Cincinnati  Bengals (3-4-1)

Well, if you’ve been reading anything on this website, you know the issues with the Bengals. The defense is yielding points at an alarming rate and lacks a consistent pass rush. The offense’s high yardage has not resulted in many points. In fact, the Bengals are in the top 10 for offensive yards. Although red zone success is on the rise, as of late, the Bengals need more to win.

The Bengals are on pace to score 334 points this season, 85 fewer points than last year’s 12-4 team.

The team is hoping its fortunes turn soon. Since Tyler Eifert has returned, the Bengals have scored 58 points in the last two games. But the worries have to be on the defense. Former Bengal, Wallace Gilberry, was signed during the team’s bye week to add a familiar face and a veteran presence.

Can the Bengals take there new life and run with it, only being a half game out of first place?

Next Game: Mon, Nov. 14th @ New York Giants (5-3)
