a five-game stretch of sub-.500 opponents, the Cincinnati Bengals have impressed so far. Coming off of their demolition of the New York Giants, the running game picked apart the Kansas City Chiefs, and then had an exceptional encore performance against the Raiders. The defense has been stronger than it has looked all year long, and the passing game has become significantly more effective.
Andy Dalton has led that offensive charge, while throwing 9 touchdown passes in comparison with no interceptions in their three-game winning streak. That brings his total to 23 touchdowns with just eleven interceptions. Yesterday was the first time in ten weeks that A.J Green didn’t catch one of those “Red Rifle” touchdowns, but Mohamed Sanu made up for the change, grabbing two to his name against the Oakland Raiders.
