With a win over the Minnesota Vikings at Paul Brown Stadium, a Dolphins loss at Buffalo, and New England handing Baltimore its worse loss in the John Harbaugh-era, the Cincinnati Bengals not only clinched a playoff spot, but won the AFC North division for the third time under head coach Marvin Lewis.
It’s a big deal to make it to the playoffs, but for Andy Dalton and A.J. Green, this is just business as usual. Andy Dalton is now the 6th quarterback in NFL History to lead his team to the playoffs in their first three seasons at the helm. With 31 touchdown passes and over 4,000 yards passing, it’s no wonder the Bengals and Dalton are 10-5 and winners of the AFC North.
There will be plenty of time to talk about playoff scenarios, what did happen and possibly what could’ve been. This week, is Christmas week and Clinchmas week, which means it is time for the first annual Bengals Christmas Trivia!
