Despite entering Week 8 as seven-point underdogs, the Bengals were clearly the better team Sunday as they beat the Titans 31-20.

This was the first time in Zac Taylor’s tenure that the Bengals beat a team with a winning record, as Tennessee entered the week 5-1 as one of the AFC’s top playoff contenders.

But it was the Bengals who looked like a dangerous team that could be postseason spoilers over the second half of the regular season, especially with Joe Burrow continuing to play like a top-10 quarterback in this league.

The last time the Bengals beat a team with a winning record was Week 5 of the 2018 season vs. the Dolphins. So yeah, it’s been awhile, which made today’s win even more sweet.

After the win, our own Anthony “I Want Winners” Cosenza hopped on Facebook to break down the big win and what it means moving forward as Cincy gets a much-needed bye week.

Check it out. And as always, Who Dey!
