The Cincinnati Bengals are now 8-0 and are in sole position of the AFC North. Although every game hasn’t been flawless, the Bengals have won and at least one player has been worthy to call himself MVP. In week one, Tyler Eifert took the first MVP award. Eifert went for 104 yards and two touchdowns on nine receptions against Oakland. Due to his performance, the Bengals took their first victory beating the Oakland 33-13.

In the following week, the Bengals came home to Paul Brown Stadium to play another AFC West opponent in the San Diego Chargers. The Bengals, took another win by beating the Chargers 24-19 in largely due to the effort of Giovani Bernard. Bernard won the week two MVP for rushing for 123 yards on 20 carries, which is an average of 6.2 yards per attempt.

In the ensuing week, another Cincinnati Bengal became the MVP. A.J. Green took over in the shoot out verse the division rival Baltimore Ravens. AJ Green put up 227 yards and two touchdowns on 10 receptions. With Green breaking out, it completed a third week in a row that Cincinnati has had three different break out stars. The win boosted the Bengals to 3-0 and it was mainly due to A.J. Green’s success.

In week four, the “Red Rifle” finally got his recognition. Andy Dalton won MVP in week four due to his play against the Kansas City Chiefs. While the Chiefs have not been that good in the record column, Dalton still had to go out and face a very good defense. Andy Dalton finished with 321 yards and one touchdown. However, it wasn’t just the yards that lead to Dalton being named MVP. Dalton threw for over 300 yards and yet had no turnovers.

Andy Dalton continued his success in the week 5 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Although Dalton threw 331 yards, two touchdowns and also adding one on the ground, he wasn’t the only player deserving the MVP award. The MVP of week five was Andy Dalton and Adam Jones. Jones sparked the massive comeback and allowed Dalton many chances to shine.
