Eagles Fall to Cowboys in Overtime

The Philadelphia Eagles had a two game winning streak snapped in a costly 29-23 overtime road loss to the Cowboys last week. The Eagles are now two games back of Dallas for first place in the NFC East, and one game out of the Wildcard. Carson Wentz played well in the defeat, notching 228 passing yards with three TD’s. The third-year QB has tossed five touchdowns in his last two games, and he has 3074 passing yards with a 21:7 TD to INT ratio in 11 games on the season.

That puts Nick Foles up against his former Rams team with the Eagles needing a miracle. At 6-7, three wins would likely earn them the six seed in the NFC playoff race but they’ll need to beat the 11-2 Rams in L.A., the 9-4 Houston Texans, and the 6-7 Washington Redskins on the road in order to qualify. It’s a daunting task for the team even if they were at 100 percent; instead, the odds are stacked against the Eagles even mounting a Super Bowl defense.

They’ll run into an angry Rams team looking to prove themselves after an ugly loss to the Chicago Bears on the road last Sunday night. It cost them control of their own destiny as the team seeks home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. In order to have a chance, they’ll likely need to sweep their final three games with the Eagles their only serious obstacle. After that looms two opponents, the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers, with a combined record of 6-20.

Can the Rams take care of business? Or will Foles rise up to create another edition of the Philly special as he auditions for a role elsewhere in 2019?

Three Things To Watch

1. Can a ragtag bunch of substitute Eagles overcome a slew of injuries?

The Eagles have plenty of reasons they’ve fallen far behind the Rams in 2018. But one of them was left completely to the football gods. Just check this week’s injury report, where not a single Ram is listed with a physical problem as of Thursday’s writing. They’ve had a few setbacks, most notably wide receiver Cooper Kupp out for the year after tearing his ACL, but have most of their top-tier players in mint condition 14 weeks into the year.

The Eagles running game continues to struggle in the absence of Jay Ajayi. Josh Adams leads the way with 412 rushing yards on a rushing offense that ranks 28th in the NFL. Eagles’ receiving leader Zach Ertz only brought in 38 receiving yards last week, and the 28-year old tight end has 1016 receiving yards on the season.

The Eagles offense is leaning on their passing game heavily and as a result, they have not been able to generate consistent offense. The Philadelphia defense has dealt with several injuries to their secondary which has impacted their pass defense which ranks 30th in the NFL. They have played well in three straight games considering the plethora of injuries. The Eagles are scoring an average of 21.6 points, ranking them 21st in the NFL. They are holding opponents to 22.7 points, placing them 13th overall. Philadelphia stands at 2-4 on the road this season.

Patriots vs Steelers

Patriots vs Steelers odds, line: Picks and top predictions from expert who’s 11-3 on New England, Pittsburgh games.SportsLine’s RJ White has his finger on the pulse of the Patriots and Steelers.A pivotal AFC showdown highlights the Week 15 NFL schedule as the Pittsburgh Steelers host the New England Patriots. Kickoff is set for 4:25 p.m. ET from Heinz Field.

CLICK HERE TO WATCH NOW

The Steelers (7-5-1) have seen their lead in the AFC North trimmed to a half-game over the Ravens on the heels of a three-game slide that has included two losses to sub-.500 teams.  The Patriots (9-4) also are seeking to get back on track after last week’s loss to the Dolphins on the Miami Miracle.

In the latest Patriots vs. Steelers odds, the Patriots are favored by 2.5 after the line nearly reached a pick’em. The over-under or total points scored has climbed to 54 from an opening mark of 50. Before you lock in your Patriots vs. Steelers picks and predictions, check out what SportsLine expert R.J. White has to say.

White was SportsLine’s most profitable NFL analyst last season and returned $100 bettors a profit of nearly $2,000. He has emerged as their top NFL handicapper again this season and is on an astounding 38-14 run with his NFL spread picks entering Week 15.

