CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Bengals enter Sunday's action needing only one more win to secure the team's fifth straight playoff berth and potentially a guaranteed home game.  

A win by the Dallas Cowboys Saturday night over the New York Jets would have put the Bengals in the playoffs, but a late field goal by Randy Bullock of New York finished off the Cowboys 19-16. 

The result means the Bengals still need one more win, or a Kansas City loss, to officially clinch. The Bengals could also be crowned the AFC North champs if they take care of business and Pittsburgh loses to Denver. 

Bengals clinch playoff spot with:

  • CIN win OR
  • KC loss OR
  • CIN tie + KC tie

Bengals clinch AFC North with:

  • CIN win or tie + PIT tie
  • PIT loss
