Pro Football Focus has some bad news for the Bengals

Remember in the preseason when the Cincinnati Bengals' schedule looked like one of the weaker ones in the NFL?

Well, never mind that.

Pro Football Focus ranks the Bengals' remaining schedule as the fourth toughest.

That's particularly problematic since the Bengals are only 3-4 so far despite facer a weaker slate than the one that awaits them the rest of the season, beginning with surprising Jacksonville this Sunday.

PFF projects the Bengals to finish with 7.5 wins. That would leave them in third place in the AFC North behind the Steelers (11.3) and Ravens (8.1).

The Browns are projected to win 2.4 games, although we're not quite sure how that works in real life.
