The Cincinnati Bengals are the visitors to Heinz Field in Pittsburgh this week as they take on the Steelers in an AFC North Division match up.

The hosts, who will face the Bengals in Cincinnati the first week of December, lead the Division with a 4-2 record after handing the Kansas City Chiefs their first loss this past week at Arrowhead Stadium.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger bounced back from a horrible performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars to complete 17-of-25 for 252 yards and a touchdown with one interception.

This was in stark comparison to the game against Jacksonville where the veteran signal caller had been picked off five times.

Next week the Steelers are in Detroit to take on the Lions at Ford Field before taking their bye week.

Pittsburgh has home games remaining against the Tennessee Titans, Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots and the Cleveland Browns while in addition to traveling to Detroit also play the Indianapolis Colts, the Bengals and Houston Texans on the road.

While the Steelers lead the Ravens by a game in the standings atop the Division, the Browns remain winless in six outings.

Cleveland fell 33-17 to the Texans at the NRG Stadium in Houston on Sunday as rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, who the Browns passed over drafting, continued his strong start to his NFL career.

The Titans are the visitors to the FirstEnergy Stadium this week in Cleveland as the Browns continue their hunt for that elusive first triumph of the campaign.

Pittsburgh are 1.002 to win AFC North, while Cincinnati Bengals are 81.00 and Baltimore Ravens are 34.00.
