Though Cincinnati was well within the top-10 two weeks ago in your respective Power Rankings, the Bengals lost two straight against the Steelers and Ravens knocking them outside of the top-ten, ranging anywhere from 11th to 14th. Yet the general consensus is that the Bengals remain a strong player for a playoff berth with your generic "hard not to like this young team" comments. Personally I have to agree. This is perhaps my favorite Cincinnati Bengals squad during the Marvin Lewis era -- however that 2005 squad was pretty damned memorable, being the first to go to the playoffs since I was 12 years old.

That being said, here is your one-stop Week 12 Power Rankings:
