How confident are you in the direction of the team?

Last week: 89 percent

This week: 87 percent

Bengals fans are still high on their team, though it did drop a tad since last week, despite a 27-17 win over the Dolphins. Part of that is probably due to how bad the Bengals were through the first three quarters, as they entered the final frame trailing 17-3 before erupting for 21 points — 14 of which coming on defensive scores — to rally past Miami.

Another reason Bengals fans probably are slightly less confident this week is the matchup with Pittsburgh, who has won nine of the last 10 meetings. Cincinnati needs a win this Sunday to remind fans they’re capable of beating their biggest rival.

Will the Bengals win or lose in Week 6?

Odds: Bengals are 2.5-point favorites
