NFL: Cincinnati, Dalton look to stay hot against dopey Dolphins
This just in: the Cincinnati Bengals are on fire.
Seems like only a month ago, we were wondering whether the tigers had anything in them, let alone this. Of course, it was a month ago. Andy Dalton was viewed as a replaceable part. A quarterback by default. The entire offensive scheme was built around A.J. Green and only A.J. Green, and Marvin Jones was no more than a guy to keep your fantasy eye on when Brian Hartline was on a bye week.
Of course, times have changed. The Bengals are 6-2. Marvin Jones has catapulted himself to legit status after three solid weeks at wideout, stamped by last Sunday's four-touchdown show-off against the New York Jets. Andy Dalton is suddenly throwing for scores and Green is... well, he's still Green.
The Cincinnati Bengals aren't just the class of the AFC North. If Denver and Kansas City don't watch out, Cincy could soon be leading the entire conference.
So. Good luck, Miami.
It sounds preposterous to even wonder if Tampa Bay could upset Seattle. The Hawks are 7-1. The Bucs are zero-and-a-whole lot. Seattle is contending for a Super Bowl. Tampa is contending for the first pick in next year's draft. Seattle has Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch. Tampa has [Insert Here].
Then again, nothing about Seattle's play has been convincing lately. Last week, a highly incapable St. Louis Rams defence sacked Wilson seven times (SEVEN) and stuffed Marshawn Lynch like a November turkey.
Add to that Golden Tate's quite despicable taunting from the 20-yard-line in, and Seattle might just deserve a loss.

You know how sometimes you watch these Red Wings v. Avalanche games now and you say to yourself, "Remember how amazing these games were, like 10 years ago or something?"
Well, the Steelers play the Patriots this weekend.
Get ready to relive the dream matchup from that Madden game where Daunte Culpepper was on the cover.
Don't look now, but the Green Bay Packers are 5-2, and I bet you're shocked you haven't been paying attention to them.
Aaron Rodgers is also ho-humming along with 15 touchdowns and four interceptions. Not bad for that that hasn't hit its stride yet.
The Pack get the Cutler-less Chicago Bears at Lambeau this weekend. So, they're basically 6-2.
Life isn't easy for the New York Jets in 2013.
Here they are, trying their darn-dest: Geno Smith is slinging his rookie best, Rex Ryan is turning a team in flux into a 4-4 overachiever, and the defence is hanging onto the ledge with the tips of its fingers, fighting every little bit to give this team a chance in any game, because it's most likely over-matched.
But now, the Jets get the New Orleans Saints. Drew Brees may be the only quarterback comparable to Peyton Manning, Jimmy Graham is the most dangerous tight end in football, and the Saints weapons around the table – Colston, Sproles, Moore et al – form the most potent offensive roll call in the NFL.
New York is just a team. The Saints are the best team in the NFC.
Kinda makes you forget this was three whole years ago:
