Overall Team DVOA

-7.9% 21st

Nothing like a trip to the desert for a curative, as the Bengals found out by whipping the Raiders in Vegas, a win that boosts their overall DVOA four spots, making up for last week's bye week fall. Run defense remains the strength of the club, ranking tenth in that area. Cincy pounded the silver and black on the ground in the 32-13 win, but the running game remains blah, just 22nd in DVOA. Pittsburgh, the next Bengals opponent, profiles as a similar run defense, so look for Joe Mixon to loom large in the gameplan once again.
