Bengals Surging

Marvin Lewis' side find themselves unbeaten during this new campaign and displayed their playoff and potential Super Bowl credentials with an impressive overtime win against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Bengals came back from a 17-point deficit to defeat the Seahawks, and after the game several Cincinnati players said that the win was a statement of intent and a message to the rest of the league that they are legit.

Cincinnati left tackle Andrew Whitworth said that winning the game sent “a heck of a message” about this year’s Bengals.

Big Statement

Meanwhile, his longtime teammate Domata Peko said that the two men had been on plenty of other Bengals teams that couldn’t have pulled off such a result.

“That’s a big statement. Seattle’s been to the last two Super Bowls and they play just like us,” Peko said, according to the team’s website. “Their defense flies around, they have offensive weapons."

"To be down 17 points, other teams I’ve been on probably would have folded. This is a different team. Our eyes were still on the prize. We endured hardships and we bent, but we never broke," the big defensive tackle went on to add.

That encounter with the Seahawks is arguably one of the toughest games the Bengals have on their fixture list for the entire season. They take on the currently 4-1 Arizona Cardinals in week 11, before taking on the impressive and unbeaten Denver Broncos in week 17, in a game that will surely tell us if the Bengals have what it takes to make a playoff run.