The renowned prognosticator has cashed big in the prestigious Las Vegas SuperContest two of the last three years. Now, he has turned his attention to this crucial AFC matchup, and White has impressive credentials involving these clubs. He boasts a mark of 11-3 on his last 14 picks involving the Steelers or Patriots. Anyone who has followed him is way up.

Just last week, White advised SportsLine members that Pittsburgh (-10) was due for a letdown as it visited the struggling Raiders. He recommended a play on the underdog, and just as White predicted, an inspired Oakland club pulled off a 24-21 upset win.

Now, White has analyzed Patriots vs. Steelers (stream live on fuboTV) from every angle and released a confident point-spread selection that is only available at SportsLine.

White knows the Steelers will be desperate to get back on track with a win following a stretch in which they have dropped two games to teams with losing records, sandwiched around a prime-time home loss in which they squandered a 16-point lead to the Chargers.

Last week, head coach Mike Tomlin received some heat surrounding the use of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who sat out most of the second half against Oakland with a rib injury. However, Roethlisberger is expected to play Sunday. The Steelers also have been consistent in these situations, as they are 6-2 against the spread coming off a straight-up loss. Running back James Conner is doubtful with an ankle injury, leaving Jaylen Samuels as the lead back. He had seven catches for 64 yards last week and added another 28 on the ground.

But just because the Steelers are at home and have historically rebounded well doesn’t mean they’ll stay within the spread.

White also knows that recent history is not only on New England’s side in its rivalry with Pittsburgh, but data also suggests this is the time of year when the Patriots are at their best. They have covered in four straight Week 15 games and are on a 9-2 against the spread run in December games. They have also covered five of their last six visits to Heinz Field.

Although the final play will be the lasting memory in the loss to Miami, the Patriots still had several positives to build on. Quarterback Tom Brady threw for 358 yards with three touchdowns in a turnover-free performance for the Patriots. They also had the edge in time of possession and went 9-for-16 on third-down attempts.

We can tell you White is leaning toward the Over, but his much stronger play is on the side. He has dissected Patriots vs. Steelers, crunched the stats and found a crucial X-factor that causes one side of the spread to hit hard. He’s only sharing what it is, and who to back, at SportsLine.

Who covers in Patriots vs. Steelers? And what crucial X-factor makes one side of the spread a must-back? Visit SportsLine now to see which side you need to jump on Sunday, all from the top NFL analyst who’s hitting an astounding 79 percent of his spread picks involving these teams.

Seahawks vs 49ers

The 49ers welcome back Matt Breida after missing a week with a sprained ankle. D.J. Reed will get his second straight start at nickel back, while Antone Exum and Marcell Harris will start at free and strong safety, respectively. The team will also have wide receivers Marquise Goodwin and Dante Pettis this week, after both were listed as questionable on the final injury report.

49ers inactives: CB K’Waun Williams, S Jaquiski Tartt, RB Alfred Morris, S Tyree Robinson, OL Erik Magnuson, OL Shon Coleman, DL Sheldon Day

Seahawks inactives: RB Rashaad Penny, SS Maurice Alexander, CB Kalan Reed, LB K.J. Wright, C Joey Hunt, OG D.J. Fluker, DT Nazair Jones

There are only three more weeks of football left for the San Francisco 49ers and they now look to finish the series against the Seattle Seahawks. They met the Seahawks just two weeks ago in CenturyLink Field and were destroyed 43-16.

Despite the score, they showed they have the ability to beat the Seahawks; quarterback Nick Mullens threw for 400 yards and Jeff Wilson had a solid performance in place of the injured Matt Breida. This will be an afternoon game kicking off at 1:05 P.M. The game will air on FOX and you can see who gets it by looking at our broadcast map. Andrew Catalon and James Lofton will be calling the game.

The one thing the 49ers struggled with was turnovers. The offense would give the Seahawks great field position with turnovers and the 49ers defense allowed the running game to have their way. The 49ers are no longer in playoff contention but the Seahawks are and they need every win they can get.

