The Cincinnati Bengals have a winning record, and finally have won a road game. So far, the Bengals are 3-0 at home, beating the Steelers, Packers, and Patriots. All three of those teams are formidable opponents that all could have beaten the Bengals. The Steelers were winless until last week, but still give the Bengals headaches no matter what year; especially that defense. Green Bay and New England are both very tough opponents, combining for a 8-3 record, and two of those losses came from the Bengals.

So let’s think about this question, is it possible that the Bengals can go undefeated at home? Well, the last time the Bengals did such a feat was in 1988, where they went to the Super Bowl. Is it impossible for the Bengals to go undefeated at home? How possible is it? Let’s take a look at how the Bengals have done thus far at home.

So far at home, Andy Dalton has a better QB rating than he does on the road. The Bengals run game is averaging 3.8 YPC and 4 TDs in only three games. In fact, they average 123.7 yards per game at home. In the receiving game, they are averaging 242 yards a game, with 3 TDs. They also have 407 YAC at home, which is a very good feat.
