If only we had beaten the Cowboys we would have had a real good chance.

Ravens are going to lose and look like a mess. All CIN should be thinking about is PIT. Gruden needs to get his stuff together and coach his arse off.

Ravens seem to be falling apart. The scary part is that they are usually near unbeatable at home. Now they're getting blown out there. We get them here in Cincy, but first we have to beat the Steelers or we might not go at all, let alone win the division.

Btw, the Texans have a pretty comfortable lead over the Colts as well. That helps us as far as the wc goes.

If Dalton averages over 30 passes per game in 2014, I win. If he averages less than 30, you win. Loser can't post in any Dalton threads for 1 year. You game?

And as usual the Colts are coming back and the texans give up huge chunks of yardage

Well.. Baltimore has lost and Houston is up on Indy with a second to go... LOL

So...

Balt 9-5
Cinci 8-6
Pitts 7-6 - kicking off against Dallas...

And Indy is 9-5.

Now the key to this is that Atlanta smoked the Giants, so you know they'll be hot for a win next week against Baltimore... and they'll probably get it!

Next week... GO GIANTS! GO BENGALS! and the division comes down to week 17 against Baltimore at home!

WHO DEY!

There you have it. Add the fact that the team came out flat and you know exactly why Marvin Lewis & Jay Gruden have run their course & need to be replaced.

Baltimore 9-4 - home to Denver & NY Giants, then @Cinci.
Pitts 7-6, with games at @Dallas & home against Cinci & Cleveland
Cinci 8-6, with games @Pitts & v. Baltimore.

I think Denver beats Baltimore today and I doubt Pittsburgh gives it up to Dallas like we did last week... buuut.. Dallas needs this win badly. Washington will probably take care of Cleveland (even without RG3) & I think Atlanta bounces back and beats the Giants. That would create a 3-way tie between NY, Washington and Dallas at 8-6.

If Atlanta does win, the Giants will have to take care of the Ravens next week.


Bottomline: I don't think the Ravens have the AFCN locked up by any stretch. In fact, I wouldn't be shocked to see the Ravens drop the next two games to Denver & the Giants setting up Baltimore @ Cinci in week 17 for the AFCN title.

I know, I know.. one week at a time. But we won our game this week... so I think it's okay to look ahead a bit.
It's not even an outside chance. It's a legit chance. The Ravens have lost 2 straight and are on the road against NY. If the Bengals take care of business they will win the division.

We can still win the division, and we can also miss the playoffs, with 2 games to go.

I hate how they do our schedules, they force this **** to happen...

That's a big if when you consider that Marvin Lewis teams are 1-5 (0-3 in division) after 8-6 starts.

That said, I think the Steelers and especially the Ravens are more beatable now than they've been in the past decade. We get the Ravens at home and they are terrible on the road. It can be done.

If only the Bengals didn't screw up the Miami game.
If only the Bengals didn't screw up the Cleveland game.
If only the Bengals didn't screw up the Pittsburgh game.
If only the Bengals didn't screw up the Denver game.
If only the Bengals didn't screw up the Dallas game.

Win any one of those games and the Bengals and Ravens would be tied for first place in the AFC North. All 5 of those games, the Bengals should have, could have won. Win two of those games and I don't think the Bengals have to worry about getting into the playoffs. Win all of those games and the Bengals have home field advantage in the playoffs on their way to a Super Bowl.

Very much this. If we dont make the playoffs this year its all on us. The division was set pretty perfectly for us this year. We should've won it already. Still can, but if we get a wildcard spot ill take it.

Does anyone know what are record is playing steelers away? I am thinking we have more wins in their house then ours.
found the answer fairly close 18 wins at home 14 in pitt. yet in 2000's we won 2 at home 4 away. Guess the 90's messed up my memory.

True...but it comes down to beating the Steelers now. If we beat them...we're in and can win the division.

What if we lose to the Steelers, and Beat the Ravens. But the steelers win out.

The steelers will have beat us twice. Who wins the division, who gets the wild card? We definitely wouldn't get the wild card since the steelers beat us twice.

The way the season started (Beat-down at Baltimore) I thought the Bengals might have a double digit loss season. Now they have a chance for a double digit WIN season and a chance to win the division.

They control their own destiny too. If the Steelers win out, they're in.
