Of the mainstream power rankings that came out earlier this week, the one that surprised us the most was Brian Billick. Not because he ranked the team at No. 14 -- tied for highest among the rankings we follow -- rather because he didn't move Cincinnati from last week's No. 14 spot. On the other hand Pro Football Talk dropped the Bengals seven spots to No. 24, the lowest.
