Who would have thought they would be in the position they're in right now? Top of their division, already won 3 divisional games. Cedric Benson doesn't look like a bust anymore, Carson Palmer has led 3 straight game winning drives and looks like he's heathy and playing like everyone expected of him. That defense is playing very well. I wonder how long it will last though, but so far, I'm impressed.

I had a feeling before the season started they would be a better team, I told friends and family(Ravens and Steelers fans) to watch out. It seemed like to me that Ochocinco has his head on straight based on his twitter page, and Palmer is healthy, and with the recents drafts taken some good defensive players. I thought they would win between 6-8 games, looks like there may be more in store for them.

After seeing the game yesterday, I was really impressed with the Bengals. The Ravens are a very good and well balanced team, but yet the Bengals beat them in all phases of the game. The Bengals made some awful mistakes during the game and should have won by more. Their defense is looking very good, especially the linbackers. On offense, their offensive line is very good. They are the first team to rush for 100+ yards on the Ravens since 06 and gave up few sacks aginst the best D in the league.

Currently the best team in the AFC North.

I don't think Palmer is playing very well, compared to earlier in his career, except for right at the end of games. He seems to get everything together at the finish but isn't playing at his highest level at other times.

Defensively I thought Cincinnati did pretty well. They hadn't been on our screens here for a while and they're definitely a lot better on that side of the ball than when I saw them last.

If they could cut down on some of the sillier errors, the Bengals wouldn't be having to win close games within the last minute or so. Credit to them, however, for being able to pull out wins against all but the undefeated Broncos.
