This isn't at all the same.
If a football team can't be the Browns (and not particularly close either), things are going to get messy against real teams.
Bengals needed to have a hot start, because it is very obivous that the team is not a playoff team on paper. It wasn't last year either. They were okay and got some luck. This year, they are worse, and I don't think any amount of luck gets them to the playoffs.
