Bengals have beaten a lot of the AFC playoff teams this year, including New England. Our defense is ferocious, even with the absence of Leon Hall and Geno Atkins. Also, we have beaten many of the top QB's in the game (Brady, Ben, Rogers, Rivers, Luck).

Offensively, I'll put out talent against anyone else's in the league, but ultimately, it comes down to Dalton avoiding crucial mistakes. At least once or twice a game, he does something extremely idiotic. That kind of thing can cost a team in the playoffs.

I view Denver as being the class of the AFC, but they aren't head and shoulders better than the Bengals. It wouldn't be the biggest upset of all time to go into mile high and take them down, but first, we must beat the Chargers to erase the 23 year playoff win drought.

Basically, my point is, I think the Bengals can beat any of these AFC teams. Not saying they will, but this is the best shot we have had in a long time. For all of our previous playoff matchups this millennium, I truly felt we were facing better teams in the first round. Not this time.

Bengals are somewhat overlooked, they have a good defense and playmakers on offense, but I just cannot trust this team in a big game, they always seem to under perform when all eyes are on them.

Dalton is the biggest question mark

Its understandable that people would feel that way, and it's hard to put one's trust into a coach in his 11th year that is 0-4 in the playoffs. He and the Bengals have a lot to prove still.

Suprised at all the love the Panthers are getting.. Their offense is terrible. The Saints should have beaten them but our offense couldn't get one first down to seal the game.

Lets be real though, a Seahawks vs 49ers NFC championship would probably be the game of the year. Brady vs Peyton is cool and all, but the 49ers and Seahawks beating the shit out of each other is what football is supposed to be.

As a Saints fan I agree with this

Although all of our losses on the road have been to physical defenses and Philly's weakness appears to be their defense.

Bengals beat Chargers
Indy beats Chiefs
Saints beat eagles
San Fran beats Greenbay


Broncos beat Bengals
Pats beat Indy
Seahawks beat saints
San Fran beats Panthers


Broncos and Seahawks make superbowl. Seahawks win comfortably forcing a bunch of turnovers on Peyton to win it all.

How the **** are people picking the Chargers over the Bengals IN Cincinnati? Bengals even beat the Chargers earlier this season. Wow they're getting overlooked and disrespected. We'll see on Sunday.

I trust Dalton the least out of every QB in the playoffs.

Cincy is 8-0 at home. The defense won't let Rivers do a thing out there.

Everyone picked against the Giants on their super bowl run too. Consider it good news
