Another dull week in Bengaldome, in my opinion. Boring win over a bad team with another bad team coming to town this weekend. Game still isn't sold out, might not sell out unless the Bengals eat a decent amount of the remaining tickets. Bengals heavy favorites, still talking about getting respect despite being a top team in the AFC by record. I think we've heard this before.
Anyway, here are a few links.
- Power rankings! CBS: 5. Fox: 4. Yahoo: 6. ESPN: 5.
- Chris Chase lists his 10 top plays of the decade in the NFL. The Bengals weren't involved in any of them, perhaps unsurprisingly.
- Pete Prisco gave the Bengals a B- for their win over the Browns. The cumulative GPA is down to a 2.95.
- Charles Robinson says the Bengals have been flying under the radar. Are we the best team in the NFL that no one is talking about? Cool video from Yahoo! Sports. We apparently have to win playoff games to get respect, despite the fact that we have the best scoring defense in the league.
Joe Reedy reports on some major storylines, including that Mike Zimmer is happy with the defense. I would be too, it's the best in the league.
