Bengals @ Texans wildcard playoff preview

If someone told me I was going to be making a post about the Bengals in the playoffs....I would have called you insane. Unfortunately, no one saw it coming. I'm happy for the Bengals making the playoffs. Especially when no fans at Cincy are supporting that team because they believe the owner is cheap and the prices for tickets are so high. It is great to see and hear. Cincy has the best fans in the NFL!!!

In any case, we got to witness a great ending to a football game between these two teams a month or so ago. TJ Yates led the team down field with seconds left to win the football game. 3rd string qb, no Andre Johnson, and so on. I believe Andre Johnson will play this week which should make it much tougher for the Bengals secondary this go round. Who has the better game? Green or Johnson? In any case, Houston deserves a lot of credit for all the adversity they have overcome with a lot of injuries to their star players including: Arian Foster, Andre Johnson, Matt Schaub, and I could go on. First playoff appearance in franchise history. Both teams are looking to pick up the victory for first playoff win in ages.

Who wins: Texans

Why: I picked the Bengals before, but I have changed my mind with the recent brain storm I just had. My reasons to be cautious with the Bengals: Who have they beat this year with a winning record? They didn't bring any momentum to the playoffs with them as did the Texans. Texans will have Andre Johnson back so it will be much tougher than it was last time vs the Texans. Bengals are a young football team and not as mature as the Texans are. They are both new to the playoff environment, but the home field advantage may be too much for the Bengals to overcome.

Final word: All I can say is....Raven fans: You had better root for the Bengals to lose cuz as you know, you won't be winning a Super Bowl in Woodley's lifetime. Patriot fans: I've heard some Pat fans on the board claiming to be rooting for the Bengals because they don't want to face Pittsburgh. I'm telling the truth here, I suggest you all do the same. Surprised??SurprisedDon't be.....STAY JEALOUS!!Cool

Surprising upsets to look forward to in 2011!!

Upsets happen in the NFL all the time. Weekly and some times more than one in a week. I decided since the season is about to begin, it is time to start calling some upsets. I'll call 1 for each week:

week 1:Cowboys over Jets-It can happen......
week 2:Browns over Colts-Hillis will put up huge #s!
week 3:Texans over Saints-I'm remembering Lynch owning Saints D.
week 4:Lions over Cowboys(can you consider that an upset?)
week 5:Chiefs over Colts-one of the worst rush defenses in the league vs the best ground game
week 6:Texans over Ravens-Expecting Flacco doesn't have a good day.
week 7:Bucs over Bears-I like the Bucs D!!
week 8:Dolphins over NYG-not really a good upset week, but I think this is the most likely to happen.
week 9:Chargers over Packers-Rivers just has the better day over Rodgers.
week 10:Lions over Bears-Reminding me of Calvin Johnson TD no call.....
week 11:Chargers over Bears-Bears offense will struggle.
week 12:Eagles over Patriots-Brady has a bad day....
week 13:Lions over Saints-I think Brees will be under pressure all day!!
week 14:Chiefs over Jets-I don't like the Jets front 7 this year.
week 15:Bengals over Rams-4th place team beating a playoff contender.......
week 16:Browns over Ravens-Almost happened last year......
week 17:Lions over Packers-I expect Lions to win 1 game next year vs the Packers.

I didn't do some rivalry games in this for the simple fact they were upsets last season such as Texans over Colts. I don't consider Jets over NE, Bears over Packers, Bucs over ATL/NO, ect upsets. Many may be shocked, some will whine, and others will say this is a bash fest. It isn't intended to bash one team or another. It is intended to hear others opinions and see some of their upset calls.
