Scottishbengal Posted December 19, 2011 Report Share Posted December 19, 2011 So, as we approach the end of what has been an exciting season for the Bengals, here's the up-to-date play-off scenario:-AFC:divisonal gamesPatriots 11-3 Ravens 10-4wild cardsTexans 10-5 Steelers 10-4NY Jets 8-6Broncos 8-6sniffing around:Bengals 8-6Titans 7-7Raiders 7-7Chargers 7-7NFC:divisional gamesPackers 13-1Saints 11-3wild cards49ers 11-3Facons 9-5Lions 9-5Cowboys 8-6sniffing around:Seahawks 7-7Bears 7-7NY Giants 7-7Cardinals 7-7In the games affecting the AFC, here's my own personal view on how they'll play out:-PATRIOTS:Miami @ New England, and Buffalo @ New England.Partiots win out and finish with a 13-3 record.TEXANS: (Texans hold the advantage in the case of a tie)Houston @ Indy. Wow, Indy pull off a victory 19-16Tennessee @ HoustonHouston to finish 11-5PITTSBURGH: (Pitts hold the advantage in the case of a tie)Rams @ SteelersSteelers @ BrownsPittsburgh win out to go 12-4 and take the AFCN titleNY JETS:NY Giants @ NY Jets. Tough derby game vs the NYG who are not only playing for play-off contention but a shot at the NFC East crown. The Jets 6-1 home record will count for nothing in this match which could go either way.NY Jets @ Dolphins. With Miami's poor season and nothing but pride to play for you see a Jets win here.Jets to split these games and go 9-7DENVER:Broncos @ Bills. Denver are playing for a divisional title and Buffalo have lost 7 straight. You gotta think the Bronco's will take care of buisness here.Chiefs @ Bronco's. I just can see KC scoring enough points at Mile High to cause an upset. Denver win.Denver to finish with a 10-6 recordBALTIMORE:Browns @ RavensRavens @ BengalsTwo tough divisional games to end Baltimores season, I can see them splitting these games and ending 11-5BENGALS: Cardinals @ Bengals, and Ravens @ Bengals. A tough game vs Cards who also house post-season aspirations. Although PBS hasn't been a fortress this season Arizona have travelled poorly so the Bengals should be confident of the first leg of 2 home games to finish the regular season.Oooh a super toughie finale. Cincy ran them close in Maryland earlier in the season and with it all to play for I hope local fans have snapped up the tickets and give the jungle some edge as this could be the difference in the Bengals making the play-offs!Bengals win out and go 10-6TITANS: Jaguars @ Titans, and Titans @ TexansI can't see the Jags causing too many problems and with the AFCS already in the bag Houston may have the option of playing some starters sparingly.Titans go 1-1 to finish 8-8RAIDERS: Raiders @ Chiefs, and Chargers @ RaidersOakland to beat Kansas and lose to San Diego to finish 8-8.CHARGERS: Chargers @ Lions, and Chargers @ RaidersSan Diego lose to the Lions in Motor City but bounce back to destroy Oakland leaving Carson Palmer feeling more like a Harry Palmer! Chargers finish 8-8So, the overall scenario could read:-Divisionals:AFCE: Patriots 13-3AFCN: Steelers 12-4Wild Cards:AFCS: Texans 11-5 AFCW: Broncos 10-6Baltimore 11-5Cincinnati 10-6Of course this is all conjecture and a bit of fun to while away the time between matches, so feel free to rip me a new one if I have made any errors/mistakes with these calculations. Needless to say it all starts on Sunday vs Arizona when the Bengals have to go to work and do the first part of the job. For those of you going to the game - hope you enjoy it - for the rest of us lets hope we do what we have to do and keep the season alive past this coming weekend. WHODEY!
