The AFC North race, just like so many Bengals games, is far from finished.
Cincinnati has lost back-to-back games in overtime, wasting a chance to take a commanding lead in their division.
Now the Bengals (6-4) are only one game ahead of the Ravens (4-5) and the Browns (4-5) in the loss column.
Stirring comebacks have led to hollow endings in each of the past two games.

Marvin Lewis signals for 1
Yesterday while I was enjoying the Browns bye week, I caught the end of the Bengals game including the hail Mary and eventual loss in overtime to the Ravens. I couldn’t help but hate the way that one ended for the Bengals even though their loss was what I needed to see as a Browns fan. Quite simply, I couldn’t stand the fact that Marvin Lewis’ Bengals...

The Cincinnati Bengals played their best game of the season, and maybe in recent memory, on Sunday against the New York Jets and their better than average defense. The Bengals scored early and often, and on both sides of the ball, and wound up winning by a score of 49-9, the largest margin of victory in the Marvin Lewis era. There weren't a lot of negatives, but there were plenty...

There's no doubt that Geno Smith has been up and down during the course of his first seven starts as a pro, but there's been more good than bad according to Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis.
Geno Smith's 2013 season thus far has been a roller coaster of good and bad. In other words, he's playing the part of a rookie quarterback. Smith, however, has been a bigger part of the solution than the problem, and anyone who watches the New York Jets signal-caller on a week-to-week basis can see the coaster is progressively trending upward."You see him growing and...
