Antonio Brown's late TD sends Steelers over Bengals 28-21

James Conner ran for 111 yards and a pair of touchdowns on the eve of Le'Veon Bell's possible return, and Antonio Brown turned a short pass into a 31-yard touchdown with 10 seconds left as the Pittsburgh Steelers pulled off another improbable comeback...

The Bengals executed a quick, calm and efficient touchdown drive to tie the Steelers at the end of the first half after giving up a late touchdown. Bengals have done a great job of keeping their composure despite losing Nick Vigil and injuries to Vontaze Burfict and Darqueze Dennard. Dennard gave up a big catch to JuJu Smith-Schuster before going in the locker room, which led to a Steelers' touchdown. Bengals have also had issues with drops today. This rivalry is typically heated and it looked like things could get chippy early in the game, but things calmed down as the game went on.

Vontaze Burfict and Darqueze Dennard have right shoulder injuries. Injuries are piling up after Nick Vigil left with a knee injury.

Bengals CB William Jackson is active despite being limited in practice all week, however, John Ross is inactive with a groin injury for the second game in a row. Ross was able to practice this week, which is a step forward.

NFL Live: AFC North Bad Blood

The NFL Live crew dives into the bad blood of the Steelers-Bengals Rivalry. Also, reports from New England and Kansas City with developments in Sunday night's big matchup.

Katherine Terrell ESPN Staff Writer 

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd said games against the Steelers tend to always be a tough, physical matchup. "Every game I've been in against the Steelers has (had) some type of aggressive hits, or something dirty going on," he said. "At the end of the day, it's football. You can't go out there and play scared, play frightened. You've got to go out there and hit. It's hit or be hit. Those are the games that are going to be hard fought and those are the games you have to bring it to get the win. It's a (divisional) game. Not saying we don't come out and bring it every game, but it's something about the Steelers when we play them, and the Ravens. Those type of games, we've got to be super locked in, super prepared and focused."
