For Bengals fans, this show needs to stay at home and not go on the road. Here is a dream scenario for fans. 1) Denver, 2) Cincinnati, 3) New England 4) Indianapolis 5) Kansas City 6) Baltimore, and in this scenario, Baltimore loses at New England and Kansas City beats Indianapolis, while Denver and Cincinnati have bye weeks.

In the second round, New England plays at Cincinnati (remember the friendliness of PBS) and Kansas City travels to Denver. If KC can beat the Broncos, and the Bengals knock off the Patriots, the AFC Championship game will be KC at Cincinnati, which is very winnable.

Again, this is a dreamy scenario with 3 weeks of regular season football still to be played. As it sits, the Bengals haven’t won anything with two of the final three games are against arch rivals Pittsburgh and Baltimore. The Bengals just dominated a formidable Colts team and really need to finish well, at 12-4, tying the franchise best record.

Just remember, at 9-4, Andy Dalton and AJ Green now have three winning seasons in their first 3 years. The last time the Bengals had 3 winning seasons in a row was from 1975-1977. There is still a lot of football left to be played, but if this past Sunday is any indicator as to how dominant this team can be down the stretch, watch out NFL, because the Bengals are poised to make a run.
