The Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers play in an AFC wild-card game on Saturday at Paul Brown Stadium.

The Bengals finished the season 12–4, after defeating the Baltimore Ravens 24–16 in Week 17. Cincinnati could have clinched a first round bye if the Denver Broncos had lost in Week 17, but the Bengals will instead host their division rival at home.

The Steelers concluded their season with a 10–6 record after defeating the Cleveland Browns 28–12 last week. Running back DeAngelo Williams, who has played in the absence of Le’Veon Bell, sustained an ankle injury in Sunday’s win. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 349 yards and three touchdowns against Cleveland, but also tallied two interceptions.

Saturday will mark the third time this season the two teams have played each other.
