    Jets
    Chargers
    Titans
    Cleveland
    Baltimore

    Two of those teams will make the playoffs, which is how bad the AFC is. I'm assuming Miami is going to implode as they are also 4-5. The only other possibility would be one of the 3-6 teams get on a run and win 5 or 6 of their last 7 games. I don't see Bufalo doing that, so that leaves Pittsburgh. They've got baltimore and Cleveland left, but they still have Detroit and Green Bay (after Rodgers is back). I don't see the Steelers being good enough to go on that kind of run.

    I don't see any of those 4 teams the Bengals couldn't, and shouldn't, beat at home in the playoffs, even with the team as is. The AFC is 3 deep with Denver, KC, and NE. Even with all the injuries, I don't see another team in the AFC that's better than Cincinnati.
    Bengals have to finish better than Indy (including beating them on Dec 8) in order to get the 3 seed and play one of the teams you listed above. Otherwise, we'll get Denver or KC, and that will probably be the end (especially if it's Denver).

    Correct. My mistake.

    I think KC is very beatable in the playoffs on the road. To me, they have the feel of the Falcons a few years ago when they steam-rolled through the regular season but you just knew they were going to lose their first playoff game.

    But agree that the best bet is to finish ahead of Indy. They are so hard to project because they won on the road in Seattle and San Francisco, then get demolished at home vs St. Louis. They've got Tennessee twice, KC, Texans, and the Jags..... other than the head to head with Cincy. That head to head very well may decide who's the 3 seed and who's the 4 seed.

    I'm normally the pessimistic guy on here. I don't think they can make a playoff run like I thought they could a few weeks ago, but I still think they win their division and have a better chance at winning a playoff game than they have since 2005. It may because of how bad the AFC is, but I'll take it however I can get it.

    The Patriots aren't a juggernaut this year so I wouldn't concede the #2 seed to them yet. They have to go to Carolina this week and then host the Broncos the week after. If the Bengals win this week, they could very well head into San Diego tied with New England.

    The number 4 seed will be a division winner; possibly our Bengals. The teams you're listing will be the #6 seed

    Poor weather conditions called for tomorrow. Not sure who that favors but my gut says the Browns.

    Depends. In the Patriots game, it favored the Bengals.

    IIRC Browns have one rushing TD all year. Can't say that bodes well for rainy weather.

    Bengals haven't allowed one since week 3.

    The Bengals should win, but the wildcard here is the Brown's defense. Leading the NFL with just a 4.5 avgerage of yards allowed per play....in a low scoring game, if you fall behind, you are done. Just like last time...

    The wildcard is Dalton. I guess that's why my thinking is that the weather favors the Browns. Campbell is steady but not spectacular, while Dalton is boom or bust. I'm afraid the weather will lead to Dalton turning it over.

    I think the winner of this one wins the division. The Browns remaining schedule is very manageable and they'd obviously have the tiebreaker over the Bengals. A Bengals win gives them a 2.5 game lead with five to play.

    first drive and we still can't protect Dalton...not a good sign.

    Our offense is a mess. Dalton is playing terrible, line not blocking, receivers not getting open. Yikes.
