Apparently the pollsters that makeup the weekly NFL power rankings throughout the mainstream universe were so impressed with Cincinnati's 34-10 win over the Oakland Raiders, they not only showed favorable reaction, they nearly put Cincinnati inside the top-ten collectively. Pete Prisco, ESPN, Brian Billick and Pro Football Talk ranked the Bengals No. 10 whereas the NFL.com, Pro Football Weekly and SB Nation ranked the Bengals lowest, at a modest No. 13.
