Bengals Season Update

SEASON UPDATE. After the Cincinnati Bengals blowout loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Bengals have fallen to an uninspiring 2-6-1. Losing four of their last five games, their playoff hopes look very bleak, trailing four games from the wild card spot and seven games from their division leader, the Steelers. Having high hopes to start the season after drafting Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow and signing some defensive players like DJ Reader, Vonn Bell, Trea Waynes, this team is clearly still in rebuild mode. They will need to get more talent on this team if they want to compete for a Super Bowl, let alone having to go through one of the toughest divisions in football.
