As the Cincinnati Bengals kickoff for the final time for the 2011 regular season in front of a packed Paul Brown Stadium, they are left with a "win and you’re in" scenario. A Jets loss earlier this afternoon also helped Cincinnati because now if the Bengals lose the game, they’re still in the 2011 NFL Playoffs with a loss by the Raiders or the Broncos.

But first all that matters is Cincinnati’s performance against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Following a Mike Nugent touchback to start the game, the Bengals defense held the Ravens to a third and one with around 14 minutes remaining in the first quarter. Flacco hands off to fullback Vonta Leach, tackled at the line of scrimmage but enough for the first down.

On the following play Ray Rice explodes through the right side of the hole for 70 yards and a touchdown to give the Ravens a 7-0 lead with 12:58 remaining in the first quarter.
