Hello folks. This is Joe Wright, @Sctvman on Twitter, and we are about 15 min away from the Steelers/Bengals grudge match in Cincinnati.

The Steelers and Bengals have already played twice this season. The Steelers won in Cincinnati, while the Bengals stole one in Pittsburgh.

This game however is one without Cincinnati QB Andy Dalton. Backup AJ McCarron helped Bengals win the division and get this game at home.

A Bengals win would send the Chiefs to Denver. A Steelers win would send them to New England.

It looks to be a rainy night in Cincinnati. Light rain now, could get heavier later.

Ten years ago in Cincinnati's first playoff game in 15 years, the Steelers beat the Bengals on the road, as Carson Palmer had his ACL torn.

Ben Roethlisberger is in the playoffs again with the Steelers, as he has become one of the most prolific QBs of the last decade.

Jim Nantz and Phil Simms announcing the game, CBS's only one of the weekend. AFC playoffs will be set after this game.

Coin toss: Steelers call tails. Heads is call. Bengals defer. Steelers will get the ball first.

Less than 300 miles separate Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. Sixty minutes separate one of them from a trip to New England or Denver.
