Cincinnati won the AFC North for the second time in three years last season, but lost in the Wild Card Round for the fifth straight season. The Bengals will try once again to get over that hump this season, but will face a stiff test from the Steelers and Ravens, which are hoping for better health after stumbling to 5-11 in 2015.
The calendar has turned to July, which means it’s almost time for the NFL to get back to business. The regular season doesn’t start until Sept. 8, but teams will open training camp later this month, officially starting the path for what eventually will lead to Super Bowl LI in NRG Stadium in Houston on Feb. 5, 2017.
After winning four straight games, the swagger and bravado of the Seattle Seahawks (8-5) has returned, the latest triumph coming in the form of a 35-6 domination of the Baltimore Ravens on the road. Russell Wilson was brilliant once again with five touchdown passes as he is playing like a man possessed at the quarterback position.
There has been plenty to discuss in regard to the Baltimore Ravens (3-7) and Cleveland Browns (2-8) in the past week. Unfortunately, Monday night’s prime time matchup between these two teams has not been at the forefront of that discussion.
Thanksgiving Day was just the appetizer for Week 12 NFL and fantasy action. For the first time since Week 3 all 32 teams are in action, which means we still have 13 games to go between Sunday and Monday.
