The Bengals struggled early in the season but find themselves in position to make a playoff run.  Can the young team keep it together? After going a red hot 13-1 in week 11, I went 2-1 on Thanksgiving day.  For the season that makes it 106-57.  I'm still in striking distance of .750 for the season. Let's take a look at week 12. Minnesota at Chicago - The Vikings are coming off their bye week to face a Bears team that got destroyed last week by the 49ers.  The Vikings started off hot but lost several games after Ponder started to turn the ball over.  A weeks rest will help AP with his recovery and he'll be fresh to run the ball.  If Ponder can manage the game against the Bears defense the Vikings will win this game.

Return of the quitter…

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!  As Bengals fans, I think we’ve got a lot to be thankful for.  We’ve got a defense that seems to have a fire under their butt, a running game that is finally where we want it to be, a star receiver that has ball skills to match his humble personality and a Quarterback that isn’t a jerk.  This is the week I’ve been looking forward to all season...
