4 winners and 6 losers in Cincinnati’s defeat to Los Angeles

4 winners and 6 losers in Cincinnati’s defeat to Los Angeles

Joe Mixon was busy against the Chargers’ defense, but crucial errors popped up once more in the Bengals fifth-consecutive loss. In their first game in the Los Angeles-area in nearly 30 years, the Bengals fell just short of completing one the NFL’s biggest upsets of the year. Cincinnati managed to easily cover the 14-point spread against them, but usual mental shortcomings managed to prohibit them from closing the deal. Here are our winners and losers from the Bengals’ 26-21 loss to the Chargers. Winners Joe Mixon: From the beginning of the game, the Bengals made it clear that Mixon...

Bengals hang around but come up short, lose to the Chargers 26-21

Bengals hang around but come up short, lose to the Chargers 26-21

Despite trailing for most of the game, the Bengals hung around and made things interesting. Unfortunately, they couldn’t close the gap. The Bengals escaped the cold weather of an Ohio December and took a trip out to sunny southern California to face off against the Chargers. For the second week in a row, the Bengals would be playing a team fresh off of a win against the Steelers. But the sun would not shine on the Bengals, as they lost a close won to Los Angeles, 26-21. Jeff Driskel’s best friend was Joe Mixon. The running back touched the ball over 30 times and rushing for over 100...

Final injury report: Vontaze Burfict and Dre Kirkpatrick out for Sunday

Final injury report: Vontaze Burfict and Dre Kirkpatrick out for Sunday

Joe Mixon practiced and will play, but he won’t have his left tackle to run behind for the second straight week. The Bengals defense will travel to the West Coast less healthy than they were this time last week. At linebacker, Vontaze Burfict will not play after missing all week of practice with a concussion he suffered against the Broncos. Burfict had been playin MIKE linebacker ahead of Hardy Nickerson, who filled in for Preston Brown when he was place on injured reserve a few weeks back. With Burfict now out, it would seem that Nickerson will be the starter once again at that...

Thursday injury report: Joe Mixon remains limited

Thursday injury report: Joe Mixon remains limited

One of the Bengals’ best offensive players remaining has yet to get a full practice in so far this week. It was a mix of good and bad news for the Bengals on the practice field today. With the news of A.J. Green being placed on injured reserve from yesterday, the Bengals had just four players that did not practice today. Defensive starters Vontaze Burfict and Dre Kirkpatrick remained sidelined with a concussion and ankle injury, respectively. Cordy Glenn’s back injury also seems to be still prevalent as he’s on track to miss his third game in a row. Tony McRae’s concussion should...

Wednesday injury report: Joe Mixon and Carlos Dunlap limited

A banged-up Joe Mixon is not what the Bengals’ depleted offense needs. Despite having many of its injured guys already on injured reserve, the Bengals still had a long list of injuries during Wednesday’s practice. The most notable were Cordy Glenn (back), Dre Kirkpatrick (ankle) and Vontaze Burfict. Glenn has been out several weeks now, while Kirkpatrick and Burfict just sustained their injuries on Sunday. As for the limited guys, both of the Bengals’ starting defensive ends are banged up, as Michael Johnson (pectoral) and Carlos Dunlap (hip) didn’t get in a full practice today....

Comparing Bengals players to other NFL stars and how to better use them

Comparing Bengals players to other NFL stars and how to better use them

There is a lot of talent on this roster that is simply waiting to be used properly. A promising start for the Bengals has dissolved into another miserable season. While the most competitive teams are finding creative ways to use their best player, the Bengals are wasting the prime and years of their young players. Here are some of the players they are underutilizing and players on other NFL teams who the Bengals should use them like. Joe Mixon - Alvin Kamara - New Orleans Saints Mixon has averaged 15.4 carries per game this season which is two more than Kamara. The Saints, however, use...

Bengals News (12/4): Cincinnati could use more Joe Mixon with no A.J. Green

With A.J. Green going on injured reserve, the Bengals will have to ride Joe Mixon to the end of the season. Notebook: Green Joins Dalton On Shelf; More Mixon?Wide receiver A.J. Green booted through the Bengals locker room Monday wearing the dreaded thing and the fear is when the specialists re-examine his turf toe he’ll undergo season-ending surgery. There are reports Monday night that Green is headed to a surgical procedure to repair torn ligaments but that he’ll be able to be on the field in the spring. The concern is that the condition will get worse if he plays any more, like the...

Bengals RB Joe Mixon on dealing with adversity — ‘Give it 100 or stay home’

Through his first two seasons in the league, Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon has been a game-changing factor in the backfield for the franchise. It is something that he has taken much pride in for behind his consistent effort on the field. He believes that no player should give less than 100 percent effort […] The post Bengals RB Joe Mixon on dealing with adversity — ‘Give it 100 or stay home’ appeared first on ClutchPoints.

HT: The Broncos will bottle up Joe Mixon just like they have so many other RBs.

They’ve done it to better backs again and again. They’ll do it to Mixon too. As we lead up to Sunday’s game against the Bengals, some talking head somewhere is inevitably going to go hunting through box scores and other basic stats and then turn around and start spouting about the Broncos’ exploitable run defense. That’ll be your signal to ignore that particular talking head- even if it’s one that’s usually competent like Tony Romo. Here’s what you’ll hear: The Broncos have given up 1,354 rushing yards. Teams are gaining 4.7 yards per carry against the Broncos. The...

The Bengals collected plenty of canned foods in order to help out those less fortunate. Notebook: Joe Looks To Jolt Offense; Savage GameNo one is going to ever point to Bengals running back Joe Mixon and say the man has tanked it. Just look at last Sunday’s second half against the Browns, an all-out effort that yielded 89 yards rushing and 66 yards receiving despite that 28-0 hole.

Bengals vs. Browns: Which players should fill your fantasy lineup for Week 12

Who should be in your fantasy lineup when the Bengals take on the Browns? The Bengals and Browns matchup this year will be slightly different than in past seasons for fantasy fans. Rather than just rushing to stick as many Bengals in your lineup as possible, you should be trying to get plenty of players from both sides in there. Here are this week’s starts and sits for when the Bengals host the Browns: Must start Nick Chubb (Browns RB): I’m willing to receive the criticism that will undoubtedly be headed my way for having Chubb as a must start and not Joe Mixon, but when Mixon starts...

5 Bengals to watch for against the Browns

5 Bengals to watch for against the Browns

Monitoring the defensive line rotation and Joe Mixon’s usage will be crucial factors in the Bengals’ first meeting with the Browns. The Bengals and Browns don’t usually meet for the first time in a season after Thanksgiving, but that is the hand they’ve been dealt with this year. Because of this, each team has a good read on what the other squad is now that the season is more than halfway over. For Cleveland, fresh life has been injected into the team since the firing of both head coach Hue Jackson and Todd Haley and the offense seemed to resonate this in their last game against...
