After yesterday’s win over the Rams and losses by the other Wild Card contenders, the Bengals’ playoff chances got a huge surge, rising from 13-percent before the game to 34-percent today (according to PlayoffStatus.com)
It’s incredibly exciting considering where Cincinnati was last weekend, but let’s not lose sight of the important details. The Jets still have to lose one more and the Bengals must win out to get into the playoffs. It’s a lot more likely than it was last week, but it’s far from a certainty.
So don’t celebrate too much yet.
