20. Bengals finally earn first win of 2019

Just when it seemed like the Cincinnati Bengals couldn’t hit a new low in 2019, Monday’s 27-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers took place, leaving the team still without a win entering their Week 5 contest against the Arizona Cardinals.

Words cannot even describe just how much this offense needs A.J. Green in their lineup right now when looking at how much Andy Dalton has struggled to move the football down the field, but at least a favorable matchup with the Cardinals could help.

Despite settling for a tie opening weekend, Arizona is in a similar situation to Cincinnati in which they happen to be looking for that first win in 2019 after coming up shy a few times already.

Hopefully, the Bengals can figure out a way to take advantage of playing in front of their own fans in this one, and finally give Zac Taylor that first career win as head coach since most football fans assumed it would have happened by now.

After combining for just 57 points over their first four contests, maybe this will finally be the game in which Cincinnati displays that breakout performance on offense to finally get them on the winning track instead of adding more pressure to Week 6.
