<p>Another September, another strong start for the Bengals. Is this the year that these cats capitalize on their fast break out of the gate? If A.J. Green continues to play out of his mind (227 yards and two touchdowns on 10 receptions in Week 3), it’s hard to bet against the Bengals.</p> <p>Looking ahead, the Bengals ought to be able to can the jet-lagged Chiefs next week, setting up a tilt at home with the Seattle Seahawks the following week. We’ll know just how substantive the Bengals’ September play was by Halloween. The door is wide open for Marvin Lewis’ team to take the AFC North by the throat while Ben Roethlisberger is injured and the Ravens struggle to get a win.</p>. AFC North. 3-0. Cincinnati Bengals. 3. player. 56

Next: 2. Denver Broncos
