Overall Team DVOA

8.6% 13th

Despite demolishing Detroit on Sunday, the Bengals actually dropped a spot in DVOA, though they are clumped tightly with a pair of teams they split OT games with, Minnesota and Green Bay. The Bengals step up in class this Sunday, traveling to Baltimore with first place in the AFC North on the line. The defense continues to shine, hopping up into the top five after holding the Lions to 11 garbage time points in the Battle of the Big Cats.
