The Bengals are back on the winning track, and fans are quite pleased.

Going into the team’s Week 8 clash with the Titans, the Bengals were riding a three-game losing streak, and fan confidence in the FanPulse survey had dropped down to 52%, one of the lowest marks it’s been in 2020.

Thankfully, the Bengals got off the mat and beat the Titans in the first real signature win of the Zac Taylor era. That result led to fan confidence rising up to 74%, the highest since Week 7 when the Bengals were coming off their first win of the season vs. the Jaguars.

A big reason why the Bengals upset the previously 5-1 Titans was the play of Joe Burrow, who continues to have one of the best rookie seasons an NFL QB has ever had.

So it’s no surprise to see 100% of votes were happy with Burrow’s Week 8 outing.

Burrow and the Bengals will get arguably their biggest test of the season in Week 10 when they face the undefeated Steelers, who currently rank third in opponent passer rating.
