Tonight at 7.15 p.m. CST the Pittsburgh Steelers are heading to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals. It's AJ McCarron v. Ben Roethlisberger as Marvin Lewis tries to make the seventh time a charm, and win his first playoff game as a head coach. This is his thirteenth year.

How to watch the game:

Time: 7:15 p.m. CST

TV: CBS (You can stream every game that's played on CBS throughout the playoffs)

Announcers: Jim Nantz and Phil Simms

Some key things to watch for: how will Cincinnati try to cover Antonio Brown, will Pittsburgh finally find success throwing deep against the Bengals, can AJ McCarron do enough, Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap's ability to create havoc, how will the Steelers run the ball without DeAngelo Williams, will this game turn from a football game into a Royal Rumble because of all the HATE, and can the Bengals finally win a first round playoff game.

Here's Football Outsiders' Preview, that looks in depth into the numbers for this game.

Enjoy the game, and doing whatever it is that you do.
