Though the Cincinnati Bengals' season ended in all too familiar heartbreak, there were still games and moments that were impressive. As fall turned to winter, the Bengals were able to instill high-fives and beer showers from Who-Dey Nation.
We've already gone over the worst loss of 2014, so now it's time to bring a little sunshine back to CJ by reviewing some of the team's best wins. There were 10 of them and, as it is with the NFL, each one was huge in its own right. Here are the contributor votes for the CJ Award for the Best Bengals Victory of 2014.
Alberto Luque (AKA muertasdetenas): Broncos. Impressive outing on primetime by the Bengals defense.
Mickey Mentzer (AKA whodeyfans): The Back and forth against the Ravens (first matchup).
Jason Marcum: Broncos on Monday Night Football.
Nick Seuberling: Denver.
Anthony Cosenza: Loved the Denver win, for sure. However, I also thought the second win against the Ravens was huge. Before the re-match against Baltimore at Paul Brown Stadium, the Bengals were on a 0-2-1 slide after the bye, including two blowout losses to the Patriots and Colts. Cincinnati went on a 4-1 tear after that win.
