Pittsburgh (3-6) at San Fran. (4-5)

Time: 9.

TV: Chs. 2, 7.

Line: 49ers by 4.

Key stat: 49ers are in the top 10 in offense (No. 8) and defense (No. 7).

Players to watch: WR Terrell Owens leads 49ers with 48 catches. Steelers WR Hines Ward leads AFC with 60 catches.

The buzz: In a less-than-stellar Monday night matchup, the 49ers will scramble to stay in the NFC playoff race. San Francisco is 4-1 at home, and the 49ers' defense is likely to contain the Steelers' mediocre offense. -- Chicago Tribune

Pittsburgh (3-6) at Cleveland (4-6)

How lame is the AFC North? A game between teams with losing records has significance in Week 12. The Steelers had won the previous six meetings before falling to the Browns, 33-13, in Week 5.
