The Cincinnati Bengals have jumped to another quick start to begin the 2012 NFL first quarter of the season, leading the AFC North with a 3-1 record along with the Baltimore Ravens, who is the only team to hand Cincinnati a loss on this young season. Having now won three straight games, the Bengals appear well on their way to making another playoff run in 2012. The Bengals shocked many people by winning the AFC wild card last season.
