The Cincinnati Bengals beat the Baltimore Ravens in the Wild Card round and the win helped put Zac Taylor in a very impressive category.

Per Jay Morrison, "Taylor is now tied for the NFL's best postseason winning percentage since the 1970 merger".

As Morrison notes, Taylor is 4-1 in the postseaso, giving him an .800 winning percentage. He is tied with Don McCafferty, who led the Baltimore Colts to the Super Bowl during the 1970 season. Taylor can pass McCafferty with a win over Buffalo in the divisional round next weekend.
