Matt Schaub out for the season - Implications for the Bengals?

A couple of things. First, doesn't this make everyone feel a LITTLE bit better about Leon Hall? Things could be MUCH MUCH worse. Second, what does this do to the AFC playoff picture?

The Texans seemingly had a strangle-hold on the AFC South before this. But with a Tennessee win and diminished prospects for big wins down the stretch, it might throw that division into AFC West territory, where a 9-7 team comes out on top. It also opens the door back up for Tennessee, who we have a tie-breaker over (a tie-breaker Baltimore does not have, by the way). Not to mention, our home game against Houston in week 14 suddenly looks a LOT more winnable with Matt Leinart under center whereas before a lot of people were looking at that as at least a very possible loss, if not a probable one.

Throw in the Jets and Bills both laying eggs yesterday, and this could open up the possibility of the AFC North sending three teams to the playoffs.
