The last time we spoke the Bengals needed to beat Pittsburgh to get into the postseason. Check. They also needed to beat the Ravens to clinch double digit wins for the third time under Marvin Lewis. Check. Now the Bengals have a prime opportunity to end their most daunting streak, winning a postseason game for the first time in forever. The Bengals are facing a familiar postseason foe, the Houston Texans. This same Houston Texans team that knocked them out of the postseason one year ago. Can the Bengals get over the hump? Or will it be the same postseason debacle we’ve seen in the Marvin Lewis era? One and Done. Let’s hope they figure it out Saturday!

The Bengals defensive line is really good.
The Bengals are in the top 3 for sacks this season and this is largely because of the play of the Bengals defensive line. The front 4 for the Bengals have generated 42 of the teams 51 sacks (that alone is better than 25 other NFL teams). This means the Bengals are able to generate a ton of pressure on opposing quarterbacks without fancy...
Saturday is the big day, and if you are like me, you’re almost literally counting the hours until game time. This is the fourth playoff appearance for the Bengals of the Marvin Lewis regime, so luckily for us it’s become almost commonplace to be in the playoffs and the awful stench of the lost decade seems firmly in the rearview.
That said, the Bengals are 0-for-3 so far in...
CINCINNATI (AP) -- BenJarvus Green-Ellis didn't suit up for the Cincinnati Bengals' practice on Tuesday. He wore black sweatpants and a gray hooded sweatshirt, running by himself at one end of the University of Cincinnati's covered football field while everyone else ran plays.
It's another challenge for an offense that's hit the wall.

Michael Johnson towers over blockers at 6-foot-7. At 6-foot-1, Geno Atkins often gets dwarfed on the line. Domata Peko is gregarious. Carlos Dunlap tends to cut off interviews after a few questions.
The Bengals' defensive line is an eclectic mix of players from far different backgrounds with very different personalities and body types. Together, they formed one of the NFL'...

The Cincinnati Bengals finished 2012 strong. After starting off with a 3-5 record, the Bengals went on a 7-1 run to end the season. With an improved defense and a tough-at-times offense, this year's squad certainly gives fans hope of a bright future. Although the team made the playoffs as a wild card, fans would still like to see their team raise the bar a bit. The time...
A year ago this weekend, in the same line on the AFC bracket and in the same made-for-television time slot, the Cincinnati Bengals went to Houston and were promptly eliminated from the playoffs.
Take Two can be different.
That's not to say it will be, or that the still young and still very much unproven Bengals are ready to win a road playoff game against a talented Texans team...

Bengals at Texans-4.5
For the second year in a row, the NFL playoffs kickoff with the Cincinnati Bengals traveling to Houston to face a Texans team favored slightly in the point spread.
