The 2 best teams are the Saints and Patriots.
Both teams can get knocked off by.....MATCH UP problems.
I'm not disagreeing with the spirit of this statement (I'd put the Packers slightly above the Saints but it's honestly pretty damn close), but here's one crucial distinction you miss, murf.
YES, the Pats, Saints, Packers and, for that matter, the Steelers do have superior talent to the Bengals (though the Pats' difference isn't as great as many might think with that defense). Because of this, yes, they can lose at any time due to matchups, but the probabilities suggest they will make the playoffs more times than not, and thus give themselves more chances to win.
The Bengals, on the other hand, hope to catch a flier every so often and use it as proof that they're a real organization.
