    Default Is the Bengals game a must win?

    We are AFC South champs courtesy of the Jag's loss. What do you think? A must win tomorrow night v. Cincy? Why or why not? What do you expect to happen?

    Well... losing 4 out of 5 this late in the game isn't going to inspire much confidence heading into the post season.

    What we really need to see is this undersized defense to at least find some heart and fire and make a few plays to give everyone some hope.

    No time like the present to start that.

    Yep.

    It's a must win. We need some confidence back in this team. Confidence can help, a lot.

    We need to get the offense back together and the defense needs to make some plays.

    We need a win.

    It's going to be a complete shoot-out. Cincy's defense has played amazing the past 2 weeks, but no longer.

    The "must win" designation is tenuous here for me in the sense that if we defeat the Bengals only to drop one or two of our remaining games, what will it really have shown?

    Obviously, in the one game at a time world of the NFL you could easily say every game is a must win for a team in the Colt's scenario. Playoff position in flux and a late season spurt of uninspiring play.

    Of our three remaining it's the most statement type of game since the Bengals are resurgent. I think it's the one that could do the most for our psyche with a victory. Assuming we don't follow it up by laying an egg down the line in Houston.

    It's a lot more of a "must win" game for the Bengals, who are fighting for a wild card with a very tough finishing schedule.

    The Colts are in, of course, and at some point they need to turn the D around but they have some more chances to do it.

    It's a "must-win" game for both teams. For us, so that we still can get the much needed bye in the playoffs, and for the Bengals just to get to the playoffs.

    That will be an exciting game.

    Go Colts

    It's more of a must play better game. Winning is important, too, though.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    I want this one badly.

    However, if we win 63-56, I won't be nearly as happy as if we win 10-7.

    Yes, we need to win this and the Houston game to re-instill some confidence in the fanbase before we lose to Baltimore or San Diego or New England in the playoffs.
