Today's meeting between the Cardinals and Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium is essentially a playoff game. Both teams still have a shot at a Wild Card berth, but only if they keep winning. The Bengals need a win and a loss by the New York Jets (playing the crosstown Giants) to regain control of the AFC's sixth seed.
But the Cardinals have shown a feisty ability to win with their backs against the wall. The Bengals hope that WR A.J. Green will remain healthy enough to get them into the postseason.