The Seahawks are coming off an impressive win over the Minnesota Vikings where the defense clamped down on Kirk Cousins and allowed only 182 yards. The Seahawks defense also only allowed 58 yards rushing as well. They are getting momentum coming to Levi’s Stadium, but it should be noted last weeks game was in Seattle. And we all know the difference home/away is for that team.

For Week 15, the Seahawks will be without safety Maurice Alexander (concussion), running back Rashaad Penny (knee), and linebacker K.J. Wright (knee). Guard D.J. Fluker (hamstring) is doubtful.

The 49ers meanwhile will be without safety Jaquiski Tartt (Shoulder). Defensive end Cassius Marsh (concussion), linebacker Mark Nzeocha (groin), and cornerback K’Waun Williams(knee) are questionable.

Seattle (8-5) currently own one of the two Wild Card spots in the NFC. They control their own destiny and could potentially secure that postseason spot with a win today.

The Seahawks have won four games in a row after losing to the Rams a month ago. The defense has really come alive and only given up 23 combined points in their last two games.

San Francisco (3-10) and the Cardinals are currently the only NFC teams mathematically eliminated from the postseason already.

Last week the 49ers pulled off an upset win over the Broncos and showed some heart at home in an otherwise lost season. That win snapped a three-game losing streak.

Marcus Mariota and the Tennessee Titans have won two consecutive games to keep their playoff hopes alive.

The Titans (7-6) find themselves in a logjam in the playoff race after they dismantled the Jacksonville Jaguars 30-9 during Week 14. The Titans didn’t need any heroics from Mariota because running back Derrick Henry rushed for a franchise-record 238 yards and four touchdowns in the game. Henry also tied the NFL record with a 99-yard touchdown run in the game. Tight end Jonnu Smith and right tackle Jack Conklin were placed on injured reserve with knee injuries, ending their seasons.

The Giants (5-8) have a pretty good running back on their roster. Saquon Barkley ran for 170 yards and touchdown in the Giants 40-16 win over Washington in Week 14. Barkley became the first rookie in franchise history to rush for at least 1,000 yards in a season. Wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr., who missed the game against Washington with a quadriceps injury, is day-to-day.

Dolphins vs Vikings

The Dolphins and Vikings will be looking to keep their playoff hopes alive with a win on Sunday when the two teams go head-to-head in Minnesota.

Miami (7–6) is currently two spots out of a wildcard berth behind seventh-seeded Indianapolis, sixth-seeded Baltimore and fifth-seeded Los Angeles. The Dolphins are coming off of a wild 34–33 last-second win over New England, where two laterals and Rob Gronkowski’s botched tackle helped running back Kenyan Drake find the endzone. The win was the Dolphins’ second-straight and kept the team in the thick of the AFC playoff race heading into Week 15.

The Vikings (6–6–1) head into Sunday’s matchup after a disappointing 21–7 loss to Seattle on Monday Night Football. Minnesota’s offense once again struggled to establish the run and protect Kirck Cousins, recording less than 300 yards of total offense for the fourth time in five games.

The Vikings fired offensive coordinator John DeFilippo just 12 hours after Minnesota’s loss, and if the team hopes to stay put in the sixth seed, it’ll have to do something different against a confident Dolphins unit.

Cowboys vs Colts

Cowboys vs Colts odds, line: Picks, predictions from dialed-in expert who’s 5-0 on Dallas games.Emory Hunt has his finger on the pulse of Ezekiel Elliott and the Cowboys.

CLICK HERE TO WATCH NOW

The Dallas Cowboys and Indianapolis Colts are coming off wins over division rivals. Now, the streaking Cowboys go for their sixth straight win and a division crown when they visit playoff-hopeful Indianapolis on Sunday. Kickoff from Lucas Oil Stadium is at 1 p.m. ET. Dallas (8-5) has won five straight against the Eagles (twice), Falcons, Redskins, and Saints, and can wrap up the NFC East with a win.

