NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take the Bengals. According to latest NFL trends, Dallas is 3-13 ATS L16 on fieldturf and 7-18-1 ATS L26 in December. The Bengals are back in the AFC North title race thanks to the emergence of RB BenJarvus Green-Elis. He was held to 69 yards or fewer in six of his first nine games. Over the last three weeks, Green-Ellis has run for 348 yards and two TDs, becoming the first Cincy runner to rush for three straight 100-yard games since Corey Dillon in 1999. Cincy (7-5) is averaging 179.3 yards per game on the ground in that stretch. They take on a mediocre Dallas (6-6) team that outscored a bad Eagles’ team, 21-9 in the 4th quarter to win, 38-33, on Sunday night.
