Root for the Cincinatti Bengals (7 - 4) to defeat the San Diego Chargers (5 - 6) - The Bengals are still the favorites to win the AFC North, unless they collapse with a tough remaining schedule including games against the Colts, Steelers, and Ravens. Meanwhile, the Chargers kept their playoff hopes alive by beating the Chiefs last week. The Dolphins have a head-to-head tiebreak advantage over both teams in this game, but things could get interesting if the Bengals collapse down the stretch and another AFC North makes a run. However, assuming the Bengals are future AFC North winners, it makes sense to root for the Chargers to lose this game and fall behind in the wildcard race.
