They'll face one of the best teams in the National Football League this Sunday.

Bengals have lost 7 straight wild-card games.

He said he did not address the report with the players or assistant coaches before the game. Of the Bengals eight losses, four have come by four points or less.

Green is a six-time Pro Bowler, but he will be up against a tough challenge in Rhodes. He suffered a dislocated knee and a torn ACL when he went down during a noncontact drill at practice just two weeks before the 2016 season was set to begin.

The Vikings have allowed only one 100-yard receiver this season (Detroit's Marvin Jones), and Rhodes will look to continue that pattern Sunday when he likely matches up against a talented Green. The Vikings are in a great position to make a run in the playoffs. They drove 75 yards in nine plays on the opening drive, which was capped by Murray's 1-yard touchdown run. That's when they turned things over to their backup quarterback, inviting what might have been the loudest roar of the season at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Trump reportedly tells CDC: You can't use these 7 words
According to CNN , "Alternative word choices reportedly were presented in some cases". President Trump's administration has created a list of no-nos for the CDC.

Minnesota wrapped up the division for just the second time this decade, having also claiming it in 2015. It started with the Vikings defense shutting down the Bengals, Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon's big days, Teddy Bridgewater's return to game action, and the Vikings clinching the NFC North.

The Bengals have averaged 79.4 rushing yards per game this season. Griffen has 61 career sacks, good for seventh all-time in franchise history.

It's no secret that Bengals owner Mike Brown is close to Jackson, and wanted him to take over for Lewis when the longtime head coach was done.

They're still hurting this week heading to Minnesota, a place where the Bengals have never been victorious in five previous visits.

Lewis accepted the job on January 14, 2003, when the Bengals were coming off the worst season in franchise history (2-14).
