9. Cincinnati Bengals, 3-3 (vs. Pittsburgh Sunday night)
Back-to-back losses are tough to swallow. The Bengals' season can go either way at this point. Their record says they're average, and by and large they've been an average team. But the Bengals have also shown they can score points, especially when Andy Dalton protects the football and utilizes his weapons at play. The problem is Andy Dalton doesn’t protect the football (9 INTs on the year) and it’s why Cincinnati sits just ahead of the 2-3 Steelers in the AFC North. (AP Photo/Michael Keating)
