Bengals vs. Steelers: How to watch, TV schedule, streaming options, and pregame thread

Here is how to watch the Bengals go into Pittsburgh this Saturday.

The Cincinnati Bengals need to keep winning to get themselves into the playoffs. They are currently listed as the sixth seed, but they still may need some help to get in. Among their final three opponents, the Pittsburgh Steelers present the most likely victory of the bunch.

That may sound weird to say considering it was four weeks ago it was the Steelers walking out of Paycor stadium with the W. A lot has changed since then, though.

That game was Pittsburgh’s first after firing offensive coordinator Matt Canada, so the offense clearly came out with some extra fire. Even then, they only scored 16 points on the day.

That was also Jake Browning’s first official start filling in for Joe Burrow after his wrist injury. It was easily the worst the offense has looked since Burrow went down, and they managed to score 10 points.

All of this is to say that the Bengals had one of their worst outings and barely lost. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh had one of their best outings and barely won.

Both sides have a number of injuries and missing players. Cincinnati will be without wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase and defensive lineman DJ Reader. Both are one of the top players on offense and defense, respectively.

Pittsburgh will be without their starting safeties and trotting out Mason Rudolph at quarterback.

We will have to see who is able to actually move the ball this Saturday.

Here is how to watch Bengals - Steelers.
