History and pundits always seem to point to the Bengals not looking like a contender in primetime games. I don’t know what it is about the bright lights, but there is some truth to the narrative. I think we see a different Bengals team tonight, however, due to the return of the man who brings life to the defense, Vontaze Burfict.due to the

Disagree with his style of play or not, there is no denying the impact he has on the defense both on the field and in the locker room. In fact, I believe his impact reaches the likes of the whole team. This game is not just about him, though. This game is about the Bengals as a whole and the urgency there is for a win tonight. Fans are begging for this team to wake up and play to the level that we know they can.

Can the Bengals rise to the occasion and bring the hammer down upon the Dolphins? Will Andy and the offense regroup and come out with more explosion than we have seen so far? Can the defense get back to the dominating defense that we have seen in the past? Against a team like Miami, I think they can, and think they do. What say you?
