Happy Thanksgiving! The Cincinnati Bengals are 6-4 entering Week 12 and have plenty to be thankful for this holiday season. Let’s dive into three things in particular that this fan base should be thankful for.

3. Team is in playoff contention and has a shot at the AFC North title!

Ahead of the season, not many people would have realistically chosen the Cincinnati Bengals to hoist the AFC North crown when the season was over with. The Ravens and Browns were the two favorites to win the division prior to the regular season kicking off and the Steelers, while expected to take a step back, were still more well-thought-of than that of the Bengals.

Well — We’re now 11 weeks into the 2021 regular season and the Bengals are in the AFC North race just as much as everyone else. They’re currently second in the division with head-to-head victories over the Ravens (currently leading the division) and Steelers. WynnBET has given Cincinnati the second-best odds to win the AFC North.

If you had told any Bengals fan that the team would be 6-4 and vying for not just a playoff spot but for the division title this late in the season, they’d have been jumping for joy.
