Why should Cincy play their starters and expose play schemes and give the Jets the opportunity to counter and make adjustments in the game that really matters?


That rule only applies to baseball. NFL teams that are in the same division can play teams in the Wildcard game(Steelers/Browns played in 2002). As for the game itself, the Bengals need to and will play to win. A win clinches them the third seed. They would not see the Patriots until the AFC Championship, but if they did play, I'm sure they would prefer to play in Cincinnati.

Bengals have little to play for. They secured the 3 seed and after seeing Wes Welker done for the season, I think the Bengals should rest their starters. Pull a Saints, maybe?!?

Patriots have tiebreaker, according to ESPN. Bengals need a win to clinch the third seed.

According to playoff matchups, ESPN had the Patriots playing the Jets and the Bengals playing the Broncos.

I feel your pain, but your boys have no one to blame but themselves for dropping a couple games they should have won. Come back strong next year and use what happen to fuel a playoff run so you don't have to rely on help.

Yeah, including the season opener to the Jets. It's still pretty frustrating to see the Jets pick up two entirely illegitimate wins against teams the Texans had to scratch and crawl against.
