The Bengals (11-5) are 8-0 at home and get to host a playoff game. That was in large part to the play of Andy Dalton who was all over the place today. Dalton threw for two touchdowns, ran for another and set a pair of Bengals passing records on Sunday, leading Cincinnati to a 34-17 victory that eliminated the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens.
“We’re playing with a lot of confidence right now,” said Dalton, who was 21 of 36 for 281 yards with two touchdowns and four interceptions. “The last couple of years we played on the road. For us to have a home game here, it’ll be a great environment.
“We’re ready for the playoffs to start.”
Jay Gruden is going to be a very hot commodity for coaching positions, and I would not expect him to be back with the Bengals if one is offered.
