The Cincinnati Bengals might have been bumped out of the “Sunday Night Football” primetime slot against the Pittsburgh Steelers this week, yet that won’t stop them from donning their alternate white helmets.

That critical AFC North battle comes with the divisional standings a tight race. The Bengals, besides the (un)usual flop against the Browns, have looked on fire offensively and continue to get healthier. The Steelers just picked up a bounceback win after the return of T.J. Watt.
To hype the matchup, the Bengals offered a preview of what they will wear:
