Setting the Scene: Bengals Ready to Tackle Skins

As the Washington Redskins head to Cincinnati this week with playoff hopes on the line, the Cincinnati locker room is pledging that the campaign does not have to end as it has gone thus far.

“We are going to win the last three,” head coach Marvin Lewis said. “We are going to work our butts off and get these last three wins.”

Up first is Washington, a team that has lost four of its last five games following a 6-2 start. The Redskins have averaged only 10.6 points per game in their last five games.

Bengals wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh, who’s competing for back-to-back 100-catch seasons, said the final stretch boils down to not only the team concept, but man-against-man pride.

“You don’t think about your record when you’re out on the field,” he said. “You think that you don’t want the guy across the line to get the best of you. Simple as that.”
