Arguably the Cincinnati Bengals’ best player, wide receiver A.J. Green is iffy for Sunday’s playoff game in Indianapolis against the Colts. He didn’t practice on Friday and hasn’t cleared the league’s concussion protocol after suffering the injury in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. If Green can’t go, the pressure might double for the Bengals to win their first postseason contest since 1990.
The Indianapolis Colts haven’t forgotten their last meeting with the Cincinnati Bengals in week seven of the 2014 regular season, and look to capitalize on Bengals letdown.
At the start of the season, a Cleveland-Cincinnati battle as a Thursday Night primetime game did not appear to be an ideal television choice.
Rumors of the demise of the New England Patriots were greatly exaggerated.
In New England’s previous home game the Patriots barely defeated a bad Oakland team, so the prospect of playing an excellent Cincinnati team is a scary one.
Make it 24 straight years since the Cincinnati Bengals have won a playoff game, and their loss to the underdog San Diego Chargers marked a disappointing end to yet another successful season. There was a lot of hope and promise, but now the focus is on who will stay and who will go.
The Cincinnati Bengals had an unexpectedly successful season with an AFC North crown and a trip to the playoffs. Now, they’re facing off with a San Diego Chargers team they beat just a few weeks ago, but they may be facing them without a number of players.
Calvin Johnson and his stat lines have locked down best receiver with a level of dominance perhaps never before seen at that position. With Megatron sitting atop the podium, who currently owns the title of second most dangerous receiver in the NFL: Dez Bryant or A.J. Green?
When you hang by a thread long enough, eventually that thread will break. That’s what happened to the previously undefeated New England Patriots Sunday in a 13-6 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
Few people expected the New England Patriots to be 4-0 after the first quarter of the 2013 season, but now that they’ve reached that achievement, don’t be surprised to see them get to 5-0.
