Despite the loss, the Bengals (97) also got into the playoffs, securing the
final wild card as the Jets and Broncos also lost. Rice had a careerbest 70yard
touchdown run.

Rice also broke a 51yard touchdown run with 5:41 to go and finished with 191
yards on 24 carries.

returned a kickoff 105 yards for

in Cincinnati, Oakland and Denver. Tennessee got some early help when the Jets
lost in Miami.
