interception for a touchdown Cheap Sheldon Rankins Jersey , the Bengals seemed to have the game in hand. Ryan Fitzpatrick was just getting warmed up on the Buccaneers sideline.Fitzpatrick took over after Jameis Winston's fourth interception and led Tampa Bay on a late flurry that tied the game . Randy Bullock's 44-yard field goal on the final play salvaged a 37-34 victory for Cincinnati and left the Buccaneers with a question about their quarterback.Which one is the starter now?"Today is not the day I need to decide that," coach Dirk Koetter said.He can't put it off for long. The Buccaneers (3-4) have the NFL's top-ranked offense but keep hurting themselves with turnovers. Winston has seven by himself in the last two games, including the four on Sunday that matched his career high. He moved back into the starting job after serving an NFL suspension to start the season, but hasn't played up to the standard that Fitzpatrick set as his fill-in."I can't play like that," Winston said. "I was heaving balls all over the place and not giving our team a chance to win."The Bengals (5-3) head into their bye with a defense that's one of the worst in franchise history so far and an offense that's totally erratic. They were coming off a 45-10 loss in Kansas City on Sunday night that was their second-worst drubbing in coach Marvin Lewis' 16 seasons.They got ahead of the Bucs by 21 points with an impressive first half 鈥?Joe Mixon ran for more than 100 yards and Tyler Boyd had more than 100 yards in receptions. In the second half, they managed only 95 yards, 50 of them in the final drive."I'm not pleased with how we played," Lewis said.Five takeaways from Paul Brown Stadium:WINSTON'S WOESWinston has six interceptions and a fumble in the last two games. Turnovers have been his biggest problem during his four seasons in the NFL. He has thrown at least two interceptions in five straight games, tied for most in the league since 1990. It was the third time in his career he's thrown four in a game. The problems have been more pronounced this season: He has 10 interceptions, one fewer than all last season.FITZY'S BACKFitzpatrick put up big numbers as the stand-in, helping the Bucs become the league's top-ranked offense. He had only a couple of minutes to warm up before replacing Winston after the fourth interception, but he showed no rust. Fitzpatrick went 11 of 15 for 194 yards with a near-perfect passer rating of 154.9."It doesn't take a lot to get this thing going," Fitzpatrick said, moving his arm in a warmup motion.BIG PLAYSFitzpatrick's 72-yard touchdown pass to Mike Evans was his fifth of at least 50 yards this season, most in the NFL. DeSean Jackson caught a 60-yard touchdown pass from Winston that moved him ahead of Jerry Rice for the NFL record. He has 24 TDs of at least 60 yards. It also was Jackson's 29th career TD of at least 50 yards, tying Randy Moss for second-most since the 1970 merger behind Rice's 36.BAD DEFENSEIn the past three games, the Bengals' defense has allowed 481, 551 and 576 yards along with a total of 107 points. It's the first time in franchise history that the Bengals have given more than 500 yards in back-to-back games. The Bucs' 576 yards are the fourth-most allowed in franchise history. The club record for 500-yard games allowed is three in 2014. Up next: Drew Brees and the Saints."We gave up a thousand yards on defense today," Brown said.The Bengals lost end Carl Lawson to a severely injured right knee. Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick left for a while after aggravating his left Achilles' tendon that limited him last week.OFFENSIVE EXTREMESThe Bengals had 307 yards and 16 first downs in the first half Cheap Alvin Kamara Jersey , when they opened a 21-point lead. In the second half, they managed only 95 yards and five first downs on six possessions. They were held without a first down in the second half until 4:22 was left in the game. While Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan stressed that New Orleans doesn't fear going on the road in the playoffs, he readily acknowledged the advantages of staying in the Superdome.New Orleans (12-2) can lock up the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs with a victory over visiting Pittsburgh (8-5-1) on Sunday."That would be huge," said Jordan, referencing what he calls "dome-field advantage."The Saints did fine on the road this season, going 7-1. They won't finish any better in the Superdome, where they are 5-1 with two regular-season home games left. But New Orleans' offense generally has been better at home, where Drew Brees' pre-snap instructions 鈥?and center Max Unger's line calls 鈥?are easier