Despite trailing most of the game, the Cincinnati Bengals took a late lead against Pittsburgh when A.J. McCarron hit A.J. Green for a 25-yard go-ahead score.
Authentic Youth Marcell Dareus Jersey It was quite the comeback for the Bengals after they entered the fourth quarter trailing 15-0 and had mustered very little on offense. That started to change early, with the Bengals chipping away on two scoring drives. That left them trailing 15-10 and set up the go-ahead TD to Green.
Kids Derek Carr Jersey Even the go-ahead drive wasn’t without a close call. The Bengals converted a fourth down just three plays prior to the 25-yard strike to Green.
How they got here: Kansas City has won its last 10 games thanks to the steady and cautious right arm of Alex Smith and consistently good defense. The Chiefs also field a strong special teams unit and don’t turn the ball over much.
How they got here: Andrew Luck becoming a human pi?ata and only playing in seven games this season created a window for the Texans, who enter the playoffs riding a three-game win streak. They are also winners of seven of their last nine. Their defense has morphed into one of the league’s best, which allowed the Texans to feast on a weak AFC South.
Why they’ll make the Super Bowl: It’s hard to say. Along with being a stud of a dancer, J.J. Watt is also a superhuman football player who led the league in sacks this year for the second time in his career. With Whitney Mercilus (12 sacks), he now has a running mate who can take advantage of all that attention he draws. Maybe the Texans defensive line, which also features 2014 No. 1 pick Jadeveon Clowney, can wreak enough havoc to make up for everything the offense is lacking.
