Sunday’s win over the Detroit Lions was a HUGE win for the Bengals for many reasons:

1) With the Ravens and Browns losing, the Bengals now have a 2-game lead in the division

2) The Bengals now have wins over the Packers, Patriots and the Lions (on the road)

3) 5-2 just seems miles better than 4-3. Though there was plenty room for improvement, all in all, that felt like the best Bengals game of this young season.
