They were certainly able to take the defending World Champions to overtime in their own house...

Just like every Cowboy Game, the offense produced, the defense couldn't get pressure on Palmer and couldnt stop the WRs.

First 3 possessions the Cowboys looked like an unstoppable machine capable of 40-50 points. Defense was performing nearly as efficient as you could ever ask any defense. Then they decided ok, we are winning, we are winners, this game is over and took a break. The Bengals never did!! Therefore, jumped right back in the game and by doing so upset the gentle balance that is the Cowboys EGO. Romo was throwing like a H O M O! Once again the WRs were struggling to catch balls. Felix and Barber looked like mad men out there running and doing their jobs near perfection.
They are already showing signs of the end of last season when everyone decided they had the playoffs wrapped up. NOT SO! Play the entire 60 minutes of football or dont show up. These guys get paid way too much money and have too much talent to not be able to maintain composure for an entire football game!

So if that's your explanation for the Cowboys (who never once trailed in the game)performance against the Bengals, then what's good for the goose is good for the gander, right?

Are the Giants suffering from similar psychological issues, or are the Cowboys the only ones who are expected to blow out teams with poor records?

Two weeks ago, those same Bengals played their hearts out at The Meadowlands, and forced the (defending Super Bowl Champion) Giants to beat them in overtime. If Palmer doesn't inexplicably burn 14 seconds off the clock at the line of scrimmage at the end of regulation, it may very well have ended right there with a Bengals win!

2 of the Bengals losses were away games against NFC East powerhouses where they fought hard to make the games close. Another one was without Carson Palmer at QB. Yet another was a close game at Baltimore.

Other than the game versus Cleveland (with Ryan Fitzpatrick in place of Carson Palmer at QB), the Bengals opponents (Ravens, Titans, Giants, and Cowboys) are a combined 15-3!

All we know is that they are not as good as those teams, but are capable of playing them close.

It's a little early to push the panic button over a 9-point win against another NFL team (whose players and coaches get paid too). Don't you think?
