NFL Odds: AFC North rivals hone in on Wild Card

Although it’s yet to be determined whether the Cincinnati Bengals will have enough in the tank to surpass a struggling Baltimore Ravens team in the AFC North standings, they can do themselves a favor by taking down their division rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers, this Sunday and creeping one step closer to a wild card berth.

As the Ravens and Steelers have fallen around them, the Bengals have thrived. With offseason addition BenJarvus Green-Ellis playing every bit as dominantly as the club hoped for in the summer, and A.J. Green continuing to blossom into one of the game’s top young receivers, it’s no wonder they’ve started to make a statement on the NFL futures toward the end of the season.

The Bengals might not top anybody’s ticket any time soon, but their 50/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl this late in the season are a testament to how far they’ve come. Having stirred in the wild card race in three of the past four seasons, pressure will be on the franchise to take their performance to the next level: the Bengals haven’t actually won a playoff game since 1990, when Green was two years old.

In the Sunday night clash against Pittsburgh, however, it won’t be as easy as simply showing up and putting on a uniform. The Steelers, of course, have been a mainstay in the playoffs in eight of the past 11 years and are just one game behind the Bengals in the win column. You don’t need the NFL odds to tell you that they won’t be too willing to cough such an opportunity up.
