The Pittsburgh Steelers were the NFL's last remaining unbeaten team before they dropped each of their last two games. However, it is possible that they can clinch the AFC North division as soon as this week. Here is what needs to go down in Week 15 for that to happen.

First off, the Steelers (11-2) could clinch the division by defeating the Cincinnati Bengals (2-10-1) this week on Monday Night Football. Pittsburgh heads into this game as 12.5-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL betting odds. The Steelers would be looking to complete a season sweep as they already have one win against the Bengals this season.

If the Steelers drop their third straight game, they can still clinch the division this week given the Cleveland Browns lose. The Browns (9-4) take on the New York Giants (5-8) this week on Sunday Night Football. Cleveland is currently a 4.5-point favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL betting odds.

This would be the Steelers' fifth division title since 2010, but their fist since 2017. It would also be their 24th AFC North title of all time, which remains the highest number in the division. While the team may be feeling low right now following back-to-back losses, that could all change this week by clinching the division title.
