We have lost two road games on the road against VERY questionable opponents. If we continue this pattern we are going to be 9-7 this year. This team is going to have to learn to beat bad road opponents, and they need to learn NOW. We play at Cincinnati next Sunday, and the Bengals are amongst the worst 5 football teams in the NFL. If we play anything like we did yesterday against the Bengals still potent offense, we are going to lose 50-30.
True that. A measuring stick of a good team is that they beat the teams they are supposed to beat. On the bright side, hopefully they take something away from the adversity and use it against the Ravens and Patsies later on.
