The Cincinnati Bengals kept their playoff hopes alive on Monday night as they knocked off the Jacksonville Jaguars, 34-31.

It was an exciting game all around that featured breakout performances from Jake Browning and Chase Brown. It is actually three other Bengals players who earned the honors of being named to the PFF Team of Week 13.

Making the cut from the Bengals squad are defensive lineman DJ Reader, cornerback Mike Hilton, and kicker Evan McPherson.

Reader on the night totaled six tackles and one QB hit, while Hilton added five tackles (including two tackles for loss) and a pass deflection on the evening.

McPherson was the obvious hero of the night, as he knocked down the game-winning field goal in overtime for the Bengals to leave Jacksonville with some much-needed momentum. He also hit a 54-yarder near the end of regulation that almost gave the Bengals the win before OT.

Now, the team will turn their attention to the Indianapolis Colts, who come to Paycor Stadium on Sunday. It will take another team effort to pick up the win, but another solid performance from these three would be very handy.

Going to be a big one that will have a major impact on the Bengals' quest to make the NFL Playoffs.
