Sometimes young teams like them, who are learning how to win, run out of gas dring their first, real taste of what it's like to be a playoff team.
Last week's victory against Baltimore was not emotional. Both teams had nothing to play for but the Ravens sat all their guys and were begging for the Bengals to beat them, which they barely managed to do because their hearts weren't really in it either.
