First of all, I would like to point out, we are 2-1 and have a lot to look forward too! The bengals could be the first team in NFL history to sweep their division two years in a row. This bengals team could make the playoffs back to back season for the first time in 2 decades. And we play the browns this week!
I can not think of a better time to play the browns. Even though this game should be a lock but our history against the in state foe has hardly been one. Our games against the browns tend to be high scoring. This is the perfect time to wake up the sleeping giant (offense).
Much of the NFL is about momentum, team chemistry and staying healthily. I know everybody wants theBengalsto be 3-0 and beating every team by 30 points, but the fact of the matter is, we are not that team right now. The beginning of the season is more about staying in contention and the last 6 games tend to be the most important of the season. I say this because in the last 6 games of the season is when a team would like to gain momentum heading into the playoffs, while staying healthily.
I just have a great feeling about this team, even tho they are not playing up to their full potential right now. The season is still early and the perception of NFL teams change WEEKLY! The most important thing right now is to stay incontention and having something to play for. This will be the year, I just have that feeling!
