cincys final 5 opponents- at pitt, vs hou, vs arizona, at stl, and vs balt. at pitt will no doubt be tough, but who knows if polamalu will play. lets say cincy does lose that game, thats 5 losses.
vs houston in cincy, with tj yates playing, despite how good the texans d has been and how they can run the ball, cincys d is also good and they can run the ball also, and they can throw the ball, something houston can not anymore. i think cincy wins that game.
vs arizona, who even knows who is starting for arizona whether its skelton or kolb, they are screwed anyway. cincy will win that game.
at stl. stl looks awful, nuff said.
final game vs balt- this can either be the easiest game of the year, or a really tough game. if balt wins out until that game ( cleveland 2x, indy, at sd) which is very possible, as long as pitt drops one of the games( most likely this week vs cincy or at sf, prob the latter despite that i am not that impressed with san fran) they will have the division locked up. how hard do they go at that game? luckily, the pats also have a breeze through the final 5 games, so they still may need to play that game tough for homefield.
either way, i dont see cincy going any worse than 3-2 in those 5 games leaving them at 10-6. the jets right now already have 5 losses, do you really think they are going to win the final 5 games, especially the way they have played of late? it has not been just one game, its looking like a trend. d is vastly overrated, offense seems very inconsistent.
they also have not been able to win away from home this year for the most part, they only have 1 true home game the rest of the year ( giant game is a home game for the jets, but i dont consider that a true home game.) we shall see. taco has got to play better though.
And speaking of things I said, if you look at my old posts, when we were 3-3, I guaranteed we'd win 10 games and make the playoffs, and the Bills would be no better than 8-8. Some people on here said I was crazy, but how is it looking now? I expect to beat the Redskins and the Cheifs, and be controlling our own destiny at 8-5.
the bengals are 7-4 now, i can see them at worst 8-5 going into week 15 like the jets. broncos and titans i dont have a good read on, way to shaky. buffalos run d is brutal, and if tenn can run the ball like they did yesterday vs tampa, they should go to 7-5 after this week vs buffalo. denver is playing minn this week, they should be able to win with their defense, but who knows.
I never disagreed that the Jets could win 10 games, or that the Bills were bad. Why don't you bring up some post that we did disagree on? How are the talented Eagles and Chargers doing for you? How is that division title looking?
i would deff give the texans the edge usually, but tj yates makes their passing game so much worse, so cincy can stack 8 in the box and limit foster and tate and make yates beat them. its the nfl anything can happen, but i see cincy winning that game, but who the heck knows.
I never said the Cowboys were lousy. I said they were average, and stand by that. They are playing better than they were earlier in the season, but I don't get impressed with close wins against bad teams like you do.
