The Saints, Eagles and Bengals are jockeying for playoff position, and all were expected to win in Week 15-but each team left Sunday wondering what went wrong.

This week on Planning for Success, presented by Ameriprise Financial, Sporting News football analyst Ross Tucker looks at the three teams and analyzes why those game plans went awry in critical games.

"I'm sure that the coaches emphasized that they couldn't take their opponent lightly, but clearly, whether it's consciously or subconsciously, they did," Tucker told host Rayven Tirado.
