The Cincinnati Bengals Are In First Place In The AFC! – Lindsay Patterson


What a time to be a Bengals fan – First we should start with the game – the thrashing of the Ravens. I will admit I had the Bengals winning this game, but I didn’t see it going the way it did. We have talked all season about the offense and when it starts to click with the way the Bengals defense is playing it will be unstoppable. It is. This Bengals team after 7 weeks of football is scary – in the best way possible. Joe Burrow.

The QB has officially played in 17 games (1/2) and he is looking the part in year two. His WR Ja’Marr Chase might be the number one NFL receiver by the time we hit the end of regular season. This on repeat.

Joe Mixon on the ground is quietly having himself a season and the defense – the defense is everything Bengals fans have wanted for years and on Sunday they made it difficult for Lamar Jackson – 5 sacks only allowing 17 points. That was also the first time since 2005 the Bengals hit 40 against the Ravens. This team is special jump on board now because this ride should be a good time. I’ll be back on Thursday for preview and look to the Halloween road game vs. the Jets.
