The Cincinnati Bengals haven’t won an NFL playoff game since January 6, 1990. They beat the Houston Oilers—right there, that tells you it was a long time ago—by a 41-14 score in the wild-card round of the AFC playoffs. Since then, the Bengals have lost all five postseason contests they’ve played in. That needs to change this weekend.
In a battle of 2-12 teams, Jacksonville overcame a slow start to earn a 21-13 win. It wasn’t a masterpiece—the Jaguars totaled just 288 yards—but it wasn’t sloppy either. The game featured no turnovers and just 10 combined penalties.

If you’re wondering how Tennessee and Jacksonville, with their combined four wins, could be playing on a Thursday night at this point in the season, it’s because every NFL team is guaranteed at least one primetime game and the Thursday match-ups are decided before the season.
Thanks to losses by the Bills and Dolphins, New England’s bye week proved fruitful.
It may be ugly at times in 2014, but Bortles will be unnerved and will benefit by going through any growing pains this fall as the Jaguars have much work to do before competing in the AFC South.
Let’s take a look at who the five worst teams will be heading into the 2014 NFL season.
Every NFL team has a chance… theoretically. But these 5 teams might as well pack it in until 2015.
