Christmas comes early for the Bengals

Last Thursday, the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Philadelphia Eagles 34-13. The score was closer than it looks. The Bengals were losing to the Eagles 13-10 in the third quarter. The Bengals offensive line played like crap. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was running for his life. Then the Eagles decided to give the Bengals their Christmas presents early. The Eagles in the third quarter and fourth quarter, turned the ball over four times. The Bengals capitalized. Game over. Bengals win. Here's the story.

Today, the Bengals got more early Christmas presents. AFC North division foes Baltimore Ravens and the hated Pittsburgh Steelers both lost. The Bengals now trail the division leading Ravens by only one game. What? The Bengals now lead the Steelers by one game for the final Wild Card spot. The next game for the Bengals? It's at Pittsburgh. And yeah, I'm worried. I'm a Bengals fan. We expect the sky to fall on us. Let's just hope my pessimism is unfounded.
