It was that statement game that we have needed this year, and what a statement it was. Our boys gave the Jets their biggest beating in the Rex Ryan era. It was certainly Andy Dalton’s best performance in his 3-year career. This Jets defense was the first real test for the new and improved offense, and they passed with flying colors.
All of this goes to show that when the Bengals are firing on all cylinders, this team can be a force to be reckoned with. If the Bengals can play like this every week, there is a good chance they can make a Super Bowl run, and with a defense that has beaten Tom Brady, Matthew Stafford and Aaron Rodgers, all of whom very good-elite QBs (2 of which are Super Bowl winners) and an offense like we have seen the past few weeks, there is no way the Bengals can be counted out.
