Bengals give themselves hope for a late-season push

DENVER (AP) By pulling off a rare win in Denver, the Cincinnati Bengals gave themselves a chance to do something that's only been done four times since the NFL adopted its current 12-team playoff format in 1990: recover from a 3-6 start to get their names on the list for the postseason party.

The only teams to do it were the `94 Patriots, `95 Lions, `96 Jaguars and Washington five years ago.

The Bengals aim to be the fifth after beating the Broncos 20-17 Sunday on the strength of two takeaways and a blocked field goal after watching Brandon McManus' 61-yarder just before halftime easily clear the crossbar after Lewis had called timeout.
