Bengals Roundtable: No Rest for the Weary

The Bengals should play their starters, those who aren’t ready due to injury should be sat. The Bengals are playing for the shot at a first round bye. If the Patriots fail to win this week against the Bills, the Bengals could realistically get a first round bye.

In 2009 against the New York Jets, they lost in the Wild Card round 24-14 after sitting their starters in Week 17 against the Jets, losing 0-37. I know this is a different team, but momentum heading into the playoffs can be the key to making a run.

It would be nice if they had the luxury to sit a few guys that are banged up, Vontaze Burfict would for sure be in the running if they were to do so. With how Vincent Rey has been playing maybe they should anyway, just to get him ready for the playoffs.

If Baltimore were to get up  a few touchdown I think the smart thing to do is to sit some guys. They need to go into Sundays came trying to win it, because you never know what might happen in the Patriots Bills game.
