All of the signs were there....KC was on the cover of SI, they were coming off a too-easy win, they were going on the road, Cincy was hungry.

And yet it's still weird to see Cincinnati be the team to knock off the Chiefs. This is the franchise's biggest win in literally 12 years.

Because I'm an idiot, I didn't pick the upset despite being pretty certain of a Bengals win. Yeesh.

Don't forget Chad Johnson's "guarantee" which, like it or not, drew alot of media attention to a Bengals home game. I don't agree with those kind of things, but my guys stepped up big time to back him up and as you said, won their biggest game in over a decade. With Baltimore losing, we're on top of the division and have taken one more step to legitimacy.

I didn't hear anything from Boomer, but you could tell Collinsworth was grinning ear to ear going into the Fox halftime show and they end up showing no clips... :-(

Still, I'm going to work with a big grin in the AM. :-)

Goddamn SI. Ruined my Cubs, the Sox, and now my Chiefs. Knew what was coming as soon as I saw it in my mailbox on Thursday.

Collinsworth did the Green Bay/Tampa game, and they did break in for a Game Break to talk about the Bengals win. James Brown did it for Collinsworth's benefit.

I still can't believe the former "Bungles" are tied for 1'st place at 5-5. As of right now, I have to say they could take the Ravens and they might just win the division (are we in Bizarro world?)

Dude, the National Parity League IS Bizarro World.

But at least for this week, in a GOOD way.

Oh but I did! I really really did. It's stuck away in the thread about Boller being injured, but I still called it.

I'm just glad I forgot to put the smiley in after it so that I can feel all smug and clever now ;)

Boomer was proudly showing off his Bengals helmet on the desk during the CBS postgame show, and you could tell he was delighted.
