The NFL wraps up Week 13 with an AFC matchup featuring a clear playoff team, and one team looking to just stay alive. The Cincinnati Bengals host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football, with kickoff set for 5:30 p.m. PT on ESPN. Sean McDonough and Jon Gruden will call the game from the booth, and Lisa Salters will be handling sideline duties.
The Steelers are 9-2, and cruising in the AFC North. The Bengals are 5-6, and need to win this game to remain a legitimate contender for the final wild card berth. The Steelers are a 4.5-point road favorite. I’m not a big fan of Cincinnati, but I’m not sold on the Steelers this week. I think Pittsburgh probably wins the game, but it will be close enough that Cincinnati can cover.
