Bengals: What are the Chances...?

The Steelers are an 8.5 point favorite over the Bengals, but Steelers' fans aren't feeling too comfortable, despite Cincinnati's 2-10 record. Pittsburgh nearly blew a big lead in the first meeting before barely escaping with a 27-21 win. And the Steelers have a history of struggling against Cincy at Heinz Field, losing in 2009, 2006, 2005, and 2003. Between the weather (rain in the forecast), Ben Roethlisberger's injuries, and Cincy's struggles defending the run, I'm expecting the Steelers to go with a run-heavy attack ... and find a way to pull out a win, and perhaps secure a playoff berth this week. Steelers: 60 percent chance.

What are the Chances is a mediocre 7-5 thus far in 2010, but 55-25 all-time.
