Andrew Luck will need to break a winless streak against Tom Brady to earn his first Super Bowl appearance.
Arguably the Cincinnati Bengals’ best player, wide receiver A.J. Green is iffy for Sunday’s playoff game in Indianapolis against the Colts. He didn’t practice on Friday and hasn’t cleared the league’s concussion protocol after suffering the injury in Week 17 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. If Green can’t go, the pressure might double for the Bengals to win their first postseason contest since 1990.
The Indianapolis Colts will face the Cincinnati Bengals in the wild card week of the 2014 NFL Playoffs without A.Q. Shipley and Hugh Thornton on the offensive line.
The Cincinnati Bengals haven’t won an NFL playoff game since January 6, 1990. They beat the Houston Oilers—right there, that tells you it was a long time ago—by a 41-14 score in the wild-card round of the AFC playoffs.

The primary focal point of pretty much every football team is the quarterback. Some teams have an elite quarterback they want to keep around for as long as possible.

The Chargers and Saints further proved the old adage for the NFL playoffs: “Just Get In.”
There will be no local television blackouts in the NFL this weekend.
Manti Te’o is ready for his first NFL playoff appearance. He talks about not freezing, and it has nothing to do with the weather the San Diego Chargers could face in Cincinnati on Sunday.
Every game this weekend has fascinating plots, from Cincinnati trying to break their playoff futility to the Frozen Tundra earning its sobriquet with a 30-below wind chill expected Sunday.
