Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is 3-11 in his career vs. the Steelers and has lost five straight to his division rivals.

But Pittsburgh could be vulnerable Sunday, with the Steelers’ pass defense struggling this season season and with off-field drama proving a distraction.

For the Bengals to capitalize, Dalton will likely need to perform at a high level. The Steelers, who crushed the Falcons last weekend, will try to continue their dominance of the Bengals’ signal-caller.
