Bengals Are Most Vulnerable


The Cincinnati Bengals lead the AFC North at 5-2 with wins over division rivals Pittsburgh and Baltimore, but that particular pedestal is a bit shaky right now. They've lost sackmaster Antwan Odom for the season, the Steelers are rounding into fighting shape with Troy Polamalu back in the lineup, and the Ravens, might be the best 4-3 team we've seen in a while -- they just whacked the previously undefeated Broncos.

In past years, the Bengals have been a team with a great deal of talent and an equal amount of drama. It remains to be seen whether they'll be able to show what they did when they face the Steelers and Ravens again (by the way - those rematches comprise their next two games). If they do, they'll have pole position all the way, but it may be more than they're capable of.
