Can you believe they are 4 and 1???

I just can't believe they are good. They have beaten two good teams too.

Palmer is showing something and they actually have a good defense.

I am amazed and excited. My town needs a winner.

They shouldn't have beaten the Steelers. Dick LeBeau seems to have had a lobotomy in the off-season... I doubt they'll beat the Steelers the next time. Or the Ravens again.

Not trying to talk much smack - I'm not very high on the Steelers this year. I came into the season worried about Bruce Arians (OC). He still sucks, but somehow, the DC LeBeau has shit the bed the worst. The Bears game and the Cinci game were easy wins that the Steelers let go with horrible, horrible D. And, frankly, I'd probably rather the Bengals beat out the Ravens this year, if for no other reason than the Bengals will be an easier team in the playoffs. Plus Baltimore, blech. Can't stand that team.

I have alot of respect for the Steelers. They are a good team. I agree but you have to give the bengals credit. They made it happen just as much as the steelers let it go.

It is finally nice to have some excitement. Stealing some from Pittsburg.

The Bengals are one of many teams in the NFL that can be great early and midway through a season , but rarely are able to finish it off. My thought is that's how this season will end for them again.

I'm astonished at this, too.

Who'd of thunk it......"Child Please".

I never thought I'd say this, but Chad Ochocinco Johnson is really growing on me. I like how he's handling the hype....nay...managing the hype to his team's benefit. Too bad T.O. never tried this method. Terrell has done nothing to help me on my fantasy league...I'm dropping him...I think....I dunno...yep he's gone!!!!

Another amazing accomplishment is the start that Denver has had.....5 & 0 !!!!!!! I never would have gambled on this during all the preseason bullcrap that was brewing. I'm glad for them, if for no other reason that I have much respect and admiration for Knowson Moreno. I hope he has a super NFL career. It was cool seeing their coach really show his emotion and sense of accomplishment after the victory over the Pats.

Aww the bungles, I mean the Bengals. I don't know how they pulled it out against the Steelers, but they did. We need troy back in a big way.

I agree with Iacas, the Steelers are scaring me every game. However, they always start shaky and finish the season strong. The Pens are looking amazing though!

I gotta give them credit to Cincinnati, they're looking good. The Broncos too. They pulled it out against New England.

I'm a big bengals fan too and i am on cloud 9 because of this team right now. I'm not sure this team will implode because they actually have a good D this year and the schedual is in their favor. They also seem to have more resolve than previous teams. Baring injury, this year may be a 3 horse race in the AFC North.

I do not think we will lose both of our remaining games to the Ravens and steelers. I think we will split which should put us in great position.

It would be nice to blow a team or 2 out though.

Benson and Palmer are playing quite well. I am not a particular Bengals fan, but this year they are a great story. Chad 8-5 Johnson is the real deal, and he has some help developing in the receiver corp. The Bengals need Benson to be motivated, consistent, and fresh. I would like to see the rookie B. Scott get a few more carries to keep Benson healthy -- it is a long season.

They still get to play Kansas City (0-5), Detroit (1-4), Cleveland (1-4) Houston (2-3) and the Raiders (1-4).

They have six tough games left. They should end the season at 11-5 easy.

I just don't agree that you can compare this team to 2005 when we lost to the steelers in the playoffs. If palmer isn't hurt, there is no telling what the outcome of that season would be.

They actually have a defense. The first time in a long long time.

I have news for ya the Bengals are going to lose this week to the incredible Steelers and Big Ben with his 71% pass completions. I'm not sure how many QB's have finished a season or been at that % of a completion rate at this point of the season. How are the Bengals going to compete against that. GO STEELERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I live about 3 hours south of Cincy and I've tried to like the Bengals but I just can't. I'm a diehard Steelers fan. I don't hate the Bengals like I do the Ravens and the Cowboys but I can honestly say that they are playing very well and are no joke this year. But, come sunday night, I hope they're hurtin. Plus, Can Carson Palmer shoot in the 80's at Beth Page Black, I think not.

I think the game tomorrow will answer a lot of questions about whether or not the bengals have what it takes to make the playoffs.

The biggest factor in determining a team's playoff mettle is being able to upset a GOOD team on the road. If it's a close game, I'll give the bengals a little more respect (I don't think they have a shot at actually winning -- but if they can keep from being blown out...)

Let's see how Benson does against a real run defense too. Adrian Peterson couldn't even do much against the Steelers....... And I just don't like Benson, but it's personal.

After seeing this thread it reminded me of something I read on ESPN yesterday. Do you believe Chad Ochocinco should of been fined $20K for the "bribe" last sunday? He was just having fun, I think it's pretty ridiculous, especially 20,000 dollars.

Don't forget, Carson Palmer has been hurt the last few seasons. Last year, the Bengals were sporting Fitzpatrick at QB. Chad Ochocinco seems to be back to old fun Chad instead of "Diva" Johnson. Also, it seems like the defense has really stepped it up this year. It helps when the rookie up front Odom is having a pro bowl type season.
