The Bengals and Steelers face off this weekend in a game that could determine who makes the playoffs and who watches the postseason from home.

Going into this weekend, the Cincinnati Bengals hold a one-game lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers for the sixth and final playoff spot in the AFC. When the two teams meet on Sunday, that spot is up for grabs.

The Bengals have climbed back into playoff contention by winning five of their last six while the Steelers have stumbled to just one win in their last four tries.

With just two games remaining, the Steelers will look for a home win led by a defense that can stop Andy Dalton and the Bengals. Pittsburgh ranks first in the league in limiting opponents' passing yards and is fourth in opponent rushing yards.

Meanwhile on offense, Ben Roethlisberger has thrown for 22 touchdowns and hit receivers Mike Wallace and Heath Miller eight times each.

For Cincinnati, Dalton is coming off a couple tough games, but BenJarvus Green-Ellis has rushed for at least 100 yards in four of his last five games.
