The Bengals clinch a playoff spot and send their hated rivals to the doldrums as they now get to watch the Cardiac Cats lay claim to post-season life. The game was close throughout and each QB turned the ball over. The Bengals showed a lot by holding together and beating Pittsburgh in their own stadium by three points. They made a nice recovery after looking so sloppy against the Eagles last week. The Steelers’ season is becoming very tough to explain. Their defense is aging, they have no true #1 running back, and the offense is undergoing some major changes under the direction of Todd Haley. That is the best way to describe the massive collapse that Pittsburgh has had this year. Just a few weeks ago people were talking about how they could win the division (after beating the Ravens in Baltimore with a backup QB). Now those same people are wondering if the Steelers can contend for the playoffs with the team they have now.
