Steelers-Bengals Game Set for SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL this Weekend
Andy Dalton and the AFC North-leading Cincinnati Bengals (9-4) travel to Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pa., to take on Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers (5-8) on NBC's Sunday Night Football. Coverage begins with Football Night in America at 7 p.m. ET on NBC.
The Bengals beat the Colts last week, and are one win away from making the playoffs for the fourth time in the last five years. If the Bengals win in Pittsburgh on Sunday night, and the Ravens lose on Monday night to the Lions, the Bengals will clinch the AFC North title for the first time since 2009. The Steelers, coming off a loss to the Dolphins, aim to stay in the playoff chase.

NBC's coverage of Sunday Night Football is led by Emmy Award-winning coordinating producer Fred Gaudelli and Emmy Award-winning director Drew Esocoff. Sunday Night Football has won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Live Sports Series for five consecutive years.
Football Night In America, the most-watched pre-game show in sports, is hosted by 25-time Emmy Award-winner Bob Costas, who will report from Heinz Field in Pittsburgh Pa. Costas will be joined on-site by Michaels, Collinsworth, and two-time Super Bowl winner and Super Bowl XL MVP Hines Ward.
