Bolded are winners

Houston's QB issues will catch up to them immediately.

Pittsburgh is just a better overall team than Denver, Tebow will be forced to throw.

Detroit won't be able to keep up with New Orleans in scoring

New York Giants have the superior QB, defense, similar caliber receiving core, and they are at home

Falcons struggle against the pass(Brees always torches them), I see Eli having a big game..

New Orleans is on a roll right here with the hottest player in the league. Detroit is a good team but they seem to have mental lapses and that defense doesn't seem that good, New Orleans wins in a shoot out.

This Denver game is a tricky one as Denver is home and Pittsburgh is beat up. I can see Tebow pulling some shit out of his hat but I think that defense will be able to shut out that offense the way they have been playing. Denver needs to be more aggressive.

Cincy and Houston game can go either way but I'll take Cincy as Houston has been playing poor lately.

Wow Bengals make playoffs 2 times in 3 years. Let's hope we can really hold the Texans to only a few good possessions and get through to the next round. I don't even remember if the Bengals have ever been in the 2nd round.

Anyway, I really want the Steelers to DESTROY the Broncos. I hope Tebow cries.

The last time the Bengals won a playoff game was 1991 against the Houston Oilers. They lost the following week against the Bo Jackson led Oakland Raiders. (which ended up being his last game).

That was also the last playoff win for the city as a whole in baseball/football.

This is an excellent chance to get rid of that stigma, against a reeling team that isn't looking very scary right now.

Bengals favorites on the road against a team they lost to at home a few weeks ago, without Andre Johnson.

I think Houston obliterates the Bengals, Steelers destroy the Broncos, Saints kill the Lions, and I can't even pick the 4th game. That one is by far the toughest to call, but I'll go with the Giants.

It's not an unreasonable pick.

The Bengals would have probably won that game had they simply fallen on a fumble.

I think the Texans have some big advantages, namely Arian Foster, and I think they are better coached.

The Bengals can compete with anyone in this league, but have a hard time doing it for 60 minutes, and have a bad habit of shooting themselves in the foot.

Not unreasonable, and Vegas made Houston the favorite so I can't b*tch anymore. But the thing I really have to point to is the Bengals record vs. good teams. 1-6 vs teams with a winning record, 0-7 vs teams in the playoffs. They're not any more experienced than the Texans are, and don't have a quality win this season so I'm not sure why they're such a trendy pick.
