The Cincinnati Bengals take an 0-7 record across the pond for a matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.
Week 8 has the Cincinnati Bengals facing some significant crossroads in London. As they ramp up for a matchup against the Los Angeles Rams, it seems it would also be decision time with the trade deadline looming.
Then again, this is the Bengals. Deadlines and logic be damned, business, as usual, most likely prevails. Except maybe not this year.
This is a bad Bengals team. They are also looking at 0-8, A.J. Green again not playing, a quarterback in Andy Dalton in the twilight, a historically bad running game, and a head coach who seems to be living his first day as a head coach every single day.
Good times, huh?
The trip to London might be the breaking point. If the predictions are right, the Rams could light up the Bengals enough to force a new way of thinking that is long overdue. With a bye week next, Cincinnati could be in line for finally making some tough decisions. They need to. This organization isn’t a single draft pick away from turning it around. It’s several.
Rams versus the Bengals is a game that could be decided early. That said, if Taylor and the defense can find a way to get running back Todd Gurley under wraps, they might have a chance to pull an upset.
