And it wasn’t like any of those Jets losses were to dominant and vastly superior teams. The starting QBs the Jets have beaten the Bengals with include Neil O’Donnell, Vinny Testaverde, Chad Pennington and….Mark Sanchez:
Yeah. That guy is 3-0 vs the Bengals (including playoffs).
Needless to say, the Bengals played like a team that new they were playing a team that had dominated them in recent memory, and it was the Bengals who did all of the dominating on Sunday, as they outplayed the Jets in every facet possible en-route to a convincing 49-9 win.
To put that score into perspective, the scoring margin of the previous Bengals-Jets games had been a combined 140-207. The most the Bengals lost to the Jets in that string of games was 37 in a Week 17 game the Bengals essentially played like a preseason game, while the Jets needed a win to clinch a playoff berth.
After Sunday, the margin is now 189-216, despite getting just their second win over the Jets in their past 10 matchups. That’s what you call a convincing win.
