The Cincinnati Bengals have defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 13-10. That eliminates the Steelers from the playoffs and potentially sets up a winner take all division matchup between the Baltimore Ravens and the Bengals next week if the Ravens fail to win the division with a victory today.

The Ravens still control their own destiny as they have all season, but it has to make fans breathe easier knowing that the always crafty steelers are officially out of the playoffs. With the Win, the Bengals have officially clinched playoff berth, either a 4 seed with a win next week and a Ravens loss today or a 6 seed with a Ravens win in either of their last 2 games.
