4-0, 1st in AFC North

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

According to ESPN Stats & Information, the Bengals have a chance to do something no AFC North team has done since the division was formed in 2002. They can go 5-0. The Bengals have started a season 5-0 only twice in franchise history (1975 and 1988, a Super Bowl year). Cincy hosts Seattle on Sunday.

Did Bengals move up the ranks?

Andy Dalton has led the Bengals to an undefeated record heading into Week 5. But, was their most recent win over the Chiefs enough to move them up the Power Rankings? Full list here

It's no surprise LB Vincent Rey is the Bengals' leading tackler with 36. According to Pro Football Focus, he's appeared on 279 of Cincy's 282 defensive snaps. Said DC Paul Guenther: "Vinny's a good guy to have on your team because he can play different positions. He's playing a lot right now for sure."

The Bengals' Kevin Huber was named today Punter of the Week by ESPN's Mark Simon. Mark highlighted two punts from Sunday's win over the Chiefs. One was a 67-harder downed at the 7. Another late was downed on the 1. Over the last three seasons, Huber has the NFL's best percentage of punts inside the 5 (7.2 percent; double the league average).

This is the year for Andy Dalton (1:28)

Bengals DC Paul Guenther was asked today about DT Brandon Thompson and what needs to happen for him to be active. Guenther said, "he's doing nothing short of what we're asking him to do." Thompson is simply the odd man out on game days for now. Could change, though.

Tirico: Bengals' growth, Panthers' potential

ESPN's Mike Tirico discusses the Dolphins' firing of Joe Philbin, the Bengals' development, the Panthers' chances to win the NFC South, Rams-Cardinals and the state of the Seahawks.

Marvin Lewis' primary concern from Sunday's win was that the defense gave up several "chunk" plays to Kansas City's offense. Pleased with how the game ended, but not the yards that were given up.


Hill rewards angry fantasy owners

Bengals RB Jeremy Hill flipped the script on fantasy owners who "were ready to crucify" him after a rough start to the season by putting up 24 fantasy points in Cincinnati's win Sunday. Put down the pitchforks

Time to talk Bengals as title contenders?

The Cincinnati Bengals are now 4-0. In one of the three other seasons the team started 4-0, it ended up in the Super Bowl. "Good Andy" and "Bad Andy" are gone, and now "Best Andy" is leading the team. 5 reasons to believe

Red Rifle rarely misfires

Andy Dalton has done an exceptional job taking care of the football this season, committing only one turnover. The Cincinnati QB thrilled fantasy owners with another 300-yard effort in Week 4. Fantasy winners and losers

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

As we leave Paul Brown Stadium, a parting thought. The other three times the Bengals started a season 4-0, they finished with 11 or 12 wins. One year (1988), they even went to the Super Bowl. This stadium has yet to see a Super Bowl season.
