I really don’t know why I do it… read the forums on ESPN I mean. While I don’t expect a typical football fan to let rationale be their guide, I would like to believe that fantasy takes a back seat to reality… A typical Bengal fan’s post in the ESPN Charger/Bengal playoff matchup forum:
Philip Rivers is good, but the Bengals have talent across the board. 37-17 Bengals.
I’m not sure what they are smoking over there in Ohio, but it sure seems like it is some experimental grade Kush. I see the score a lot closer, somewhere in the 20-17 mark and it really could go either way. Sure, it might be a blowout, but it isn’t likely.
Of course, I’m just tickled that the Chargers are even playing football in January. If they can play up to the level of the opponent, I think San Diego will find itself playing next weekend in Foxboro.
