Previous ranking: No. 9
The Bengals continue to brawl on offense – a problem you can trace back to January. The main culprit remains the offensive line, which has four new starters but continues to drop Joe Burrow, who was sacked six times in a 20-17 loss to the Cowboys. Despite struggling up front, Burrow led a fourth-quarter comeback that tied Cincinnati, and after a Dallas punt, the Bengals were put in place with the ball and 2:13 remaining on the clock. It was the Bengals’ moment – but as we saw against the Steelers in Week 1, they let it slip away. Cincy made three outs, allowing Dallas to take over and march to the winning basket. Something is happening in the Queen City.
