The Bengals surprised a lot of people with early success last season. They've slowed a bit this year but let's not forget their youth.
I'm sitting at 84-49 heading into the weekend. I need to have a huge run to get over .750 for the season.
NY Giants @ Cincinnati - The Giants are coming off a tough home loss last week to the Steelers. I think last weeks events caught up to the Giants. I think their routine during the week with practice and meetings was thrown off and it ended up costing them in the game. The fact that they were able to play as well as they did is a testimony to how mentally tough they are. Giants fans shouldn't take anything away from this loss, they'll be fine.
The Bengals have not matured as much as people thought in the second year of Dalton/Green era. Cincinnati hasn't beaten a good team and are struggling. They have a couple winnable games left on the schedule, but they're not making the playoffs.
