The Steelers will get yet another national TV game in Week 15 to try and snap a two-game skid, but at least this time for Pittsburgh, it’s against the lowly Bengals.
Back-to-back losses for the Steelers (11-2) have put them behind Kansas City in the race for the AFC’s No. 1 seed. Pittsburgh will close out Week 15 knowing what every other team has done when it travels to Cincinnati (2-10-1) for a “Monday Night Football” showdown on ESPN, eight days after the Steelers lost to the Bills on “Sunday Night Football.”
Here’s more to know about when the Steelers will be playing in Week 15, along with a look at the entire Week 15 NFL schedule.

Do the Steelers play today?
The Steelers don’t play until Monday in Week 15 because they’re the regularly scheduled Monday night programming on ESPN. That’s two weeks after they played a pseudo-national game on Monday against Washington and one week after playing Buffalo on Sunday night.
The Bengals were probably a more appetizing piece of the schedule prior to Joe Burrow’s season-ending injury. It’s been Brandon Allen and Ryan Finley splitting quarterback duties for Cincinnati down the stretch.

What channel is Steelers vs. Bengals on?
This Week 15 contest will get the normal “Monday Night Football” treatment on ESPN, which means a three-man booth and probably some creative animated graphics. Steve Levy does play-by-play, while Louis Riddick and Brian Griese provide color commentary.
In Canada, viewers can watch Steelers vs. Bengals on DAZN, which has rights to every NFL game.
