The Cincinnati Bengals have somehow quietly pushed themselves into the playoffs for a second straight season and are being given a chance to avenge last season’s postseason loss. This makes Cincinnati Bengals tickets quite compelling to fans used to enjoying the exploits of the Dalton-Green expressway and the righteous right side of the defensive line at Paul Brown Stadium. Armed with this dangerous passing attack and a Top-10 defense built on pressuring the quarterback, Coach Marvin Lewis has to like his chances of playing beloved underdog from the sixth seed on the AFC side of the NFL playoffs and perhaps reaching as far as the Super Bowl.
Before fans get to book flights toNew Orleansto enjoy Super Bowl XLVII at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, the team first has to survive a grinding road that goes through at leastHoustonandDenver. The Texans beat them last season, but the Bengals arrive as the hot team, having won 7 of the last 8 instead of dropping three of their last four. After this wild card round, Cincy is forced to play the best defense in the AFC and the comeback player of the year/possible MVP in Peyton Manning. This is no easy task, but it far from unwinnable.
The Bengals played the Broncos back in Week 9 and lost, but they kept the game close. Cincinnati began its winning streak after this loss, which happened to be the fourth in a row. So, if the Bengals are indeed able to triumph over the Texans, as they should be able, then Cincy gets to avenge another loss. This is ample ammunition for a coach and for professional football players. Plus, the seeming slight at the hands of the sports media, again forgetting a team playing the rust belt, should create a ramped up atmosphere over these next few weeks. These will not be the Cincinnati Bengals playoff tickets in the next few seasons, but, after proving the new kid in the postseason last season, the franchise and all its parts are driven to make a big enough impact so no one can doubt the quality of this NFL team.
