    The 8-1 AFC South Champions to-be Houston Texans (kcstlmang ) visit the 7-2 Bengals of Cincinnati (Andyman33 ) who currently sit atop of the AFC North by a game.

    The Texans come into this one on a 7 game wining streak, not having lost since Week 2. They are red hot right now just taking down then undefeated, Denver Broncos. This is one of the high powered offenses in the TMFL and the game vs the Bengals should be no different. Texans are lead by Ryan Mallet who is Top 5 in passing and leads the league in TDs with 21. Mark Ingram keeps this team balanced as he's rushed for 713 yards and 6 TD this year.

    The Bengals are on a little tear themselves, winning their last 6 games after losing 2 in a row to the Jets and the Steelers. This is a pretty big game for the Bengals to keep their one game cushion on the AFC North. There is no secret to this offense, Gio Bernard is the key and has 14 touchdowns on the ground this year making is push for league MVP. These guys do not turn the ball over as Andy dalton has only thrown 1 INT in 9 games.

    I think this will be a high scoring game as both teams like to put up some points and have the weapons to do so. I think the Texans are hot right now but they get checked by the home field advantage of the Bengals. Turnovers are the difference in this one. Mallet throws 3 picks, Dalton throws 1 and the Bengals take this in a thriller, 34-31.

    Game Ball goes to Gio Bernard: 125 yards 2 TDs

    Even the SHARPS say this one will be close...

    This one will be a shoot out, the Bengals are super pass happy which could result in turnovers; but they're at home... This one will come down to which team can capitalize the most of the other teams mistakes. I'll take the Bengals at home, 41-38.

    Well I played cpu and damn I hate playing all madden lol. In any case we were stuffed at the end of regulation on 3rd down at the 2 and had to settle for a fg. Then lost in ot. It wasn't without a loss from r the Texans though as they lost mallett after a huge hit. And bengals also lost their starting lolb for a period as well
