Coley Harvey, ESPN: What it means: The Bengals are finally showing the football world that they are who many of us in the preseason thought they would be. Now that the end of regular season is almost here, the Bengals are preparing for a postseason run by flexing their muscles against teams they have to beat. Following last week's seven-point win on the road at San Diego, this weekend's dismantling of a division leader proves that they ought to be taken seriously during the postseason.
