Two division rivals face off in the second game of the Wild card weekend. The AFC North winning Bengals host the Steelers.

Though most of the season, the Bengals have been a juggernaut, but with AJ McCarron starting at quarterback in place of the injured Andy Dalton, they aren't quite the dominant team they once were.

For the Steelers, the opposite happened. They had lost Ben Roethlisberger early in the season and struggled in his absence. The Steelers have gone 6-2 in the latter half of the season since he returned to the lineup.

Outside of the quarterback position, the Bengals are better across the board. DeAngelo Williams is not playing for the Steelers and the Bengals have one of the better rushing attacks in the league, led by the duo of Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard. The Bengals also have a very good defense. We'll see if it's enough to make up for the quarterback issue.
