When it comes to rollercoasters, John Madden would rather ride with Andy Dalton than Philip Rivers.
Thursday on Mad Dog Sports Radio’s Madden Football, Madden told Adam Schein that despite Philip Rivers’ bounce-back season in San Diego, the Bengals should take down the Chargers convincingly.
“I don’t believe that they even belong in the playoffs,” Madden said of the Chargers. “They’re a nice team, but they’re middle-of-the-road, just below [playoff-caliber]. If you have [the Chargers] at home and you pump your brakes, then you made a big, big mistake. Cincinnati should come in and just take this one over right from the start. Kansas City darn near did it with their ‘others,’ and darn near beat them.”
Madden also broke down Sunday’s late game between the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers.
