The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to rebound against the Bengals in Week 12, but do the experts agree?

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers are a team who has been anything but consistent during the 2019 regular season. After a horrible start to the season, they actually rebounded to reach the .500 plateau heading into Week 12.

At 5-5, the Steelers’ playoff hopes are still very much alive, but a loss to the 0-10 Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday would be absolutely devastating to their chances at making the postseason. The game will be played at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, OH, and it is time to take a look at who the experts think will win this game.

If you are looking for pro-Steelers websites, there are plenty to choose from heading into Week 12! The experts at ESPN and CBS Sports all view this as a slam dunk game for the visiting team to move their record to 6-5 on the season.

But if you follow these picks all season, you know the haters here at SB Nation had to have at least one person pick the Bengals, right? Well, that is exactly what happened when one of the eight experts for SB Nation thinks the Bengals get their first win of the season Sunday against their AFC North rivals.

At CBS Sports, they have one expert, Pete Prisco, put together more detailed picks than just winners and losers. See what he has to say about the Steelers vs. Bengals game coming up.

The Steelers are coming off a bad loss to the Browns last week, while the Bengals have just lost all season long. The Bengals competed against the Raiders on the road, which is a good sign. But I think the Steelers defense will be too much for Ryan Finley in this one.

Pick: Steelers 21, Bengals 11

These are just a handful of websites who produce weekly expert picks. What about all the others across the internet? This is where NFL Pick Watch comes in and helps out. They take all expert picks and put them into an easy-to-read format for fans to enjoy. According to them, 99% of experts like the Steelers in Week 12.

Will this game be a giant meltdown for the Pittsburgh Steelers, or will the team find new life after Week 11 and get their record back above .500 as they push on towards the postseason? Only time will tell, but the experts clearly like the Steelers to win this Week 12 divisional grudge match.
