Every week is a must win in the NFL, for the Cincinnati Bengals this week was no different. Playoff caliber teams who are coming off a bye and playing a bad defense take care of business, get a win, and get on the plane. In previous years the Bengals might have went out to San Diego played well, but still not pulled out a win. That wasn’t the case yesterday, this team rode another outstanding defensive effort against a red-hot quarterbacks/offense and did what solid teams do, just win. Now the team heads back home where they are 5-0 to take on another playoff contender in the Indianapolis Colts.
Here are 3 players and a coach that rose to the challenge and deserve some credit for stepping up in San Diego.
