Following an impressive streak, the Cincinnati Bengals have now dropped back-to-back contests, and both to AFC rivals.
The loss to the Baltimore Ravens pretty much killed all hope of winning the AFC North Division, and some believe they can also kiss the playoffs goodbye.
Nonetheless, that’s not the case with former NFL WR Greg Jennings, who believes that they can still get a Wild Card spot.
In the latest edition of “The Carton Show,” Jennings pointed out that multiple teams could still make the playoffs despite having five losses, and while Joe Burrow’s injury will obviously be the biggest factor in their future, there’s no reason to think they can’t finish the season strong.
"I don't think the Bengals playoff hopes are dead. They still have a chance."

Truth be told, Zac Taylor’s team has proved that they can get hot at any given time and beat pretty much every single enemy that comes their way.
Then again, their margin for error is pretty much close to zero at this point in the season, especially considering that they still have two divisional matchups with the Pittsburgh Steelers and one with the Cleveland Browns ahead of them.
The Bengals also have the Kansas City Chiefs, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Minnesota Vikings on deck, so being flawless the rest of the way will be quite easier said than done.
But if Burrow’s wrist injury isn’t as serious and he doesn’t miss any time, this team could still have an opportunity to pull off a bit of a miracle and sneak their way into the promised land.NEXT: Ravens HC Questions The Play That Injured Mark Andrews
