The Cincinnati Bengals had a decisive victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, leading to their trip to the top of the AFC standings! We break down the win and what it points to ahead for the Bengals.

We also provide context for Ja’Marr Chase’s continuing dominance with a Stat of the Week and a State Your Case segment. Cincinnati also has a tricky one coming up against the New York Jets, and we preview that Week 8 clash as well.

What was covered this week:

  • The statement made by the Bengals in Baltimore was a huge one this week.
  • Confidence is breeding in this Cincinnati team—it’s stemming from the coach, the quarterback, but also seemingly in players trusting each other to take care of their respective responsibilities.
  • A scary thought for other teams: we still haven’t seen the absolute best out of this Bengals team yet with limited breakout games by Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins, as well as some defensive players potentially returning from injury sometime in the future and continued development on the offensive line.
  • Be it in obvious statistical areas, or those “under the surface”, Ja’Marr Chase is dominating the NFL in the first seven games of his professional career.
  • Would Chase have the same level of success had he been paired with any other quarterback aside from Joe Burrow?
  • The Jets are a mess, but the Bengals can’t afford to overlook them.
  • And more!
