Around this time in 2021, we saw the Bengals get demolished at home by their in-state rivals en route to a 41-16 defeat.
At least this time was a road loss in Monday’s 32-13 debacle at Cleveland.
Interestingly, that 2021 loss put the Bengals at 5-4 going into the bye week, and we know how the rest of the season turned.
This time, the Bengals have a chance to beat the Carolina Panthers this week and go into the bye week at, you guessed it, 5-4.
