Burfict’s return has sparked Bengals

The 2016 Bengals looked good not great during their first three games. In Week Four, a Thursday night contest against the Dolphins, the 2016 Bengals looked a lot like the 2015 Bengals.

One factor: The return of linebacker Vontaze Burfict.

Burfict, suspended for the first three games of the year, came back for Week Four and instantly supplied a spark to the defense, with his passion and intensity. Officially contributing only two tackles and an assist, Burfict’s mere presence, however, lifted the rest of the defense.

They’ll need more of the same on Sunday at Dallas, against a 3-1 Cowboys team.

    The Bungals are always jinxed and always will be, just like the Bills.

    That’s great but what does this have to do with the Vikings and Texans?

    Why are the Vikings tagged/linked to this story? Doesn’t make sense.
