So I'm thinking, gotta root for Cincy here what with the Texans sitting at 9-3 and holding the head to head advantage.

Yep, Cincy win would have helped us.  But they couldn't get their crap together in the end.

Fun fact:  Bengals now 0-6 against teams currently leading or tied for lead in their divisions, 7-0 against everyone else.  Average-to-slightly-above-avarage team that wins games they are supposed to, loses games they are supposed to.  Looks like 9-7 and missing playoffs.

For Cincy, it's a good season.  Maybe not for their fans but who cares?  How do the Texans keep winning?

I like the Steelers' chances in any rematch.

Defense playing well, keeping score down.  This was most points they have allowed in any of their 10 wins (19).  Second highest is 14.

3 losses?  Gave up 40 (NO), 25 (OAK), and 29 (BAL).

So if you can get a couple short field/special teams scores, you have a good chance.

Kubiak's done a good job, though coach of the year talk ignores a substantially improved D.  That always helps.

The rookie QBs are making that squishy sound of hitting the wall.

The Michelin Man coaches a mean D and that's always been what held back the Texans.
