The Cincinnati Bengals have found themselves staring down a must-win game once again. They won the last time this was the case but now they're back to being two games under .500 and needing to desperately win and potentially salvage their season.
The problem is that they're facing a scrappy 1-3 Arizona Cardinals team. While the Cardinals sitting at 1-3 doesn't seem too surprising given that they were supposed to be bad, they've actually been playing pretty well through four games. They gave their first two opponents all they could handle but lost those games.
The next week, they stunned the football world by putting the hammer down on the then-undefeated Cowboys to get their first win. This past week they got blown out by the 49ers but didn't play poorly, even in a blowout.
The Bengals have not been playing well so if the Cardinals come into this game with the same energy they've had in their first four games, this could be yet another ugly outing for the Stripes.
