Bengals: Look to bounce back after NFL Week 15 loss

Cincinnati fans have to be feeling a little anxious as their home-town hero’s dropped a 30-20 decision to arch rival Pittsburgh during NFL Week 15 action. Couple that with a showdown against the Super Bowl Champion Baltimore Ravens looming large in Week 17 and their concerns are justified. Though this may have been a “look past” game a few weeks ago, the Queen City Cats must take care of business on their home turf against the Vikings today.

Minnesota Vikings: Too little – too late for NFC North cellar dwellers

Despite earning two wins and a tie in their last four games, it’s a “too little – too late” scenario for the Vikings 2013 NFL season. Minnesota scored 21 fourth quarter points as they pummeled Philadelphia 48-30 in the second to last game to be played at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome last weekend. The win was proceeded by a 29-26 loss on the road in Baltimore, a 23-20 home win over Chicago, and a 26-26 tie in Green Bay against the Packers.
