DeAngelo Williams running out of time for wild-card return

Jan 09, 2016, 23:54

Back in 2005, the Bengals had a quarterback dilemma during the Wild Card game.

Toussaint was promoted off the Steelers' practice squad in late November, and offensive coordinator Todd Haley said Thursday he feels better about potentially heading into a playoff game with him than the team felt a year ago, when it went into a wild card game against Baltimore with a starting running back, Ben Tate, who had been signed that week after Le'Veon Bell suffered a knee injury.

The Bengals have gone 52-27-1 in the past five regular seasons, but they are labeled as striped head cases because of repeated failures in January.

What we think will happen: It should be a low scoring game and Andy Reid should have some matchup advantages against the Texans defense. He's only player in National Football League history with at least 125 catches, 1,800 yards receiving and 10 TD catches.... The Steelers aren't likely to take a lot of deep shots against the Bengals defense because of the two-deep coverages they like to run, so Bryant will likely have to do a lot of his damage underneath while making sure to catch anything deep thrown his way.

- Lewis is tied with the Giants' Steve Owen (1939-50) for most consecutive playoff losses with one team.

Is there a problem here? He rushed for 907 yards, his most since 2009, and 11 touchdowns and kept the Steelers' running game afloat after LeVeon Bell was lost for the season after tearing both the MCL and PCL in his right knee in Week 8.

Lewis was asked what it would mean to him personally to win a playoff game given his 0-6 record.

The interceptions have been a particular problem lately. This makes them lean on that phase of the game even more.

With Andy Dalton unavailable for this game, the Bengals' pass game won't be at its finest. The Steelers will make it five straight years of wild card weekend exits for the rivals from Ohio. Roethlisberger referred to himself as a "gunslinger" on his radio show.

Ben Roethlisberger led the Steelers over the Bengals in December. "It is real hard, because he never gives up". Roethlisberger's longest completion in the first game went for only 25 yards. They put that streak up against the Chiefs streak of postseason futility, as they haven't won a playoff game since 1994 with Joe Montana at quarterback.

"For the first couple of snaps, it kind of reminded me of my first high school game", McCarron said. "It's all or nothing". Viewers hoping to live stream the game from their laptops, tablets, and mobile devices can stream the game at CBSSports.com or the CBS Sports app - and let's not forget the game is also available for live streaming on Xbox One! "Every season is a different situation - the health of the team, where you play". Still, the one player on their offense who can perform no matter who throws the ball is A.J.

Cincinnati also has committed 13 turnovers, while forcing only two, in its past four playoff games, including a minus-8 margin in the second half.
