The Cincinnati Bengals haven’t won an NFL playoff game since January 6, 1990. They beat the Houston Oilers—right there, that tells you it was a long time ago—by a 41-14 score in the wild-card round of the AFC playoffs. Since then, the Bengals have lost all five postseason contests they’ve played in. That needs to change this weekend.
In a battle of 2-12 teams, Jacksonville overcame a slow start to earn a 21-13 win. It wasn’t a masterpiece—the Jaguars totaled just 288 yards—but it wasn’t sloppy either. The game featured no turnovers and just 10 combined penalties.
You’ve probably been going to Tennessee tight end Delanie Walker most of the year, and he’s been quite productive with 793 yards and four TDs. However, he is highly questionable with a knee problem, and he cannot be recommended.
Two teams that have nothing to gain this season, but a lot to gain for next year, will battle it out on “Thursday Night Football.” The future of the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars is quite cloudy right now, but a lot is on the line this week and CBS Sports’ Steve Beuerlein took time to discuss the match-up between two very young teams.
If you’re wondering how Tennessee and Jacksonville, with their combined four wins, could be playing on a Thursday night at this point in the season, it’s because every NFL team is guaranteed at least one primetime game and the Thursday match-ups are decided before the season.
The Kansas City Chiefs have been playing pretty well lately, as evidenced by their win over the Seattle Seahawks last weekend. Now, they get to the play the first of two games remaining on their schedule against the hapless Oakland Raiders, and if the Silver & Black want to win their first game in more than a year, they’ll need to be at their “best”—whatever that is.
The Oakland Raiders are 0-6, and they’re running out of winnable games on the schedule. Now, the Silver & Black travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns next Sunday, and maybe it’s a chance for the Raiders to win. The Browns are 3-3, but they just lost to previously-winless Jacksonville. Can Oakland take advantage?
With Chris Johnson gone, the Tennessee Titans look to redesign their offense and that all starts with quarterback Jake Locker. After an injury plagued career, Locker has to stay healthy and become a leader on and off the field if the Titans want to win.
There are a good amount of teams this season that will be looking to their quarterbacks to bring everything together to be on the winning path. Here is my list of quarterbacks that need a big 2014 season….
