6. Cincinnati (6-5)

Remaining opponents winning percentage: .491 (27-28)

Potential flies in the ointment: Four of five remaining opponents (San Diego, Dallas, Pittsburgh and Baltimore) are still in the playoff hunt to varying degrees.

Outlook: I predicted the Bengals would make the playoffs in the preseason. Although I hate doubting Pittsburgh’s resolve, I’m sticking to my guns. After a four-game losing streak, Cincinnati has righted the ship by beating the New York Giants, Kansas City and Oakland by a 93-29 margin. The end of the season will be rough with games at Pittsburgh and home against Baltimore. But as important as those matchups against AFC North rivals will be, a good indication of whether the Bengals are truly for real comes the next two weeks when facing the Chargers and Cowboys. A quality team should be able to win both against inferior opposition. - Alex Marvez (AP Photo/Tom Uhlman)
