First, the bad news. Dalton’s injury opens the door for Pittsburgh (who isn’t even in the playoff picture at the moment) to possibly win the AFC North. Even if Cincinnati wins the North, their chances of going to Super Bowl are none and none without a healthy Dalton.
The good news?
We will possibly get a chance to see Katherine Webb again.
To the uninitiated, Webb is the wife of new Cincinnati Bengals starting quarterback A.J. McCarron. Currently, Webb is expecting her first child McCarron. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if she found her way in front of a camera during McCarron’s run as starting quarterback.
She orginally became well-known following Alabama’s trouncing of Notre Dame during the 2013 BCS title game.
Since that incident took place, Webb gained some notoriety after Brent Musburger verbally drooled all over her on national TV.
Anyhow, I’m totally distracted. Let’s get to this week’s postseason rundown.
