Yes it does and that's worlds better than where we were as fans when the team was sitting at 3-5 with the Giants coming in.

Baltimore is already in. Obviously at 11-5 they win the division. Can we win the division if tied at 10-6 with Balt?
But Bengals have to win both to get in. So the playoffs begin next week for us.

Those were dark times. Much like the 90's.

Well lookie lookie...

Pittsburgh loses to Dallas!!!

Balt 9-5
Cinci 8-6
Pitts 7-7!

We beat Pittsburgh next week and we CLINCH a playoff spot!

We need the Giants, who were completely EMBARRASSED by an Atlanta team that was EMBARRASSED last week, to get their revenge on the Ravens next week....

...and then we can win the division in week 17 at home!

This is... SWEET!


Imagine the Bengals win out and win the division... talk about momentum into the playoffs!

I love it!

WHO DEY!

....and the Bengals STILL have this chance. Now, if Baltimore loses next week and the Bengals win, it'll determine the AFCN in that final game.....which would be pretty awesome.

Hahaha.. don't worry.. the Jets will lose 1. This is the LEAST of our worries.

We need to worry about beating Pittsburgh next week.. the rest will fall into place.

Going to really enjoy watching the Bengals make the Playoffs at the steelers expense.

This is all I want for Christmas.

Just don't want people celebrating a playoff birth if we win next week and the jets win the next 2 weeks

Okay, So don't know if someone has asked this already, but....
What if the bengals lose to the steelers,
the steelers then lose to the browns the last week,
we beat the ravens the last week,
and the jets lose to TEN tom, (or any other game the next two weeks)

We are in, correct?

just to be clear, I really am not counting on that scenario, just curious. If we cant beat the steelers right now, we have no business playing the Patriots in the playoffs.

Balt is 10-5 or 9-6 (depending on game v. giants next week)
Pitts 8-7
Cinci 8-7
Jets 7-8 (Assume they lose to Ten, but win against San Diego)

In week 17... we beat Baltimore, Browns beat Pittsburgh...

Balt is 10-6 or 9-7
Cinci 9-7
Pitts 8-8
Jets 8-8 if the win last game.


Sooo.. yes.... it looks like it.

Regardless of how the Ravens do next week... if we lose next week, and win the next and Pittsburgh does the reverse (win next week and lose the next) AND the Jets lose 1 of the next 3...

...we're in.

So, let's not depend on the Browns... let's just WIN next week. (And let's hope Tennessee kicks *** tomorrow night!)

Unfortunately, no chance we win a tiebreaker with Baltimore. We have to win out and they have to lose out for us to win the division.

There is an excellent chance the Bengals could win the AFC North and host a playoff game as the fourth seed. The Ravens are hanging by a thread and the Steelers are in letdown mode after their emotional loss to the Cowboys. The Bengals will be coming off ten days rest after a win and the defense is now ranked no worse than sixth in the entire league.

Indeed, thats the hand we've got. Just saying it really should'nt have come down to an all or nothing game in Pittsburgh to decide our fate for the season. We should be out of their sight. But it is what it is, and not to forget we were dead at 3-5. So out of nowhere we've pulled out a situation where a win against the Steelers would get us in the playoffs a week early.
