Default Bengals game in 2 weeks - Must win?

I think it is.
If you look at Cincy's schedule the rest of the way, they could easily be 12-4 with a win over us in 2 weeks. They would also hold the tie breaker at that point.
If we want to win the division we have to have this game. I never would have thought this game would be the biggest on the schedule this year, but it clearly is.

Nope unless a week 10 game will keep them out of the playoffs, it's not a must win.

It is as far as I'm concerned.

How would you like to live here?

The Bengals have an easy stretch for the next few games. And then reality hits them.

Here's to taking the sole division lead.

Pretty sure our next game is against the Broncos and that's the only game that matters at this point. We have to win that game since they are an AFC Team and currently have 6 wins.

Looks like I picked the right game to come down to the Burg for this year to root my Steelers on in person.
The week we play Denver after the bye, I believe the Ravens play at Cincy so I think we may need to cheer for the Ravens in that case....although I am not sure I could actually do that :)

Not only is Denver the next game, but we still have both Ravens games to deal with. The Steelers and the Ravens always hit each other hard and give each other their best. Any given Sunday, my friends.

It sure wouldn't hurt to have the Ratbirds and Bungles spit..............and then to have us take care of business with 2 Ravens wins.

If you'd like to be technical about it, then in 2 weeks and 5 days we play the Bengals.
Or in 2 games we play the Bengals, not 2 weeks.

Sure, I want the team to focus on Denver this week and not even think about Cincy.
But as fans, we can look ahead and if someone said you could only win one of the next 2 games, but not both, you better believe we need the Bengals game more than the Broncos game. It's a more important game from a standings standpoint, no doubt.
Just like a would have traded a loss yesterday vs. a win against the Ravens, Bengals, or Broncos if given that choice.

Games against AFC North teams are always the most important, then games against AFC teams, then games against NFC teams. So the game against Cincy will be very important but our next game against Denver is important too.
