The Cincinnati Bengals will play host to a familiar foe on Saturday in the AFC North rival Pittsburgh Steelers. The two teams fought all season for control of the division and a spot in the postseason, and in the end Cincinnati ended up with the third seed, so they get the home game for Saturday’s wild card playoff game.
Game Kids Courtney Upshaw Jersey While the Bengals obviously want as many home games as possible, it’s worth noting that they split the season series against Pittsburgh, beating them on the road in Week 8 but losing at home in Week 14.
It’s unclear if Brown will be able to play for the Steelers in their Divisional round game against the Denver Broncos. Schefter notes that Burfict has already been fined a total of $69,454 for a combination of plays directed at Steelers players that the league felt warranted punishment.
Burfict has two years remaining on a contract extension he signed in 2014. It’s too early to predict what the Bengals will do moving forward, but after the debacle on Saturday night, there will be a lot of voices wanting things to change in Cincinnati.
Quarterback Kirk Cousins has been eye-opener for Washington. He is ranked 10th in the league in yardage for quarterbacks and tied for 12th in the league with 29 touchdowns. Fourteen other quarterbacks have thrown more interceptions than him this season, and his 101.6 rating puts him in fifth place, above guys like Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger, Philip Rivers and MVP frontrunner Cam Newton.
Game Womens Theo Riddick Jersey Washington’s surprising competence this season, especially in the second half, is one of the bigger storylines of the year. Jay Gruden’s club was one of the worst teams for much of last season, and with upheaval around the quarterback situation and the preseason decision to bench Robert Griffin III, a couple of wins were the most anybody expected.
