Following a 23-16 win over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16, the Bengals have jumped back into the top-10 in many Week 17 power rankings including SB Nation's and Pro Football Talk's, which both ranked them at No. 8. Brian Billick of Fox Sports, who was in the broadcast booth for the game on Saturday in Paul Brown Stadium said, "I knew that quarterback Andy Dalton, receiver A.J. Green and tight end Jermaine Gresham were good players. But after calling their game on Saturday, I am even more excited about this young core of talent." Hopefully that talent can help the Bengals win again on Sunday agains the Baltimore Ravens so they can lock up a spot in the playoffs. The Ravens are ranked at No. 5 in the majority of the power rankings this week.
