Update: Barring a ridiculous comeback, the Bengals will play the Jets next Saturday at 4:30.
OP: A tremendous final afternoon of NFL action has set up a crucial last regular-season game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the New York Jets. For the Jets, a win sends them to Cincinnati on Wild Card weekend; for the Bengals, a victory propels them into the third seed, thanks to Houston’s big comeback win against New England earlier today.
If the Bengals win, next weekend will see a rematch of week 6 as Houston comes back to Cincinnati for a Wild card game. If the Bengals lose, they’ll see the Jets again at home next weekend. (hat tip to jj for figuring this all out.)
Inactive tonight for Cincinnati are Cedric Benson, Fui Vakapuna, Chris Crocker, Jonathan Luigs, J.P. Foschi, Robert Geathers and Domata Peko. Bernard Scott gets the start at RB, Dan Coats gets the call at tight end, Pat Sims goes in place of Peko and Frostee Rucker is in for Geathers.
