One win at the bye.
Last year, it was 1-4. This year it's 1-3. And Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis went to great pains Monday to show his team that they aren't far off from where they were last year at this time before coming out of the bye to win seven of their last 11 games.
At their Monday meeting, players said Lewis wheeled out charts comparing their numbers at last year's bye compared to this one and while there are some jarring differences (giving up more than 40 yards per game on the ground and a 20-point difference in passer rating), the numbers aren't that far off.
