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.

Yeah, outside of 2009, Marvin Lewis coached Bengals teams rarely ever beat a quality opponent. We rarely ever get blown out, and have the capabilities to beat anyone, though. I think the reason why people might pick them is because if we can put it together for 60 minutes, there are enough playmakers on both sides of the ball to beat anyone in this league. We can hang with them, just not beat them. (as of yet)

Winning not only a playoff game, but a road game against a winning team would certainly buck a trend.

With how incredible the Saints are playing, the Lions may have to forfeit in the 3rd quarter b/c they won't have enough players left to play after half of their team gets ejected for unsportsmanlike penalties and personal fouls.

Who do you want to win it all? Obviously you don't want the Packers, Steelers, and Giants.

Denver has a good shot. Big Ben injured, Mendenhall out with an ACL tear.

Denver has to score to win, I'm not sure they'll score more then 10 points.

Exactly. I'd take Charlie Batch over Tebow. The Denver running game isn't going to go for 200 plus against Pittsburgh. Tebow will have to complete for than 6 passes.

This. Can't blame them though we just lost to the Colts and the Panthers. Houston would easily blow out the Bengals if completely healthy. It's a shame how all their top players have either been out for the season or out for a majority of the season. Houston healthy would win by 2 TDs+. Right now? Probably edge them out by a field goal if the running game gets established and the D shows up. You already know Dre gonna have a big day even at 50-80%.

I like my Giants cause the game is at home. It's a toss up, but Atlanta really struggles on the road.

Giants are a dangerous sleeper team. Just never know which one will show up.
