What a win for the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday! The stripes entered Week 11 fresh off their BYE week and needed a win to right the ship after they dropped their last two games before the BYE. They got the job done, smacking the Las Vegas Raiders en route to a 32-13 victory in Sin City.

Now even though the final score indicates blowout, this game didn’t feel like a blowout. The score was 13-6 entering the fourth quarter and it was then that Cincinnati’s offense exploded onto the scene. Hey, at least they got it going and made this game look less close than it felt.

Still, it’d have been nice if the team could have gotten going before the fourth quarter. There are going to be games — as we’ve seen — where the team will need to be on point through all four quarters. This wasn’t one of those games, but at least the right result happened.

The Bengals now sit at 6-4 and would be in the playoffs if the season ended today. They’re still in a prime position to make a run at the AFC North title and everything they want is right in front of them, as cheesy as that sounds.

Before we officially put a bow on Week 11, however, let’s dive into the winners and losers from this game. We’ll start with the losers since there really wasn’t much to pick from this week.
