The Bengals have their bye in Week Four, so moving into the top spot by next week won’t be possible. But the Bengals will have ample time to get healthy and make a case for themselves going forward.  The latest reports say the team is likely to get back Vontaze Burfict, Marvin Jones, and Rex Burkhead by Week Five.  It will be a welcomed boost for the Bengals as they’ll head to Foxborough to face the New England Patriots.  The Bengals beat the Patriots last year at Paul Brown Stadium, 13-6, while holding Tom Brady to his lowest point total ever.  If the Bengals can pull out a win at Foxborough, where the Patriots are near impossible to beat, they may find themselves atop these rankings heading into Week Six.
