It will be a packed house Saturday as the Bengals battle the Steelers in a sold-out wildcard game in Cincinnati, and Coach Marvin Lewis isn't wasting any time getting the team ready.

"It's important to move on and win," said Lewis at a Monday news conference. "We're looking for more than one win. One win will give relief outside of this building."

The opponent Saturday at 8:15 p.m. is a familiar one. The Bengals beat the Steelers Nov. 1, 16-10, but lost to Pittsburgh Dec. 13, 33-20.

"Our guys have worked hard. We've got to come out and play great football Saturday. That's what's key and paramount. It's not personal to me, but it's an important game for our football team because it keeps our goals in line," Lewis told reporters at Paul Brown Stadium.

The game is televised nationally, and a win would break an 0-6 losing streak in Bengals playoffs. If the Bengals win, Cincinnati would play the Patriots at Gillette Stadium Saturday, Jan. 16 at 4:35 p.m.
