The Cincinnati Bengals have a chance to end the era of Tom Brady’s Patriots

The Cincinnati Bengals have looked like the NFL’s top team so far. They have the fourth best yardage defense, the top scoring defense (just 33 points allowed,) and six interceptions with seven sacks and two fumble recoveries.

Jeremy Hill continues to see snaps (7 rushes for 39 yards and 1 TD), which may be the only roadblock for Bernard moving forward. He still remains a borderline RB1.

Running backs emerge as Bengals stay unbeaten
