Cincinnati and Pittsburgh were originally supposed to play the contest at 1 p.m. on Oct. 22. The NFL announced the switch on Wednesday. Cincinnati is now part of a CBS doubleheader. The Carolina Panthers and Chicago Bears game next week has also been cross-flexed from Fox to CBS, but is still at 1 p.m. on Oct. 22.
The Bengals have a Week 6 bye while the Steelers travel to face the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. Cincinnati is 3-12 against Pittsburgh since the 2010 season.
Cincinnati has lost its previous four meetings against the Steelers, including a 24-20 setback on Dec. 18 at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.
