29. Cincinnati Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals knew the rest of the 2018 season was going to be a difficult adjustment after Andy Dalton was ruled out for the year. But if Sunday’s loss to the Denver Broncos is any sort of preview of what the month of December is going to be like, the Bengals should begin looking ahead to 2019.

Even more frustrating, A.J. Green was forced to leave Sunday’s game with a foot injury to make things even more difficult for Jeff Driskel under center. In Driskel’s defense, the 25-year-old was put in a difficult situation with the Bengals since the offense had already been struggling for the most part, and he’s not used to being a starter in the NFL.

Now that Cincinnati has lost six of their last seven games, talk is beginning to heat up again over whether Marvin Lewis will be around beyond 2018 season, although Bengals fans are well aware this most likely means he will be back. It sounds bad to say, but Lewis has always been the kind of head coach who never has to worry about his job since no matter what, Cincinnati always seems to bring him back, even without a single playoff win to his name.
