Yeah but we are not that team that beat Baltimore way back then. That team would have beat these Bengals by 20+

We're trying to find our way back to being that team, we need that team next week. But right now, that's not us.

The Bengals have a top 5 defense. Over the last half of the season they were something like 7-1 and had held opponents to 12 ppg. I don't understand why people are giving them so little credit.

Remember when we had the poll that asked whether the 2011 bengals were better or worse than the 2012 bengals and something like 70 versus 2 people said 2012? What happened to that sentiment. We beat a good team -- a good defensive team -- in the playoffs

I don't doubt that we beat a good team. I'm just saying we are not... at least this past Saturday, we were not as good as the team we were at the beginning of the year. Then, we averaged 28 points. Now, we're the team that averages 17 points.

When we played Miami early this year, we scored 30 points on what was a good defense at that time (they finished the season at 7 in points allowed, 19.8ppg). Denver finished allowing 18 ppg, we scored 31 on them. Baltimore finished allowing 21 ppg, they were better than that when we played them & we still scored 43 on them.

Throughout that time, playing those teams, everyone here was upset that we didn't score more. So if you believe we put some points on some really good defenses earlier in the year & could have hung quite a few more, then maxing out at 19 points against the Bengals... we're not where we were. There's still room for improvement & we need to improve if we're going to beat New England.

Keep in mind, we were scoring all those points on all those defenses with a scrub like Schaub at QB & the worst right side to ever start on an Offensive Line.