Meanwhile, the Colts (7-6) need to victory to stay alive in the AFC playoff picture after the Texans won on Saturday. Sportsbooks list Indianapolis as a 3-point favorite, with the over-under for total points scored set at 47 in the latest Cowboys vs. Colts odds. Before you make any Cowboys vs. Colts picks and predictions, see what Dallas expert Emory Hunt picked.

Hunt, a former college running back who founded the Football Gameplan analysis site, has an uncanny feel for the Cowboys. He’s nailed five straight spread picks for or against Dallas, and 10 of 13 dating back to last season.

In Week 13, with Dallas getting a touchdown at home against the high-flying Saints, Hunt told his followers to back the Cowboys without hesitation. He said Dallas’ athletic defense would give New Orleans fits. The result: Cowboys 13, Saints 10 — an outright upset. Anyone who has followed him is way up.

Now, Hunt has spotted huge value in the Colts vs. Cowboys (stream live on fuboTV) line and locked in a strong point-spread pick. He’s only sharing it over at SportsLine. 

Hunt knows the Colts are a well-rounded team that’s supporting Andrew Luck (34 touchdowns, 13 interceptions) with strong pass protection and an underrated defense. In last Sunday’s 24-21 upset win in Houston, the Colts sacked Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson five times, held stud wideout DeAndre Hopkins to 36 yards and limited their division rival to 315 total yards. Indy has allowed just 15.3 points per game over its last four contests.

The Colts have covered four straight against winning teams, and the home team has covered four of the last five in this series. And whereas the Cowboys have won five straight, the Colts have been on a heater of their own, winning six of their last seven, including an impressive 37-5 victory against the Bills and a lopsided 38-10 win over the Titans.

But just because the Colts are at home and Luck looks as healthy as ever doesn’t mean they’ll cover a field goal against the red-hot Cowboys.

Dallas has covered all five games during its win streak, with running back Ezekiel Elliott scoring five touchdowns and averaging 172 yards from scrimmage in that span. He had an astounding 40 touches in last week’s overtime win over the Eagles. Elliott is complementing recently acquired receiver Amari Cooper, who has exploded for five touchdowns in his past three games.

The Cowboys rank second with 18.9 points allowed per game, and have not given up more than 23 since Week 9. Plus, the Colts could be without receiver TY Hilton, who was absent from practice all week with an ankle injury. Hilton has at least seven receptions in the last four games and topped 100 yards three times over that span.

We can tell you Hunt is leaning Over, but his much stronger play is on the spread. He’s identified a critical X-factor that has him going big on one side. He’s sharing what it is, and who to back, at SportsLine.

Who covers Cowboys vs. Colts? And what critical X-factor makes one side of the spread a must-back? Visit SportsLine now to see which side you need to jump on Sunday, from a former running back who’s 5-0 on Cowboys picks, and find out.

Packers vs Bears

Packers vs Bears : Bulaga and Clark inactive for Green Bay.There is no rivalry in the NFL older and more intense than the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears. These two teams first met in 1921. OK, the Bears were then known as the Chicago Staleys, but each team’s Hall of Fame founder and coach, Curly Lambeau and George Halas, were already in place.

CLICK HERE TO WATCH NOW

These two storied teams have met 195 times during the regular season and twice in the playoffs, more than any other NFL franchises. The Packers hold a 96-93-6 advantage all-time. Since 1994, the Packers are on an impressive 36-12 run not including the victory in the 2010 NFC Championship Game.

Here is a look back at some of the Packers most memorable moments in the NFL’s oldest rivalry with video clips included when possible:

September 27, 1925: Packers 14, Bears 10

The Packers beat the Bears for the first time ever before a large paid crowd of 5,389 in Green Bay. Curly Lambeau’s players earned the win on a four-yard touchdown pass from Charlie Mathys to Verne Lewellen in the fourth quarter. Moose Gardner scored the other Green Bay touchdown on a blocked punt in the second quarter.

