The Cincinnati Bengals are AFC North champions for the third time since 2005. This, after today’s 42-14 win over the Minnesota Vikings combined with a Baltimore Ravens loss to the New England Patriots.

It’s the third division title since 2005 , all of which came under the watch of head coach Marvin Lewis. In that same time frame, both the Ravens Pittsburgh Steelers have won the division three times.

The one thing both of those teams have is a Super Bowl title, which is the team’s goal , despite an onslaught of injuries to critical players, including Pro Bowlers Geno Atkins and Leon Hall.
