Q: Do we think we get another nail-biter of a game to finish out this postseason or does one team just dominate the other?
A: I think we get another nail-biter and that’s mostly because the Bengals are a tough team to blow out. Coincidentally, the most recent instance happened when the Rams wore their royal blue throwbacks against the Patriots in Super Bowl LIII. The other team to wear an alternate was the 1994 49ers, who wore a 75th anniversary throwback all season and in the Super Bowl. Last year, the Buccaneers were the home team playing the Super Bowl in their home stadium and they still decided to wear their road white uniform.

With the Bengals playing in the Super Bowl this year, that should give a lot of bad teams hope that they might be able to turn things around and get to the big game next year.
