Just like how the Bengals Week 10 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers was the most important game of the Bengals season, their Week 11 game is now the most important game of the season. The Bengals are now on the edge of making their way into the playoffs. Losing just a couple of games could cause them to fight with other teams for a wildcard spot while winning this week and in the next couple of weeks could get them the division.
Since we're in the most important stretch of the schedule, we need to keep an extra close eye on the Bengals division rivals. So, here's what's going on around the AFC North this week:
