With a convincing win over the Ravens the Bengals finally beat up a division opponent. Even though they finished .500 in the division Sunday’s win is a big step in being the next bullies of the division.
Another division crown will be for not if what is said to be the most talented Bengals team in years, doesn’t win a playoff game. One thing different about this year’s Bengals is they didn’t squeak into the playoffs as the No. 6 seed.
This year they are riding an 8-0 home record, a division crown, and a convincing win over last year’s Super Bowl winners. Here are 3 players that rose up and punched the Ravens out of the playoffs and sent them home for the winter.

WR – Marvin Jones
Jones has been playing more and more snaps the last few games and played the majority of them against Baltimore. There’s a reason why: He is just a better outside receiver then Mo Sanu and seams to make a spectacular catch each game:
Jones finishes his sophomore year with 51 catches for 712 yards and 10 touchdowns. Not bad for a guy who has rotated at the #2 spot and came via the 5th round last year.
