The Cincinnati Bengals will face the Pittsburgh on Sunday night football this week. The matchup will decide the winner of the AFC North and, for the Bengals, will decide whether they will become the AFC’s third seed or fifth seed. As things stand now, if the Bengals win this Sunday (and assuming the Broncos win at home versus Oakland), then they’ll face the Steelers in Cincinnati on Wild Card weekend. If the Bengals lose, then they’ll face the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Winning on Sunday would give the Bengals not just a home game on Wild Card weekend, but further confidence that they can win when in matters. Health is paramount come playoff time, but this weekend’s game may as well be considered playoff football. With that thought in mind, if players are healthy enough to suit up, doing so this weekend would be the time to sacrifice the body a bit. Here’s the Bengals injury report heading into Week 17’s action.
