How confident are you in the direction of the team?
Last week: 22 percent
This week: 15 percent
It’s been a rough stretch for the Bengals with seemingly no end in sight. Of the 32 NFL team FanPulse results this week, only five fanbases have less confidence in their team: The 3-6 Broncos, 3-6 Buccaneers, 3-6 Lions, 3-6 Jaguars and 3-7 Jets.
Thankfully, last week’s 51-14 debacle vs. the Saints led to a change being made at defensive coordinator, as Teryl Austin is out, and Marvin Lewis will run the defense now.
Even so, that wasn’t enough to raise the confidence level in Cincinnati, as fans are about as low on this franchise as they’ve ever been in the Marvin Lewis era.
Will the Bengals win or lose in Week 11?
Odds: Ravens are 3.5-point favorites
Baltimore Beatdown FanPulse: Ravens by 1
Cincy Jungle FanPulse: Bengals by 1
This is a tough matchup for the Bengals, especially with A.J. Green out. While the Bengals already have a win over Baltimore and still have some firepower, their defense has been unable to stop anyone this season.
The good news is Baltimore has struggled as of late, losing three-straight games. However, those were defeats to the Panthers, Saints and Steelers by an average margin of eight 7.7 points, so it’s not like they’re getting blown out like Cincinnati is.
