5 Things the Cincinnati Bengals Still Have to Fix Before Making the Playoffs

The Cincinnati Bengals moved one step closer to a playoff berth on Thursday Night Football with a 34-13 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Despite how lopsided the score looks, the game was actually much closer and exposed some of the problems that the Bengals have on their way to a playoff run—one that starts in earnest next week when they visit the Pittsburgh Steelers in what amounts to a winner-takes-all matchup for the final wild-card spot in the AFC.

Even with a win against the Steelers, nothing is guaranteed for Cincinnati, as it will likely have to defeat Baltimore in Week 17 to really cinch the final playoff spot unless the New York Jets stumble at least once in their final four games of the season.

Whether Cincinnati makes it into the playoffs for the second consecutive season or not, there is plenty for this young team to work on prior to the playoffs.
