The Orange and Black Insider Bengals podcast: The Home Stretch

Cincinnati is oh-so-close to an improbable playoff berth, but they face arguably the toughest game on the schedule this week in the visiting Kansas City Chiefs.

The Cincinnati Bengals grabbed another huge victory within the AFC North, pounding the decimated Baltimore Ravens at Paul Brown Stadium last Sunday. The game very well could have decided the division, but there are still two messy weeks to sort through, as the AFC playoff bracket becomes less opaque.

Patrick Mahomes and the conference powerhouse Kansas City Chiefs come to town this week, putting forth another barometer game for this up-and-coming Bengals team. With that matchup on the horizon, there is a lot to talk about on this week’s podcast.

What’s the power shift in the AFC North? Can Cincinnati make waves in the postseason, should they get there?

These topics and a bunch more were discussed on this week’s show! Here are some of the areas of discussion this week:

  • What do we make of the remarks/reactions from Wink Martindale, John Harbaugh and Bart Scott before and after the result of Week 16?
  • Willie Anderson is on the short list of finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. We talk about why he’s deserving of Canton enshrinement.
  • Joe Burrow’s recent play has been reminiscent of his final year at LSU. Some PFF data points to this notion.
  • Should the Bengals play it methodical, or uber-aggressive against the high-powered Chiefs this week?
  • And more.
