The Cincinnati Bengals are coming off of two straight losses, both in the AFC. One of the losses was to AFC North rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers, putting a dent in the Bengals playoff hopes. The Bengals can try to get back on the winning track this week however, as they travel to St. Louis to take on the 2-11 Rams. Rookie quarterback Andy Dalton is in the running for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year after helping lead the Bengals to a 7-6 record and being in the thick of the AFC playoff hunt.
The St. Louis Rams are coming off another disappointing loss that say quarterback Sam Bradford and the offensive unit as a whole struggled. The Rams have lost the last four games, being beaten handily in three of the last four. The Rams have nothing left to play for but pride at this point, and their head coach Steve Spagnuolo who's on the hot seat after a 2-11 start to the season after nearly winning the division in 2010. The Rams can also play the role of spoiler, knocking down the Bengals in the AFC Wild Card race.
