Article excerpt

Cincinnati Bengals (6-0) at Steelers (4-3): 1 p.m. ... Ben Roethlisberger is expected to return. The Steelers will need that to keep up with a Bengals offense that is every bit as diverse as their own. The Steelers have won the past three meetings and eight of the past 10. Prediction: Steelers, 27-23

Arizona Cardinals (5-2) at Cleveland Browns (2-5): 1 p.m. ... The Cardinals head to the Eastern Time Zone for the third time in four weeks, this time to face the Browns, who must feel as though they are stuck in a time warp.

New York Giants (4-3) at New Orleans Saints (3-4): 1 p.m. ... The Saints have won their past two at home. The Giants, who needed a pick-6 and a TD kickoff return to beat the Romo-less Cowboys, might need that and more in New Orleans. Prediction: Saints, 33-26

Minnesota Vikings (4-2) at Chicago Bears (2-4): 1 p.m. ... Hopefully the Bears used their off week to get QB Jay Cutler better prepared. He will need to be vs. the Vikings, who sacked Detroit's Matthew Stafford 7 times last week. …
