The Cincinnati Bengals are back in the win column and it feels good! They’ll have their second matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2021 season coming up and the black and gold will be determined to take down the Bengals after the stripes won in the Steel City back in Week 3.

A lot has changed since then but what hasn’t changed is how competitive the AFC North is still. Baltimore still leads the division at 7-3 but the Bengals aren’t far behind with their 6-4 record and head-to-head record over the Ravens. They also have a head-to-tie over the Steelers, who are 5-4-1 and currently on the outside looking in when it comes to the playoff picture.

Oh, speaking of the playoff picture, the Bengals would be the No. 5 seed if the season ended today. That goes to show you how every win matters.

Bengals vs Steelers Prediction Week 12

These AFC North games have been really hard to predict. Cincinnati came out swinging against the Steelers and Ravens but then was curb-stomped by the Browns just a few weeks ago. This division is all beating up on each other and that’s what happens in a tough division.

With that said, this game is tough to predict. Will the Bengals finally figure out how to win games at home? Will this be the same group we saw kick the Steelers’ butts earlier in the season or will it be the pathetic group we saw get their teeth kicked in by the Browns?

Both teams have been inconsistent but the Steelers should come in motivated. Injuries could play a factor for them, though, and with the Bengals being mostly healthy ahead of this one and looking to have their groove back, I’ll go with a 30-24 Cincinnati victory at Paul Brown Stadium.
