Last season, the Bengals scored their first victory in against the Jaguars in Jacksonville for the first time since 1995, snapping a seven-game losing streak. They won again in Jacksonville this season, and outscored the Jags 57-30 in those two contests.

 

So why have the Bengals been so successful on the road? Simply put, defense and a good run game travels on the road. While the run game struggled mightily vs. the Steelers, the defense played arguably the best game they’ve played since Mike Zimmer became the defensive coordinator in 2008 as they held Pittsburgh to just 280 yards, one touchdown, stopped them on 12/14 third-down attempts, and came up with several crucial turnovers to spark the monumental win while the offense laid a goose egg for the most part.