September 22, 1935: Packers 7, Bears 0

This game marked the coming out party for rookie wide receiver Don Hutson. “The Alabama Antelope” made an immediate impact for the Packers, scoring on the first play of the game on an 83-yard touchdown pass from Arnie Herber. It was the only score by either team in the game.

Hutson went on to become the most dominant receiver of the NFL’s first 50 years and helped lead the Packers to three NFL titles over his decade-long career.

Here is a clip of Hutson talking about the first of 99 career touchdown receptions.

September 27, 1959: Packers 9, Bears 6

Vince Lombardi made his NFL head coaching debut a successful one with a 9-6 win over the rival Bears. With the victory, the Packers matched their win total for the previous season which saw them go 1-10-1.

The Bears led 6-0 in the fourth quarter when the Packers came to life. Jim Ringo recovered a fumbled punt at the Chicago 27 and five plays later, fullback Jim Taylor scored from five yards out to even the score. Paul Hornung kicked the extra point to give the Packers a 7-6 lead with 7:45 left.

Dave “Hog” Hanner tackled Chicago’s Ed Brown in the end zone for a safety in the final minute and the Packers won 9-6.

In celebration, the Packers lifted Lombardi on the shoulders and carried him off the football field. Nobody knew it at the time, but the Packers had just started of one of the greatest dynasties in NFL history.

September 7, 1980: Packers 12, Bears 6 (OT)

Kicker Chester Marcol led the league in scoring in 1972 and 1974, but he never scored a touchdown over the course of his NFL career until opening day of the 1980 season.

The two teams engaged in an old-fashioned defensive struggle with the Packers holding Walter Payton to just 65 yards on 31 carries. Neither team was able to find the end zone and the game was even 6-6 after 60 minutes of play.

Marcol lined up to kick a 35-yard field goal in overtime to win the game. Bears lineman Alan Page blocked the kick which bounded right back into Marcol’s arms. The shocked kicker ran the ball around the left side and into the end zone for the game-winning score.

Later, it was learned Marcol was under the influence of cocaine that day and the Packers cut him a few weeks later. Marcol eventually straightened out his life and is now a drug counselor and speaker.

November 5, 1989: Packers 14, Bears 13

The Bears had won eight straight games over the Packers during Mike Ditka’s coaching heyday and of course they won Super Bowl XX with a dominant defense in 1985. Meanwhile, the Packers had struggled through the mid-80s and although they played them tough, they couldn’t find a way to beat the Bears.

But in 1989, quarterback Don Majkowski and the cardiac Pack found ways to win close football games. “Majik” found Sterling Sharpe on a fourth down play with just 32 seconds left on the clock to tie the football game and Lambeau Field went crazy.

But a penalty flag called the play back after an official ruled Majkowski was over the line of scrimmage when he threw the ball. The replay officials overturned the call and Lambeau Field erupted when it was announced the game was tied. Chris Jacke’s extra point gave the Packers a 14-13 win over their hated rivals for the first time since 1984.

September 11, 1995: Packers 27, Bears 24

Brett Favre threw three early touchdown passes to lead the Packers to a 27-24 win over Chicago on Monday Night Football. The highlight of the game was a 99-yard touchdown pass from Favre to Robert Brooks which gave the Packers a 21-0 lead early in the second quarter.

November 12, 1995: Packers 35, Bears 28

Favre’s consecutive game streak was in jeopardy due to an injured ankle and he was a game-time decision for the Packers. The Gunslinger managed to play and responded in Hall of Fame fashion, tossing a career-best five touchdown passes and leading the Packers to a 35-28 comeback win over the Bears.

Favre finished the game 25-of-33 for 336 yards and threw two touchdown passes to Edgar Bennett, two to Robert Brooks and one to Dorsey Levens.

Reggie White also played through a tough knee injury and recorded half a sack and tipped a pass to lead the Green Bay defense.

January 2, 2011: Packers 10, Bears 3

The Packers needed a win to clinch a playoff berth in the 2010 season finale and they had to go to Solider Field to get it.

