It would be nice, but Philly seems like a team that has given up.

It would be nice, but Philly seems like a team that has given up.

Last week, they played a 6-6 Bucs team, that was scratching and clawing to get themselves in the NFC playoff race, in Tampa, and snapped their 2 month long losing streak.

Tonight, they are playing a 7-6 Bengals team, that is scratching and clawing to get themselves in the AFC playoff race, only this time it's a home game in Philly, and it is always tough for a team that has to travel on a short Thursday night week.

Last week, rookie QB Nick Foles finally looked like an NFL QB (381 passing yards and 2 TD's) and if they can get a similar performance out of rookie RB Bryce Brown that they got in the previous 2 games before that (347 rushing yards and 4 TD's), then they certainly have a shot. The only problem is that one of the Eagles biggest weaknesses (OL) must face off against one of the Bengals biggest strengths (DL). If they give Foles any kind of time, or give Brown any kind of holes, then the Eagles might just help us out tonight.

I like Cincy's front 7 and think they might be a nightmare for Philly. I also worry about Philly's ability to cover AJ. This might be a blowout. I'm just hoping Cincy has a hard time playing on Thursday on the road. I hate these Thursday games. Players just can't get healthy enough on such a short turn around.

I hope Cincy traveling on the short half of a Thursday hurts them...because then they'll have a week-and-a-half to recharge and prepare for their biggest game of the year against us. Hopefully, this acts as a trap game for them.

I hadn't really thought about them getting a mini bye week right before playing us. Bummer.

If the Bengals lose to Philly and we beat Dallas and then the Bengals beat us next week, they'll be ahead of us in the standings.

That kinda sux.

Crap. I was hoping my original hunch was wrong. Cinci up 7-0 just like that.

Well it's easier for them to do things the hard way than the easy way.

On the other hand, now that Cincy has beaten Philly, even if we lose to Dallas, we'll still be ahead of Bengals in the standings if we beat them next week.

The last two games are the only ones that matter, unless the Colts lose out and the Jets win out. (I don't see either happening.) Otherwise, a win this Sunday is just gravy.

This tells me we're gonna lose to Dallas somehow.

If we beat Dallas and then Cincy, we clinch, and the last weekend is meaningless.

If we lose to Dallas and then beat Cincy, we still have the tiebreaker over Cincy, but nothing is clinched, because there would still be a possibility that Cincy could pass us if they beat the Ravens in week 17 and we lose to the Browns again.

Nobody has clinched anything in our division...

The Ravens lost last week...

They play the Giants, the Broncos and Cincinnati the last three weeks...

This division is still wide open...

True...but we sew up a playoff birth with a win this weekend and next. I believe the only way for us to surpass Baltimore is for us to win out and for them to lose out (I think they have the tiebreaker over us even though we split with them head-to-head).

The Ravens need to lose this week so they have the pressure on them to beat the Bumgals last week of ther season.

BTW is there anything about Philly that doesn't suck except for Phillyesq? Eagles are like the freaking Keystone Cops and their idiot fans are probably happy that the Bumgals winning hurts us. Can we become a separate state like West Virginia...except for the marrying your sister part?

This team lacks a killer instinct and focus when they need it; kind of the "anti-Patriots." The Pats know when to get hot, and when to get serious. Pgh like to just frick around and let games slip away when playing crap teams. No way does Belichick and Brady allow this to happen. They not only beat the teams they should, they destroy them. Not the Steelers. They choose to lack discipline and lose to the likes of the Chargers, Browns, Raiders and Titans. Way to go, head coach.
