Quick Hits: Bengals Look To Display Depth In Playoff-ish Game Vs. Steelers
On Dec. 23, 2012, the Cincinnati Bengals won on their last play of the game at Acrisure Stadium and went to the playoffs. The Steelers lost and went home, and it's got that same kind of feel as the Bengals play their first game ever without the Pro Bowl tandem of quarterback Joe Burrow and wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase.

Five Things To Watch: Bengals at Steelers

When not snapping the ball to Joe Burrow or Jake Browning, Karras is maybe best known around town for his signature Cincy Hat, which he began selling in November of last year. The hats feature Bengals, Reds and FC Cincinnati colors and claw marks and has generated more than $800,000 in sales, with all proceeds of over $325,000 going directly to Village of Merici, a non-profit living community and service provider for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities based in his hometown of Indianapolis.
