24, 21, 20, 19 and 16

And only one game against a top 5 offense. That's awful.
I'm sure that's part of it, but at the same time there wasn't an offense in the league that put more pressure on their defense than Cincy. Seriously Bengal fans would have loved to have the Chicago offense last year.

Of course the Bengals are a cursed team (though I follow them a bit because I have ohio roots) and no team outside of Detroit should be compared to them. I just wanted to defend their honor a bit, defense is the one thing they played last year.
