NEW YORK (AP) Comments on the Cincinnati Bengals by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):

---

CINCINNATI BENGALS (22)

Chris Berman (ESPN, 27) - Haven't won in a month.

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 22) - A four-game losing streak has seriously damaged their season.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 23)

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 26) - Four straight losses, not good enough to overcome all the mistakes.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 23) - Some promising moments for the Bengals, who led briefly in the fourth quarter against Peyton Manning's Broncos. But then it all fell apart, as it has the last month. Four straight losses, with the Giants up next.

Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 21) - The Bengals are closing out a make-or-break three-game homestand this weekend against the New York Giants. Thus far, it's been break as the Bengals have already lost to Pittsburgh and Denver.

Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 20) - The Bengals blew it when they didn't take advantage of an easy schedule. Now they suffer the consequences.

Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 22) - A four-game losing streak and an angry Giants team coming to town.

Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 21) - Andy Dalton is in the middle of a sophomore slump and a four-game losing streak. The five sacks last week were as troubling as the interceptions. The defense is giving up 27 points a game in the losing streak and it doesn't get any easier with the Giants coming to town.

John Lynch (Fox Sports, 21) - The Bengals slide continues, but they gave the surging Broncos a test on Sunday and looked better doing it.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 19) - The Bengals enter Sunday's home game against the New York Giants seeking to stop a four-game losing streak. The best way to start: Andy Dalton must end his eight-game streak of throwing at least one interception.

Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 21) - They have lost four straight, which is what happens when your quarterback is too nice a guy.
