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.

You’ve probably been going to Tennessee tight end Delanie Walker most of the year, and he’s been quite productive with 793 yards and four TDs. However, he is highly questionable with a knee problem, and he cannot be recommended.

The Jets improved to 3-11 on Sunday, snapping a three-game skid with their first road win. They also hurt their chances at the top overall draft pick, not that any of these Jets care.
Forget Mariota. Forget Winston. The Jets won a game in the present, but likely lost out at a shot at a brighter future.
With a combined 22 losses, the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans don’t have much to play for down the stretch.
When you sit down in front of the wide-screen Sunday at 4 p.m., pull out those blue, red, and silver pom-poms and root your head off — for those valiant Tennessee Titans.
Percy Harvin did not practice Wednesday, and Jets coach Rex Ryan wasn’t so sure he’d have the wide receiver available against the Titans.
The Titans and Jets may share 2-11 records, but the team’s could not be more different in terms of talent on the field.
This was the way the Giants should have played all season. Had they done so, they still would be in the playoff picture. Instead, they have to settle for the end of a seven-game losing streak.
The Giants had gone so long between wins they had started dreaming of what it might feel like. After beating the woeful Titans, they don’t need to dream anymore.
