The New England Patriots both lost dibs is on for the AFC’s No. 2 playoff spot.
The Cincinnati Bengals haven’t even played yet, and they’re suddenly in control of their own destiny again.
The Patriots just succumbed to the Miami Dolphins in a hard-fought affair that came the game, and Tom Brady was picked-off on a fourth down in the final seconds to drop New England to 10-4.
Meanwhile, the Bengals are sitting back, relaxing in a set of comfy chairs as they prepare to face the Pittsburgh Steelers for a chance to climb into the No. 2 seed.
That’s because the Bengals own the head-to-head advantage over them, following their 13-6 victory from earlier in the season. With an undefeated record at home, the Cincinnati Bengals are looking more and more like that team to get the No. 2 seed as long as they can win tonight.
