Bengals win, but playoffs are going to be complicated

The upcoming picture for the playoffs is going to be very complicated, despite the recent Bengals’ win. One of the Bengals’ receivers, Marvin Jones, says that the team needs to control and capitalize all the things they have to do. The players and coaches are now thinking about Week 14 and the upcoming showdown when they play the Pittsburg Steelers, which is a very intense rivalry.

It was the Browns’ seventh loss in a row with four weeks left in the regular season.

Dalton connected with A.J. Green and completed a 23-yard touchdown pass during the game’s second quarter and now the Bengals have moved to 10-2, which has only happened twice in the team’s history, having had it happen way back in 1975. Dalton says that it’s a new play mentality for the team, they are doing well and they have big goals, which includes not just getting into the playoffs.

Dalton ended the game at 14 of 19 for a total of 220 yards. He covered 3,000 yards during this season of play, which means he gets to join Peyton Manning being the sole quarterback in the league’s history to pass 3,000 or more yards in each one of their first five seasons.

With the Bengals win Sunday night, now they are the number one team and in control of their destiny going into the playoffs.
