I hate to be the one to rain on your Super Bowl parade there Edgecrusher.. But the Week 3 version of the Pats would've soundly beaten Cincy!! And I wonder if Manning would say that Cincy game was harder than the Pats game....Given the history, I'm saying No. And no matter how you cut it...The Bengals lost at home by 2 TDS (27-13) to The Steelers who were just better...Plain and Simple!! I also think it was kind of funny how you didn't mention teams the Bengals have faced this year But don't worry...Instead of listing a group of teams with a lame comment I'll just let the facts speak for themselves...Sun 9/25 @Bears Win (Rookie Kyle Ortons 3rd game) Sun 10/9 @Jags -LOSS / Sun 10/23 Pitt @Home -LOSS Sun 11/20 Indy @home -LOSS...Rest of the teams they've played up to this point over.500...ZERO Chances of making playoffs with a loss this week...Good...Reason...Number of teams they play after this week with a winning record....ONE (@ K.C.) That's FAR AND AWAY The easiest schedule in the NFL!! 6 games VS. winning teams in a 16 game season and they're 1-3 basically showing that they could lose all their games vs. good teams and still finish 10-6....Kind of sad when you look at the Schedule The Pats had to play this year which was one of the hardest ever!! So Chad can have his ridiculous end zone celebrations and if that's enough to make Bengal fans happy I say congrats!! That's cool...We N.E. fans have grown accustomed to Super Bowl wins And childish end zone antics can't compete with that.. I still say Jacksonville and San Diego will beat them out in the wild card race.
