It is no secret that the Bengals are on a roll right now, and the game against Buffalo a couple of weeks ago could have been either another feather in their cap or the game which finally put an end to that streak. This weekend, the Bengals will put their streak on the line, but in the postseason.

5. The Bengals have won nine games in a row. What’s been the number one reason for this streak?

“The defense has been a “bend but don’t break” unit. They allow offenses to move the ball but either hold them to three points or force a takeaway.”

6. What do you feel the Bengals’ greatest weakness is, despite this string of success?

“I mentioned the secondary earlier but the greatest weakness has to be the offensive line. The Bengals are missing three starters along the unit, including their left tackle, right guard, and right tackle. They managed to make it to the Super Bowl with a bad offensive line last year but they might not be so lucky this time if the protection doesn’t hold up.”

Funny enough, but the Bills and Bengals each have the same weakness. Last week against Miami, Josh Allen was sacked seven times. Still, everybody just wants to focus on those three turnovers. Chances are, the team that wins this game could be the team which keeps their quarterback upright the longest.
