What history tells Cincinnati Bengals about life after ties - ESPN
If the past 35 years are any indication, this season's Cincinnati Bengals ought to brace for a sub-.500 mark. That's because since the 1978 season, the year the NFL went to its current 16-game regular-season scheduling format, teams that have finished with a tie on their ledgers have gone on to win an average of 7.2 games. If we approximate that average to seven, it means that under the 16-game format those teams have finished with a 7-8-1 record. Those averages also take into account the strike-shortened seasons of 1987 and 1982, when the league played only 15 and nine games, respectively.
