Sunday Night Football Open Thread: Bengals v. Steelers

"When it's game time, it's pain time baby...WHOO!" - photo credit - Kirk Irwin

Tonight Andy Dalton and the Bengals look to advance their first place standing in the AFC North as they visit the struggling Pittsburgh Steelers. Talk about it in BRB's Sunday Night Football open thread.

With a 9-4 record, the Bengals have a two game lead in their division over elite Joe Flacco and the reigning champs; the Ravens are 7-6 and still in the hunt for a playoff berth. The infamous "Steel Curtain" of Pittsburgh is heavily rusted and far from the well-oiled machine that met the Packers in the Super Bowl three years ago. At 5-8, the Steelers are most likely out of playoff contention, but they are sure to give Cincinnati a good old fashioned divisional battle tonight on Sunday Night Football.

Pull up a seat and enjoy this great AFC match-up! Share your thoughts below. Remember the standard rules of conduct apply, even when describing that notorious quarterback who wears black and gold.
