Pro Football Focus’ PFFELO rankings are higher on the Bengals than most everybody, including the fans.

PFF’s rankings list the Bengals at No. 20, ahead of the Texans and Dolphins, both playoff teams a year ago. The former, of course, defeated Cincinnati last Thursday.

The rating is certainly unexpected. The Bengals haven’t cross the goal line in two games. There’s already been a staff firing, and Marvin Lewis could be in danger of losing the locker room. Quarterback Andy Dalton has struggled mightly.

In other words, there’s little reason to project things getting better, but perhaps PFF is seeing something everyone else has missed.
