But it is yet to be seen that their play-caller (Garrett) understands the latter.
But I like the Bengals. I Like the Bengals to win the AFC North & that can't happen if they lose this game. Best case scenario, is for these guys to win the 4th seed. (Texans, Patriots, Broncos, Bengals, Steelers, Ravens) Bengals beat the Steelers, Broncos beat the Ravens. New England beat the Broncos, We beat the Bengals. I don't want to play New England & the Broncos.... but I also want no part of the Ravens/Steelers.
Plus, if the Bengals win the division, we don't have to play the Ravens or Steelers next year.
If the Bengals win, and the Cowboys end up missing the playoffs (both of which I believe will occur), this game may end up being Mike Zimmer's audition to be the next Cowboys HC.
