The As Of Now Unnamed Steelers Pregame Show: Week 16 Bengals at Steelers

Lose and the Steelers are out of the playoffs. Win and get some help, the Steelers are still alive for the division title. Lots at stake, so Co-Starters Neal Coolong and Lance Williams are going to break it all down before kickoff.

Co-Starters Neal Coolong and Lance Williams are live on Behind The Steel Curtain at noon ET Sunday before the Steelers take on Cincinnati in a Week 16 playoff game.

If the Bengals win, the Steelers are playing in their first meaningless Week 17 game that does not have a playoff game following it since 2006. Incidentally, that game was also played against Cincinnati, and the Steelers prevailed in an overtime win in Bill Cowher's final game as head coach.

A Steelers win means Pittsburgh remains alive for the final Wild Card spot in the AFC and still could win the AFC North with a victory over Cleveland in Week 17, as well as losses from Baltimore against the Giants in Week 16 and the Bengals in Week 17.

The key thing here is getting ready for a fight. The Steelers were physically dominated by the Cowboys in Week 15, and shoddy tackling was as much a problem then as it has been all season.

We're going to discuss all these things and more here at noon ET, so click on the screen above, and listen to us live. Weigh in with comments below, and we'll address them on the air.

The broadcast will be recorded and placed on this page, as well as Behind The Steel Curtain's YouTube page, should you want to go back and watch it later.

We'll do another one following the game as well, so stick around, it looks to be an enormous game in the AFC.
