    Bills gonna get it done today. Bengals will be rewarded.

    The last interception was AJ Green's responsibility to make a play on the ball. Not sure what happened there, but it should have been an easy TD. For those complaining, stuffing two predictable run plays up the middle would have been much better, eh? I'm glad to see him using stuff down on the goal line instead of predictable plays. It wasn't executed, but I can't complain about an aggressive play call.

    I won't lie, I wanted no part of the Steelers in the playoffs. They know eachother too well, and I could see the Bengals playing really tight against them.

    That's how I originally felt. But then I kind of wanted to play them. I mean, it would definitely be the highest stakes Bengals-Steelers game in history, and that's saying something.

    Either the Bengals win, breaking the streak and burying all the ghosts of the past 20 years, setting a new standard for the rivalry and the division.

    Or...

    The Steelers come in, with nothing to lose, and beat the Bengals at their best, like the Carson Palmer game except maybe worse if there is no injury excuse, and the Steelers come limping in- proving once and for all that try are the dominant big brother.

    Oh well, either way, let's break this streak!!
    Go BLUE!!!

    Miami would have been the best match-up (poor QB play, motivated Bengals after losing to them the first time) but I'll take San Diego. Their defense is terrible.

    I would agree if the Bengals hadn't been doing well with the run, but the Law Firm had been getting good yards on the rare occasions they called his number. Also, there is the philosophy that when you have 1st and Goal and less than a yard to go, you should be able to punch it in. If you can't move the ball less than a yard in 3 plays, you don't deserve a TD.

    Later this evening. We should know before bed time.

    My guess is:

    4:30- Kansas City/Indianapolis
    8:00- New Orleans/Dallas or Philadelphia

    1:00- San Diego/Cincinnati
    4:30- San Francisco/Green Bay

    My guess is the Bengals will be the early game on Saturday.

    I'd prefer the early game either day.

    A philosophy that really doesn't make any sense. I was glad to see Gruden bucking the trend and run a play that will score, not worrying about "deserving" a TD. For example, he ran the read option with Dalton in short yardage today multiple times. Regularly running the ball up the middle in short yardage is lazy.

    1:00 on Sunday. Glad to get out of that 4:00 Saturday time slot.

    We're talking less than a yard and the line was doing well. At that distance all the line needs to do is fall forward and it's in the end zone. It's a little different if it's 2-3 yards and the line needs to open a hole that can be plugged by a linebacker. The only pass play I call in that situation is option where I tell the QB to only throw if the coverage is blown and you've got a wide open receiver. Otherwise run it yourself or throw it away. There is no reason to try to throw into coverage when it's 1st down and the yardage is so short.

    I'd note the read option was most successful when Dalton ran the ball himself, so it ended up being run rather than pass. For a team that seemed to do very well with the run today, they seemed to do very little of it.

    I'd also note that running on 1st and goal in the 4th quarter with less than a yard to go also has the benefit that, if you fail on the first try, you're still running time off the clock.

    Re: 2013 Bengals Discussion (Part 3)

    From Marvin's post-game interview:

    You were up 10 in the fourth quarter with first-and-goal at the one: why throw the ball there?
    “The quarterback has things that they do based on looks, so he makes the determination at the line of scrimmage.”

    So he checked down on that one?
    “We make the decisions we make and we live with them. Last week we scored touchdowns on those plays and they were great plays weren’t they? Again, last week we converted those.”

    Heck running it into the line 4 times without scoring causing the clock to run is still a bit of a win.
