The Pittsburgh Steelers are in a must-win situation today. In order to make the playoffs, they need to beat the Cincinnati Bengals and have the Baltimore Ravens lose to the Cleveland Browns.

Fortunately, Pittsburgh will have its top running back available. James Conner is set to return to the field.

Conner has missed the last three games after suffering a high-ankle sprain against the Los Angeles Chargers on December 2.

However, his ankle worked out well in pregame, so he will give it a go.

Conner needs 91 rushing yards today to reach 1,000 for the season. He leads the Steelers with 12 rushing touchdowns.

Pittsburgh and Cincinnati will kick off at 4:25 p.m. ET. The Ravens and Browns will get underway at the same time.

Both games will be shown on CBS.
