I can’t say I am a big fan of Pete Prisco and his Power Rankings over at CBS Sports, but man does it get lots of attention! Prisco says it is unreal that he gets truckloads of hate mail for simply placing a team in a spot on these weekly rankings. Even so, it is worth a mention that our Bengals jumped up a spot after the impressive win Monday Night to hit #10. Here is Prisco’s quote….
|10||Bengals · Trends||11|
“If the defense continues with the improvement it showed in the opener, watch out for the Bengals. We know the offense will score.”
The top 5 were unchanged from Prisco’s preseason choices, but Denver jumped from 9 to 6 after their squeaker W over Buffalo. And rounding out the rankings at #32, dead last, is this week’s opponent, the Cleveland Browns. Ouch!
