I heard somewhere that they lead the league in takeaways and that makes me wonder if they are getting lucky. I haven't seen any of their games, I was wondering if anyone could comment. The Chiefs hid defensive problems for a while behind an opportunistic defense that got to play with a lead in 2003. Makes me wonder if the Bengals are going to exit the playoffs early. Comments?

They're very similar to our 2003 team.

Great offense, weak schedule (Pittsburgh is the best team they've beaten. They beat Chicago, but that was back in the first month of the season. Other than that they've feasted on losers.), and their D is questionable.

24th against the run, 28th in yards per carry allowed. Only 20 sacks.

They are also 26th in 3rd down conversions allowed, which is not a good sign.

Hell their passing D is ranked 24th too. 24th against the run AND the pass. Not a good sign if you ask me.

Wow, I didn't realize their numbers were that bad, especially since they haven't really played and beat that many great teams.

They gave up 113 yards rushing to Jamal Lewis and 211 yards and 3 TDs to Kyle Boller....

IN CINCINNATI. :shake:

IN ONE HALF. ROFL

Could be.

Considering the fact that they don't play another decent team until they face us, we won't find out anything more about them until January.

I think they were up 37-0 before the Ravens scored.

To follow up on gochiefs' scholarship it looks like the Bengals have returned 21 punts this year, averaging 1.75 a game. Dante returned 29 in 2003 for an average of 1.71 (17 games). Don't know what this will mean in the end but I wouldn't bet on the Bengals to go deep in the playoff.

They might be weak in all those areas but they sure get me alot of points for my fantasy team....

ROFL... anyways, back to the main point... I think Jax AND Cinci are both the 2003 chiefs, and I do believe if Jax goes to New England to play for the Wildcard NE will advance...

If San Diego or KC gets in as the 6th seed, I think they have a very good chance to beat Cincy in Cincy...

JAX is the polar opposite of 2003 KC. Average offense, good defense.

I heard that spot fouls cost the offending team 35 points and 0 yards.

I was just lookin @ Jax wins/losses

2-2 vs winning teams (1 left - Indy)

7-1 vs losing teams (3 left)

Bengals 2005 record:

3 (2 nfc) -3 vs winning teams (1 left - KC)

6-0 vs losing teams (3 left)

Chiefs 2003 record:

3-0 vs winning teams (2 left - KC went 0-2)

8-1 vs losing teams (2 left - KC went 2-0)

Obligatory 2005 Chiefs:

3-2 vs winning teams (4 left - Dallas, NY, SD, Cincy)

That is unfair to call Jax offense average. They are horrible on O. They have to be in the bottom of the league.

I think they are somewhat of a paper tiger. They have played the easiest schedule in the NFL. They DO have a great offense, but I think their defense will be exposed sooner or later. Can someone post Indy's defensive numbers?
