The Bengals and Steelers are both going to the playoffs regardless of what happens Sunday night at Heinz Field. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing at stake when the two teams collide on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.
The winner of the game will be the AFC North champion and play at home next weekend as the No. 3 seed in the AFC playoffs. The loser will be the No. 5 seed and have to play the Colts in Indianapolis.
