The Bengals defeated the Colts 34-23 on Sunday. This makes them one of the 15 teams (since the Steelers and Browns tied) to start the season (1-0). It seems the power ranking makers don’t know what to do with the Bengals at this point. They are as low as being in the 20’s and one ranking even has them inside the top 10.The team enjoyed a good outing from Andy Dalton and Joe Mixon , which should be a formula for success this season. Still the defense showed some cause for concern after getting destroyed on third down against the Colts. Then again, it isn’t every week you face off against Andrew Luck. And interestingly, Dalton fared better than Luck on Sunday.One thing for sure is the Bengals can get some real respect from the rankings by defeating the Ravens in their home opener on Thursday Night.Here’s how the Bengals rank in the Week 2 Power Rankings:ESPN: 23SB Nation: 14Yahoo: 19Washington Post: 8Bleacher Report: 16CBS Sports: 14Average Bengals Power Ranking spot: 15.6Bengals open as significant favorite over Dolphins The Bengals are 3-1 heading into their Week 5 matchup with the Dolphins.Cincinnati needed every last second to pull off a 37-36 road win over the Falcons on Sunday , which has this franchise back in prime playoff position after back-to-back non-playoff seasons.But don’t sleep on the Dolphins, who got off to a fast start before losing 38-7 at New England in Week 4. No one is faulting a team for losing on the road vs. the Patriots, and the Dolphins are still in good shape for a playoff run if they get back on track in Week 5.The Bengals are obviously hoping to prevent that , and oddsmakers expect them to. The early odds for Week 5 have the Bengals favored by 5.5 points at home over the Dolphins. It’s a pretty big spread for a matchup of 3-1 teams, not to mention the Bengals have a host of injury questions heading into this contest, though Joe Mixon is expected to make his return following a two-game absence with a knee injury. Still Cheap Joe Mixon Jersey , this is a game the Bengals should absolutely win at home. NFL Week 5 OddsColts @ Patriots -10.5 Ravens @ Browns +1.5 Jaguars @ Chiefs -3 Titans @ Bills +3 Giants @ Panthers -7 Broncos @ Jets -2.5 Falcons @ Steelers -4 Packers @ Lions +1.5 Dolphins @ Bengals -5.5 Raiders @ Chargers -6 Cardinals @ 49ers -3 Vikings @ Eagles -3 Rams @ Seahawks +7.5 Cowboys @ Texans -3.5 Washington @ Saints -7 Bye weeks: Bears and Buccaneers
