(Ken) Stabler is a tremendous quarterback and their line gave him as good a protection as he could ask for." Southpaw Stabler threw four TD passes against the Bengals. "We certainly didn't expect them to move the ball as consistenly as they did," said Johnson. Meanwhile, Bengals' quarterback Ken Anderson threw three interceptions. Even though the Steelers now have the playoff edge over Cincinnati, the Bengals are still hoping Houston can upset Pittsburgh Saturday, which would give Cincy the final say in the playoff debate against the Jets. "It's a crazy business," reminded Johnson. "We've cautioned the team against sloughing off in New York."

Details 23 Channel From Post Wire Services CINCINNATI - The Cincinnati Bengals limped back home yesterday, their once-bright playoff chances now dim. The Bengals suffered a crucial 35-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Oakland Monday night and the outcome shifted the Pittsburgh-Cincinnati playoff battle edge to the Steelers. All Pittsburgh needs to do to clinch a playoff berth is beat the Oilers in Houston Saturday. The only way Cincy can make the playoffs is for Pittsburgh to lose to Houston, coupled with a Bengals win over the New York Jets in New York Sunday. Even though the Steelers-Oilers matchup is in Houston, the Steelers will be heavily favored. They have been playing brilliantly in recent weeks, have an eight-game win streak going and will have plenty of incentive to beat the disappointing 5-8 Oilers. "I would have to say our chances are pretty slim," agreed Bengals' Head Coach Bill Johnson. Two weeks ago, the Bengals were big favorites to make the playoffs. But that was before losses to the Steelers and Raiders. Johnson, of course, was disappointed in the turn of events, but not bitter about the 35-20 loss to Oakland.; WHY k- NOT LEASE nim wmtiiii mmntn ...HWilwiriiiiiiiia I I 11 I ri 1 y S jj'-'" ' '--i' ii"'!'''''''"''"'!'!"!