for teammates to hear. The Saints have averaged about 38 points at home, but their road scoring average dipped about nine points below that after three straight road games in which they were held to 28 or less in each game and to 12 or fewer points twice."It's been almost a month since we've been at the dome, so it'll be nice to be back in there," Brees said. "Obviously we've got a lot going for us right now 鈥?a lot at stake."In reality, the Saints don't have that much riding on Sunday's game 鈥?certainly not as much as the Steelers, who could still win the AFC North but haven't clinched a playoff berth yet. New Orleans already has won a second straight NFC South crown and will finish as a top seed even if it splits its next two games. But from the standpoint of offensive production, playoff history and promoting optimal health, the Saints know they'd be best served by beating Pittsburgh.In franchise history, the Saints are 1-7 in playoff games away from the Superdome. Since coach Sean Payton and Brees arrived in 2006, the Saints have not lost any of their five home playoff games. The one season they won the Super Bowl, they were the NFC's No. 1 seed.In fact, no Super Bowl participant has won a single road playoff game since the 2012 Baltimore Ravens won at Denver and New England en route to their title-winning tilt with San Francisco in New Orleans.Meanwhile Terron Armstead Jersey , key Saints players could get as much as two weeks rest 鈥?the regular-season finale and the playoff bye 鈥?if New Orleans wins this week."Rest is much needed to get our bodies right," Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore said. "Take a week, or two (off) if we clinch it this week. Hopefully rest the starters for the last game."The Steelers can't worry about rest 鈥?not even after improving their postseason outlook with a victory over New England last week."We just want to get into the playoffs," quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said. "It doesn't matter how you get in, we just want to get in. Obviously, the first and second seed you would like, but I don't think we can get that now. So, let's just find a way to get in."Some other prominent story lines surround the Steelers' visit to the Superdome:BOWING UPDespite a significant slowdown offensively during their past three games, the Saints went 2-1 during that stretch because of strong defensive play.New Orleans, which struggled defensively early this season, has not allowed any of its past six opponents to score more than 17 points and has held two teams to less than 10."The offense was really getting us through the games at the beginning of the season and the roles flipped," Lattimore said. "Nobody pointed fingers. We just got the job done. That's the biggest thing, just playing as a team."JAYSAM'S JOURNEYSteelers rookie running back Jaylen Samuels will start his third straight game in place of injured Pro Bowler James Conner, who is hobbled by a sprained left ankle.Samuels, a fifth-round pick, lit up New England for 172 total yards. Not bad for a player who was asked to work out as a tight end at the NFL combine. The going could get considerably tougher against New Orleans, which leads the league in rush defense (79.1 yards per game).RESPECTBrees is the third high-profile quarterback the Steelers have faced in four weeks, joining New England's Tom Brady and Philip Rivers of the Los Angeles Chargers. Roethlisberger, who only knows Brees casually from run-ins at the Pro Bowl Max Unger Jersey , isn't sure Brees has gotten enough credit for his record-setting career."He's incredibly athletic ... and a tireless worker," Roethlisberger said. "Not really known for a huge arm, but can pretty much make any throw. I have a lot of respect for that guy."JORDAN'S JUDGMENTJordan, the Saints' sacks leader, sounded incredulous when a media member referred to Roethlisberger as a "future Hall-of-Fame quarterback" during an interview in New Orleans' locker room.Grimacing and turning his head sharply, Jordan said: "It that true? Really? In this era? You'd put him at like a top three of this era? Top five of this era?"Jordan listed Brees, New England's Tom Brady, Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, the Los Angeles Chargers' Philip Rivers, the retired Peyton Manning and the Giants' Eli Manning as QB's he'd place above Roethlisberger.This season, Roethlisberger's 4,462 yards rank second behind only Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes in the NFL.Jordan, a first-time All Pro last season, has 12 sacks to go with 17 tackles for losses, a forced fumble and fumble recovery.AP Sports Writer Will Graves in Pittsburgh contributed.
