Tecmo Bowl Futures - Ravens Vs. Bengals

You can go anywhere on the web and find what the experts think the outcome of any game will be. I have my own expert. She was born in 1991 and has had my heart ever since. Her name, Tecmo Super Bowl.

In the final game of the season, the Bengals face the Ravens for position in the playoffs. For the Ravens, they need to win to stay in the hunt. For the Bengals, a win and some other teams losses mean they can have the number 2 seed.

Lets see what Tecmo thinks is going to happen...


The Ravens start with the ball and have no trouble moving down the field. Joe Flacco hits Dallas Clark for the touchdown. What may come back to haunt though is the Ravens miss the extra point.

On the Bengals first possession, Andy Dalton throws an interception. Michael Johnson attempts to wreak havoc on Flacco.

The Ravens again move the ball through the air and this time Torrey Smith finds the end zone.

The Ravens get a couple first downs to keep the clock ticking and the Bengals chances look slim. And then James Harrison happens. Harrison forces a fumble and returns it to give the Bengals great field position with under 40 seconds left in the game.
