The Cincinnati Bengals have dug themselves into a deep hole after losing four consecutive games. The high hopes of this team that started 3-1 seemed to be dashed in the midst of this free-fall.

Let’s take a look at five improvements that the Bengals can make to come away with a victory against the Giants.
