The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals meet Sunday in week 12 NFL action at Paul Brown Stadium.
The Pittsburgh Steelers look for another win after winning five of their last seven games. The Pittsburgh Steelers have lost three of their last four road games. Mason Rudolph is completing 62.3 percent of his passes for 1,551 yards, 12 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Rudolph enters this game with 247 career pass attempts under his belt. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Diontae Johnson have combined for 904 receiving yards and six touchdowns while James Washington has 23 receptions. The Pittsburgh Steelers ground game is averaging 80.7 yards per contest, and Conner leads the way with 390 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Pittsburgh is allowing 20.2 points and 328.3 yards per game. Devin Bush leads the Pittsburgh Steelers with 74 tackles, T.J. Watt has 10.5 sacks and Minkah Fitzpatrick has five interceptions.
The Cincinnati Bengals look for a victory to rebound from an 0-10 record. The Cincinnati Bengals have all four home games this season. Andy Dalton is completing 60.4 percent of his passes for 2,252 yards, nine touchdowns and eight interceptions. Dalton and Ryan Finley have combined for 10 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Tyler Boyd and Auden Tate have combined for 1,081 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Alex Erickson has 26 receptions. The Cincinnati Bengals ground game is averaging 80.6 yards per contest, and Joe Mixon leads the way with 520 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Cincinnati is allowing 27.6 points and 425.1 yards per game. Nick Vigil leads the Cincinnati Bengals with 82 tackles, Geno Atkins has 4.5 sacks and Jessie Bates III has two interceptions.
The Steelers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. AFC North, 2-5-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Bengals are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 vs. AFC, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Steelers are 16-3-2 ATS in their last 21 meetings in Cincinnati and 19-7-1 ATS in their last 27 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Bengals last 5 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Steelers last 5 games overall.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven games as a road favorite. The Cincinnati Bengals are 0-4 ATS in their last four games as a home underdog. The Pittsburgh Steelers are obviously the better team and are still fighting for a playoff spot, but Rudolph is simply not good, and now he'll be without Maurkice Pouncey on top of James Conner being questionable. The Cincinnati Bengals are bad and at this point have no reason to even try to win, but they did put a scare in the Raiders last week and four of their last six games have been decided by 10 or less points. I'm not laying a lot of points with these Pittsburgh Steelers. Give me the free touchdown.
