  1. With all this in mind is there a chance the Bengals vs Steelers game will get bumped up to the Sunday Night game?

  2. Seubs says:

    I think they already announced that the Lions and Saints game would be flexed to Sunday night instead. I don’t think CBS was willing to part with the game.

  3. Nate says:

    Seubs is correct. Bengals/Steelers is staying at one. Cincinnati’s final home game with Baltimore could get flexed I suppose. It’s also worth noting that Troy Polamalu suffered what seemed to be a concussion last night. Maybe Cincy will get lucky and he’ll miss Sunday’s game.

  4. Bill says:

    A loss this week agaisnt Pittsburgh doesn’t hurt the Bengals’ playoff hopes, but a win helps them immensely.

    Vegas is giving 7.5 pts to the Steelers this week. That makes sense if you know nothing about the game other than that the Steelers won in Cincy by 7. With the Bengals having A.J. Green for the full game and hopefully having Dunlap back, plus if Polamalu has to sit after having his bell rung yet again last night, this game is not a lock for either team. And the Bengals always play the Steelers better at their place. (I so wish I could understand why that is.)

    BRONCOS: I’m not buying into Denver, but since they own the tie-breaker, I will feel better once they are a game further back. JETS: The Jets just don’t have the mojo this year. I think they will lose to the Giants and one that they shouldn’t (Eagles or Redskins) to eliminate themselves at 9-7. TITANS: Boy am I glad the Bengals have the tie-breaker. Jacksonville’s D could trip them up, but 10-6 looks very realistic for them.

    Win out and they’re in. That should be the mantra in the locker room. I don’t think they lose both to Pitt and Baltimore–they are bound to exact revenge on one, if not both of them. The Houston game should be easier, though we need to get better at stopping the run again. Arizona and St. Louis have to be victories no matter what scenario you look at.

    Again, just win out…what’s wrong with that? 🙂
