The Bengals are Going to the Playoffs

photosWho Dey! The city of Cincinnati is rejoicing after the Bengals knocked off the Steelers in defensive struggle 13-10. A interception on Ben Roethlisberger by Reggie Nelson with 14 seconds left, led to a 21 yard strike from Andy Dalton to A.J. Green, set up a Josh Brown 43 yard field goal to give the Bengals the win. The sloppy win gets the Bengals into the playoffs for the second year in a row, the first time that this has happened since 1981-1982. The best thing about this victory is that the Bengals did this against their rivals the Steelers and eliminated them from playoff contention.

The AFC playoff teams were determined with the Cincinnati win. The Bengals, Ravens, Texans, Patriots, Broncos and Colts. Now, if the bi-polar NY Giants decide that they want to play like a NFL team this week, the Bengals have a shot at winning the AFC North. The Ravens fans were going crazy pre game, as they were showing the end of the Cincinnati/Pittsburgh game on the big screen and they saw the Steelers eliminated.
