56. <p>There are many reasons why the Bengals are 9-2 right now, but here are two: the Bengals boast the league’s leading interceptor (Reggie Nelson, six) as well as the leading touchdown receiver (Tyler Eifert, 12).</p> <p>Speaking of interceptions, Leon Hall took one back for a touchdown for the first time since 2012 on Sunday, the third pick-six in the Michigan product’s nine-year career. Rounding out the Bengals’ three-pick effort in Week 12 was George Iloka, who stepped in front of a Nick Foles pass to seal the win.</p> <p>Looking ahead, the Bengals must traverse through the Browns, Steelers, 49ers, Broncos and Ravens if they plan on finishing 14-2, which would put them in great position to compete for a first-round bye and possibly even the top seed in the AFC. Stay tuned.</p>. AFC North. 9-2. Cincinnati Bengals. 3. player

Next: 2. New England Patriots
