Power Rankings
Four consecutive playoff appearances means this is a good team, despite what the critics say. At some point, though, Marvin Lewis and Andy Dalton have to win a postseason game.
They have a deep roster that allowed them to take two players who likely won't start this season on their offensive line with the first two picks. They just need to get healthy, which they weren't last season.
Getting Michael Johnson back on defense will help. Now they have to get the offense healthy to help Andy Dalton.
At some point, the Marvin Lewis-Andy Dalton pairing has to win a playoff game. If not this year, there could be changes.
They are in the playoffs after beating Denver, but now they can win the division by beating the Steelers.
If they win their last two, they will be the AFC North champion. Beating Denver this week won't be easy.
That was a putrid showing at home against the Steelers. Now they face the Browns on the road in a big division game.
It wasn't pretty against Tampa Bay, but closing out a three-game road trip with three victories is huge. They have a big division game with Pittsburgh this week.
The defense is getting healthy, and that's showing in the past two weeks. Winning consecutive road games is never easy like they just did. Now they have a third at Tampa Bay.
Their defense finally played to expectations against the Saints. Andy Dalton was much better as well.
