers renew their AFC North rivalry when the two square off in the Steel City in Week 8.
Cincinnati is looking to remain undefeated, entering this game 6-0 with a chance to take a three and a half-game lead in the division. Pittsburgh will be trying to prevent Cincy from running away with the division as they enter this week 4-3 after last week's 23-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
That loss did come without the services of Ben Roethlisberger, who continued to sit out with an MCL sprain and bruised knee. That injury kept him out for the Steelers' previous four games coming into this week with the expectation Roethlisberger will return against the Bengals. How effective he'll be remains to be seen, but he'll still be a massive boost for an offense that's struggled to find rhythm without him.
As for the Bengals, they're coming off their bye week after beating the Buffalo Bills 34-21 in Week 6. They've looked impressive during their unblemished start, but this is arguably their biggest test of the season thus far, and could end up being their most difficult regular-season game.
Here is everything you'll need to follow the big AFC North clash.