On a cold day, defenses dominated. The game was tied 3-3 in the fourth quarter when Aaron Rodgers put the Packers ahead on a one-yard touchdown pass to tight end Donald Lee.

The Bears drove down the field in the final minutes and attempted to tie the game, but cornerback Nick Collins intercepted Jay Cutler’s pass to seal the victory and send the Pack to the playoffs.

January 23, 2011: Packers 21, Bears 14 (2010 NFC Championship Game)

The Packers and Bears met for the right to go to Super Bowl XLV. Green Bay led early on a one-yard touchdown run by Rodgers and a four-yard scoring dash by James Starks.

But in the fourth quarter, the Bears rallied behind third-string quarterback Caleb Hanie who led a drive that pulled Chicago to within a touchdown.

Then, the Green Bay defense came through. Big nose tackle B.J. Raji intercepted Hanie and returned the ball 18 yards for a touchdown.

The Packers clinched the win in the final minute when Sam Shields ended Chicago’s last gasp drive with an interception deep in Green Bay territory. Green Bay was heading back to the Super Bowl.

December 29, 2013: Green Bay 33, Chicago 28

The Packers needed a win to clinch the NFC North and reach the playoffs after Rodgers missed seven games due to injury, slowing down the team’s progress. Rodgers returned in time for the season finale and led the Packers to a thrilling 33-28 win in Chicago.

The Pack trailed 28-27 with 38 seconds left and faced a fourth and eight from the Chicago 48 when Rodgers avoided a strong rush from Julius Peppers, rolled out and found Randall Cobb open downfield for the winning score.

November 9, 2014: Packers 55, Bears 14

Aaron Rodgers was at his finest on this night before a national television audience. Rodgers threw six touchdown passes in the first half as the Pack rolled up a 42-0 halftime lead en route to a 55-14 win.

Rodgers finished the game 18-of-27 for 315 yards and the six scores. He threw TD passes to Brandon Bostick, Andrew Quarless, Jordy Nelson (twice), Eddie Lacy and Randall Cobb.

The six first half touchdowns passes tied a record set by Oakland’s Daryle Lamonica in 1969.

September 9, 2018: Packers 24, Bears 23

Aaron Rodgers overcame a serious knee injury and a 20-0 halftime deficit to lead Green Bay to a 24-23 opening night win over the Bears.

Rodgers was knocked out of the game in the second quarter and carted off to the locker room. By the time he returned for the third quarter, the Packers trailed 20-0.

Rodgers hit Geronimo Allison and Davante Adams for touchdowns to pull the Pack close and then hit Randall Cobb for a 75-yard touchdown pass to put Green Bay ahead to stay, 24-23.

Redskins vs Jaguars

Jacksonville may be near the bottom of the NFL standings, but when you consider the lineup that Washington is rolling out there, a victory is a tall task.

Fourth-string quarterback Josh Johnson, who was signed earlier this month, will be starting for the Redskins. The offense will also be without tight end Jordan Reed and possibly Chris Thompson and Josh Doctson, who are both listed as questionable.

Should both players be ruled out, the Redskins will have a tough time getting a win, but stranger things have happened. Here’s everything you need to know going into Sunday’s game.

Raiders vs Bengals

Raiders vs Bengals in 1975 AFC Divisional Round.In 1975, the Oakland Raiders spent an inconceivable seven straight weeks away from home as they finished the preseason with trips to Dallas and Los Angeles and started the regular season with five consecutive road trips.

CLICK HERE TO WATCH NOW

 The Silver and Black went 3-0 with wins at Miami, Baltimore and San Diego before finally faltering at Kansas City. A hard-fought, loss to the Bengals in the rain in Cincinnati brought the nearly two months of travel to a close.

The Bengals joined the American Football League as an expansion team in 1968, while the AFL was in the midst of the merger with the National Football League. The Raiders had won six of the first eight meetings between the two clubs.

