The Steelers play the Chiefs Monday.

All of these threads about our easy remaining schedule don't take into account that the Steelers and Ravens play similar schedules.

Boom.
You get my point though. This team hasn't beaten a really good team in a long time but they are capable of losing to anyone (even the Chiefs)

What's funny is if we beat the Giants this week, fans will be declaring that at 4-5 we're back on track.

When in reality, we should have been 7-2 or 6-3 with that win.

The Steelers were decimated when they beat us. Totally decimated.

The Browns hadn't won a game.

The Dolphins had a rookie QB starting.

Actually, when dealing with this team, they've been pivotal beginning with the Monday Night thrashing, and each week since.

Then after the winless Dolphins beat us, it sorta' quit becoming pivotal, for me. Now I'm here for the refreshments and guest speakers.

I like the trolls. As a bengal fan that's about all there is to be entertained.

Miami is 4-4.

Once again, we've had the 6th easiest SOS to date.

We also have the worst SOV in the NFL.

No matter how you slice it the 1st 8 games were bad.

So then we're back to me just hanging around for the refreshments? I demand my free share of that Kool-Aid, and cookies!

If the Bengals could stop turning the ball over, stop making mental mistakes, and actually get turnovers on defense...anything could happen.

With that said, they haven't done those things for 8 games so far...

All these games are winnable but the cowboys and chargers are very beatable. I see us beating them before we beat the Ravens and the Steelers (though as I said all games are very winnable). Chargers and Cowboys are about as inconsistent and vulernable as we are.

For the criticism Marvin Lewis gets from people on here, there's a lot of other inept coaches ahead on the schedule in the next 5 games where the same could be said of those teams and coaches which should make it fair game to the Bengals

However with a big win today we go from playing the Champions last year to playing who is as of now playing for the 1st pick in next year's draft so beware of the letdown game in Kansas City next week, we've seen this happen already with the trap game in Cleveland so I'm not taking a team like Kansas City for granted regardless of their record

Personally I think the Steelers will overtake the Ravens and they'll end up being 4 and 5 in the afc and meet on wildcard weekend anyway, having said that the Sunday Nighter we had with Pittsburgh felt a lot like a now or never game, if we couldnt beat them when they were at their weakest with injuries and most vulnerable, then it seems like we never will when they're only healthier and better

but first things first, Kansas City next week

All the Bengals can do now is focus on what they can control. The teams they play. If they play to their "potential" we may be shocked and be watching them post season.

As well they are capable of beating anyone. All depends on how you prefer to look at it.

You're right that it has the makings of a trap game. Can't take any team too lightly but I see us holding our own and beating them as we should. Will we dominate? We should but knowing this team we wont. Regardless I don't see us letting this win slip by. We seem to be getting hot (played Denver pretty hard and stomped the Giants) so if we are indeed getting hot this is no doubt a W. The Chiefs are pretty bad unlike Miami or even an improving Browns team.

I look at our remaining schedule and I see no game that I think we don't have a chance. Obliviously Pitt and Baltimore back 2 back will be tough. If we go into those games at 9-5 anything goes.

We really should win all of the other games, there's no excuse not to. The Baltimore and Pitt games should be a toss up, if the right Bengals squad shows up. We need to win at least one of those, and I don't care which. I hate them both equally....

Sure, it's possible. We should be favored over KC and Oakland, and no reason why we cant beat San Diego, Dallas and Philly. Of course, finishing with Pitt and Baltimore is tough. From this point, I would consider 9-7 and a wildcard berth impressive (which would require plenty luck since tiebreakers would not be in our favor with a poor AFC record).

The only way it happens is if the Steelers and Ravens are both resting their starters for a playoff run.
