New York Jets at Cincinnati Bengals

This is going to be the first in an 11 part series – one for each game of the NFL playoffs. Bryan took care of the predictions, no matter how much I disagree with them. I’ll leave those alone and just do a game by game preview. This one is obviously about the Jets/Bengals game, which makes sense, seeing as it’s the first game of the postseason.

I want to start this one by saying that I believe this will be a ridiculously close and hard fought game. Don’t let last week’s game fool you.

Instead of the name on the back of the jersey reading “C. JOHNSON” like it has, it will have “OCHOCINCO” starting this season. In the last week of August last year, right before the beginning of the 2008 season, Johnson Ochocinco had his name legally changed from Chad Javon Johnson to Chad Javon Ochocinco in Broward County, Florida. Ever since then he has been trying to get the NFL to let him wear his new legal name on the back of his jersey. He finally got his wish… kinda. Continue reading
