Quick Take: Bengals are sneaky contenders

NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:

Why this game is intriguing: Which Bengals team will the Raiders see? The one that ran off three straight wins, or the one that stumbled to four straight losses? Much of the onus for determining Cincinnati's fate falls on the right shoulder of quarterback Andy Dalton, though the team did receive a boost when BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 100 yards last week. If the Bengals can pull it together, they'll improve to 6-5, making them sneaky playoff contenders.
