Steelers Vs. Bengals: Pittsburgh Aims For 50th Win All Time Over Cincinnati

For the second weekend in a row, one of the marquee matchups in the NFL will feature two AFC North opponents. Last Sunday it was the Steelers and the Ravens battling for first place on Sunday Night Football; in Week 10, the Steelers and Bengals will square off on Sunday afternoon in a key contest for both squads.

Pittsburgh (6-3) will try to avoid an 0-3 start in the division, while Cincinnati (6-2) will try to remain unbeaten in the division, improve to 6-1 in conference play, and notch their sixth consecutive victory on the year.  With a win, the Steelers would run their all-time record over the Bengals to 50-32. Let's take a look at the two teams' series history, general game information, and a few individual and team stats for both clubs heading into the Week 10 matchup.
