Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers play their first AFC North opponent of the season Sunday at Cincinnati.

The Pittsburgh Steelers find themselves in third place in the AFC North with a 2-3 record.

Perhaps, there's a silver lining in the black and gold's slow start.

None of the Steelers' losses have been against division opponents because they haven't played any division games. So at least they have a chance to get some divisional tiebreakers on their side.

The Steelers' first AFC North showdown is Sunday night at Cincinnati.

The Steelers would move into second place in the AFC North with a win over the Bengals (3-3), but they'll have a lot more ground to cover to catch the first-place Baltimore Ravens (5-1).

After Sunday, the Steelers don't face another AFC North team until they host the Ravens in Week 11.

Five of their last seven games are against division opponents, which means the Steelers have four weeks to get healthy and fix their problems before the meat of their division schedule.

Let's take a look at the hurdles facing the Steelers in the quest for their seventh division title since the turn of the century.