The Raiders had become perennial championship contenders since their breakout 1967 AFL title run, while the Bengals had managed to qualify for the playoffs in 1970 and 1973, bowing in the AFC Divisional round each time. In fact, the Raiders faced and lost to the Baltimore Colts team that had defeated the Bengals in the 1970 AFC Divisional Playoffs in the first-ever AFC Championship game. In 1973, the Bengals fell to a Miami Dolphins team that would go on to defeat the Raiders in the AFC title game and win the Super Bowl.

The Bengals were 4-0 when they hosted the Raiders on Oct. 19, 1975, and rushed out to a 6-0 start before falling to Pittsburgh. The Raiders were 3-1 heading into that match-up. After a combined 16 punts, eight interceptions and just 12 pass completions, the Bengals came out on top 14-10 at Riverfront Stadium. Marvin Cobb’s 52-yard interception return for a touchdown in the third quarter was the difference. The Raiders did manage to rush for 188 yards as a team.

Both teams finished the season with identical 11-3 records, with the Raiders winning the AFC West and the Bengals finishing second in the AFC Central behind Pittsburgh. Two thrilling overtime victories, at Washington and vs. Atlanta, coupled with two rare shut-outs of the San Diego Chargers propelled the Raiders to a seven-game winning streak. The Bengals won five of their last seven, while the Raiders won eight of their last nine.

A key member of the Bengals squad was Pro Bowl and All-Pro tight end and longtime radio and TV analyst Bob Trumpy.

“We thought we were pretty damn good,” Trumpy said. “We had Isaac Curtis and Charlie Joiner on the field at the same time. But we lost twice to Pittsburgh and as I remember, we lost to Cleveland and that was 11-3. I don’t know why but from 1968 on we always played the Raiders very well no matter where we played, either out there or in Cincinnati. We always felt no matter what their record was, we were very self-confident playing the Raiders.”

When the 1975 regular season was all said and done, a Raiders vs. Bengals re-match was set for Dec. 28 in the AFC Divisional Playoffs at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum.

“Our practice field ran east to west, the week that we played the Raiders we practiced north to south. You know, ‘what the hell is going on here?’ Above our practice field up on a bluff in Cincinnati was a big high-rise,” Trumpy recalled. “[Bengals Head Coach] Paul [Brown] was convinced that Al Davis was filming all of our practices, he was going to trick Al and we practiced north to south every time we played the Raiders. It was amazing and it was one of those quirks that Paul Brown had.”

On a 51-degree December day in Oakland, the Silver and Black jumped out to a 10-0 lead on the visitors. Kicker George Blanda missed from 41 yards out on the Raiders opening possession. Quarterback Ken Stabler’s 36-yard pass to wide receiver Cliff Branch and an 18-yard running back Clarence Davis scamper set up a 27-yard field goal that gave the Raiders a 3-0 lead.

Trumpy’s one catch on the day came on a 3rd and 10 at the Cincinnati 26. “I always had good games against the Raiders, and in the Raiders playoff game, they tried a tight end screen with me,” Trumpy said. “I caught it for minus seven yards, George Atkinson made the tackle, dammit. And that was it for me for the day.”

After that three-and-out, Stabler engineered an eight-play, 50-yard drive, aided by a personal foul penalty, that he capped with a nine-yard TD toss to wide receiver Mike Siani. Raiders 10, Bengals 0.

The teams then exchanged blocked kicks – Oakland linebacker Ted Hendricks blocked a Dave Green punt, while defensive end Sherman White got his mitts on a 31-yard Blanda field goal attempt. Quarterback Ken Anderson hit wide receiver Charlie Joiner for 28 yards and fullback Boobie Clark for 26 to set up a 1-yard running back Stan Fritts touchdown run that cut the Raiders lead to 10-7 with 5:50 left in the second quarter.

Davis returned the ensuing kickoff to the Raiders 46. Stabler directed a nine-play, 54-yard drive that culminated with his second touchdown pass of the day, this time an eight-yard toss to tight end Bob Moore. The Raiders led 17-7 with 1:54 left in the first half.

