Bengals in the NFL Playoff Picture: Week 13

The Bengals can rally to make the NFL Playoffs. Will they do it is a whole ‘nother question.

The Cincinnati Bengals may be down, but they’re not quite out just yet when it comes to the NFL Playoffs.

Entering Week 13, the Bengals sit just a game back of the Indianapolis Colts, who currently hold the AFC No. 7 seed if the season ended today.

And wouldn’t you know it, the Bengals host the Colts in Week 14. Depending on how the Bengals’ Week 13 game vs. the Jags goes, combined with other teams like Houston and Denver possibly losing, we could see Cincy back in one of the Wild Card spots within the next two weeks.

So yeah, there’s still hope, even if it’s not great at the moment.

With that in mind, here’s a look at the latest standings for the 2023 NFL postseason.
