A late-season matchup between AFC North divisional rivals would normally have massive playoff implications, especially with the expanded playoff of 2020 (and beyond). This year, however, the Cincinnati Bengals vs Pittsburgh Steelers matchup is but a formality as the playoffs draw near.

The Steelers have clinched a playoff position, though are still fighting for a playoff bye, and the Bengals are a few weeks away from the end of their season and another high NFL Draft pick.