Thanks in part to a Hendricks’ sack, the Raiders held the Bengals to a three-and-out to start the third quarter. Safety Neal Colzie returned the Green punt to the Bengals 35. Two fullback Marv Hubbard runs totaling 13 yards and a 16-yard Davis gash set up fullback Pete Banaszak’s six-yard touchdown run. The home team led 24-7 with 11:00 left in the third quarter and looked well on their way to a date in the AFC Championship game.

Anderson and the Bengals were not about to go quietly.

The Raiders pinned the Bengals at their own nine-yard line with good kickoff coverage. Undaunted, Anderson directed an 11-play, 91-yard drive, that was capped off by a six-yard running back Lenvil Elliott touchdown run. The successful extra point cut the Raiders lead to 24-14 with 4:46 left in the third.

Davis returned the ensuing kickoff to the Oakland 35. Stabler guided the Raiders down the field on a 12-play, 65-yard drive that he capped with a two-yard touchdown strike to tight end Dave Casper. Blanda’s extra point put the Raiders up 31-14 with 13:03 left in the game.

After a three-and-out, Green punted the ball back to the Raiders. Four plays later, cornerback Ken Riley picked off a Stabler pass and returned it to the Oakland 34. Two plays later, Anderson connected with Joiner for a 25-yard touchdown pass to cut the Raiders lead to 31-20 with 10:13 left to play.

The Bengals held the Raiders to a three-and-out and took over at the Oakland 49 after a punter Ray Guy boot and subsequent return. Anderson overcame two offensive penalties, hooked up with wide receiver Chip Myers for a 37-yard gain and found wide receiver Isaac Curtis for a 14-yard touchdown to trim the Silver and Black’s lead to 31-28 with 5:44 left in the fourth quarter.

On the third play of the Raiders next possession, Banaszak fumbled the ball and defensive lineman Ron Carpenter recovered for Cincinnati at the Oakland 37. Hendricks sacked Anderson on first down and the Bengals were forced to turn the ball over on downs as the Raiders defense held firm. The Raiders took over with 3:02 left in the game and the Bengals never saw the ball again as Stabler and Co. were able to run out the clock. The Raiders were able to keep possession when Cincinnati was flagged for running into the punter with 50 ticks left.

Stabler finished the game 17-of-23 for 199 yards and three touchdowns, while Anderson completed 17-of-27 for 201 yards and two scores. Davis rushed for 63, Banaszak 62 and Hubbard for 33, while Clark paced with Bengals on the ground with 46 yards. The Raiders defense sacked Anderson five times, with Hendricks recording four.

The Raiders held on for a 31-28 victory and advanced to the AFC Championship game, eventually falling to the Steelers 16-10 in Pittsburgh.

After the game, Bengals Head Coach Paul Brown said, “I was proud of my team. They never quit. But Oakland is a splendid team, especially on their home grounds.”

“We knew one thing, and that was Cincinnati us a very explosive team,” Raiders Head Coach John Madden said after the win. “Hell, they’re a good football team. We’re not playing the Sisters of the Poor.”

Preview

There were rumblings about Julio Jones not being able to play this week because of his foot injury. In addition to the plagued foot, head coach Dan Quinn sent Jones home from practice on Thursday due to an illness.

Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks is prepared to deploy his best defensive back, possibly the league’s best, in Patrick Peterson against Jones, who after not being able to score touchdowns now can’t avoid them, if needed.

“I think it’s going to be a great matchup. You’re talking about two of the best at their position. Who knows? Those two guys could be future Hall of Famers. It’s going to be a great contest. I know Patrick is excited about — I don’t want to call it a challenge — but the opportunity to be able to cover Julio.”

Austin Hooper (ankle, knee) is also scheduled to be available for the Falcons. Ito Smith, however, may not be with a knee injury. Tevin Coleman and Smith have split the Atlanta backfield duties this season without starter Devonta Freeman in the fold.

Arizona will also have its star offensive player in the fold. David Johnson (quad) will be in the lineup when the Cardinals take the field on Sunday after being limited in practice early last week.
