Was it a win for the ages? Not quite.... But at least they won for the second time this year. The Bengals actually played a decent game for the first time in awhile. The Bengals have gotten crushed the 3 previous weeks by the Steelers, the Colts, and the Ravens. The three previous games were UGLY! But, I stuck by my poor Bengals and they were able to squeak out their second win of the season. They have played the NFC East much better than the AFC North. In honor of their amazing feat I have ended my blog strike and I will be covering the Bengals again. I am excited to see what changes are in-store for the Bengals this off-season. The one bright spot this year has been the play of the young defense. Under Mike Zimmer the defense has really turned things around and has given me hope that maybe someday the Bengals can have a complete team. They need to get better up front on both sides of the ball, but I don't think they are that far off from competing.
D's Upgrades for the Bengals:
- Oline Upgrade and get Carson Healthy (Center and OT)
- Find a pass rusher some how.
- Get a nice RB in the 3rd or 4th round.
- Re-sign Benson and TJ.
- Upgrade Depth.
Congrats Bengals on #2!!!
