Say what you want about the Bengals and how they are winning games in the last possible minute and seconds but the bottom line is right now they are finding ways to win games and not lose them like they had been doing for so many years in the past. The Bengals after the win today over the Ravens are now 3-0 in the division and have two wins on the road in the division over the Ravens and the Browns last week. That Bengals loss the Steelers suffered a few weeks ago is really looming large now when it comes down to tiebrakers later on in the year seeing that the Bengals have played 3 games in the division and won them all and 2 of them on the road. The Steelers have played one division game and lost it. Now with the Bengals playing their next 3 games at home against the Texans,Bears,and Ravens and not having to go on the road for another 5 weeks until they play the Steelers here at Heinz Field it really sets the Bengals up to possibly keep winning up until that Steelers game at Heinz Field on November 15th. So I have to ask everybody on here now is everybody more worried about the Bengals now instead of the Ravens?? Especially since the Steelers already lost to them and are down a tiebraker in the division?? I am and Im not. Im not because the Steelers pretty much totally dominated the Bengals until the 4th quarter collapse. The offense just failed to finish drives including the Limas Sweed drop which would have put the game away.
Nonetheless, the Bengals are where they are now at 4-1. And with the Ravens having to go play at now 5-0 Minnesota next week they could be staring hard at 3 losses in a row and a 3-3 record. The Bengals play the Texans at home who are as up and down as they come so who knows how that game is going to turn out. The bottom line is though it's officially time to start worrying about the Bengals in this division and consider them a major player with the Ravens because they continue to keep winning and arent going away anytime soon. The Steelers are going to have to keep winning games and try and stay tied with the Bengals or at least a game behind them going into that game with them here at Heinz Field on November 15th. With the unexpected upset of the Ravens today by the Bengals it's going to make that game here with Cincy in November even more important to win seeing that the Bengals are already 3-0 in the division and the Steelers have yet to win a game in the division.
