THE HOT TICKET: Steelers at Bengals
1 p.m., Ch. 10
THE SCOOP: These teams meet with winning records for the first time in 15 years in this surprising AFC showdown. Cincinnati has waited decades for a statement game. The Steelers will look to win a franchise-record 10th consecutive road game. The NFL's two highest-rated quarterbacks are also among its youngest: the Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger (123.8) and the Bengals' Carson Palmer (113.6). Palmer could set an NFL record with his 10th consecutive game with a passer rating of 100 or better. Pittsburgh was the last team to deny Palmer.
KORTH'S PICK: Steelers 27, Bengals 24
