The Pittsburgh Steelers needed a rare road win to keep their AFC North title hopes alive, and they delivered in a big way to the tune of a 42-21 victory over the division-rival Cincinnati Bengals.

Editor Neal Coolong of BTSC and I field questions from fans, breaking down the statistics and talking about everything from the divisional race to the AFC playoff picture.

There are some serious questions still remaining with this football team, especially on the defense but, for the moment, fans were able to bask in the glory of a dominant finish as the Steelers scored 25 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to ice the game.

Le'Veon Bell, Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown proved they're the best trio of quarterback, running back and wide receiver in the NFL, and their play will ultimately lead to the Steelers first post-season berth in three seasons, or possibly to their demise if they cannot produce.
