I had a different takeaway than some others, though. I watched the Bengals and for the first time in my adult life, I was watching a legit contending NFL team. That was my takeaway. This bengals team is really good. The Bears are no slouches and they looked inferior to the Bengals for 3 quarters today. It's a long season. I like this team a lot.
It's awfully hard to win an NFL game on the road when you lose the turnover battle 3:1. If the home team is a decent one then forget winning. That's not my definition of outplaying anyone
