    Tale Of The Tape: Pittsburgh Steelers At Cincinnati Bengals

    The Steelers suffered a big blow in losing their Week 13 home game to the Saints. While they rallied in the fourth quarter to make it a respectable 35-32 final, it appeared as though Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense was off by a couple of beats early in the game.

    Tale Of The Tape: Baltimore Ravens At New Orleans Saints

    The Ravens are dependent on Joe Flacco to play his best football down the stretch if they are going to make a run at the AFC North title. Flacco is certainly capable of getting hot and putting big numbers up on the scoreboard.

    Tale Of The Tape: Miami Dolphins At Denver Broncos

    The Dolphins are a solid team and they appear to be getting better. However, they are going to be tested against an angry Broncos team that has lost two of its last three games.
