The Bengals are on a roll again, winning now three games in a row. These games weren’t close either. All three were blowout wins. It started with a 31-13 victory over the struggling Giants at home. A week later, the Bengals went to Kansas City and beat on them for a while 28-6. Then Sunday, the Bengals blew away the Oakland Raiders (lead by former Bengals QB Carson Palmer) 34-10. The Bengals avenged being betrayed by Palmer.

This winning streak has brought out new stars. Mohammed Sanu had his first career touchdown reception against New York, another one against Kansas City, and today’s is week against Oakland (Oh yeah, and did you hear? There was a brawl that was started between Bengals offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth and Oakland’s Tommy Kelly (both were ejected, Andrew, please keep your cool).

Benjarvus Green-Ellis, who until now has been a disappointment, has two consecutive 100+ yard games on the ground. Cedric Peerman has been a very solid back up to The Law Firm. Turnovers have not been a problem, with one turnover in the past three weeks (Brandon Tate muffing a punt against New York). Andy Dalton has gone three games without an interception, and has thrown 9TDs in the last three games, including a career-high 4 against New York.
