The Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys both need wins to stay in the thick of the playoff race.
The Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys both need a win to stay in the thick of the playoff hunt when they face off on Sunday. Both teams currently are on the outside looking in, but can still have a good chance of reaching the playoffs if they win out.
The Bengals (7-5) are currently tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the final Wild Card spot in the AFC, but the Steelers currently hold the tiebreaker. Cincinnati has won four-straight games (thanks in part to three straight games against the AFC West) and hope to continue their streak when they welcome the Cowboys to town on Sunday.
The Cowboys (6-6) are one game behind the New York Giants in the NFC East and one game behind the Seattle Seahawks for the final Wild Card spot in the NFC. Dallas hopes the return of DeMarco Murray, who rushed for 83 yards in their Dec. 2 win over the Eagles, can bolster a rushing game that ranks dead last in the NFL at 82.4 yards per game:
