The Cincinnati Bengals are 8-0 for the first time in franchise history, that much we know. The only questions is, between the three unbeaten teams in the NFL, who will be number one, number two, and number three?

Connor Howe of Stripe Hype: #2

"Andy Dalton didn’t get enough credit for the Bengals’ win over the Cleveland Browns; he was fantastic. That being said, Tyler Eifert has been a matchup nightmare in 2015, and his presence in Cincinnati gives the Bengals the NFL’s most potent offense. The Bengals are 8-0 for the first time in franchise history, Andy Dalton is playing like a top-10 quarterback and Vontaze Burfict is back. If Cincinnati’s running game can take off in the second half of the season like it did in 2014, the Bengals could be a serious Super Bowl contender."

Peter King of and #2

"America’s new darlings? Perhaps. Another national TV date awaits this week, Monday night at home with the Texans, for a team that’s a serious threat to meet the Patriots in the AFC title game." Power Rankings: #2

"Tyler Eifert has been making Andy Dalton’s life easier. Dalton has completed 74.0 percent of his passes to the tight end this season with nine touchdowns and no interceptions."

Fansided Staff Power Rankings: #2

"Cincinnati continues to prove it is one of the elite teams in the National Football League. The Bengals are shedding the reputation of being a faux contender and at 8-0 are going to easily win the AFC North. The only question left before the postseason is whether Cincinnati can make the leap into a BYE week for the Wild Card round. Cincinnati has not been to the second round of the playoffs since 1991, the last time it won a game in the postseason. With the way the offense is playing led by Andy Dalton and A.J. Green, anything is possible."

Usually in we add Pete Prisco’s rankings but we do not have his yet and will have to update it. He rated the Bengals at #2 behind the Patriots and unless a miracle happens, I don’t think we will see a change. The Bengals take on the Texans on Monday Night Football and so we will have to wait an extra day to see if the Bengals can get to 9-0 and continue the incredible season they have had so far.
