Though the Bengals picked up a big win against the Colts, they appear to have lost one of their starting cornerbacks for the short-term.

According to ESPN, Newman could possibly miss up to three weeks with a sprained MCL, which would cost him the rest of the regular season. Of course, it's not out of the question he returns before then.

Even if the Bengals are without Newman, they're in good shape to win the AFC North at the moment. It would take quite a collapse for them not to wind up with a division title.
