Each Monday, Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc. breaks down games from the previous weekend. Today, he looks at the action in Week 13.

Bumblin' Bengals: The future in Cincinnati is extremely promising. But on Sunday, the special-teams mistakes and penalties were totally unacceptable on the road against a team like the Steelers. The Bengals also got whipped on offense and defense, but the self-inflicted wounds are what stood out in the 35-7 loss, especially early in the game when the score was close.
