State of the AFC North: Ravens don’t want to go back to London; Steelers lose to winless Bears

State of the AFC North: Ravens don’t want to go back to London; Steelers lose to winless Bears

John Harbaugh doesn’t want to go back to London anytime soon. The Browns have plenty of blame to pass around for their loss. Steelers somehow lose to the Bears. The Cincinnati Bengals fell to 0-3 this week, but at least they didn’t lose any ground in the AFC North, as the rest of the division lost their games. John Harbaugh isn’t hoping to return to London anytime soon after his team got embarrassed. The Steelers were involved in one of the more shocking upsets of this weekend. Hue Jackson says to ask the team executives about winning now. Baltimore Ravens (2-1) lost to Jacksonville...

NFL Power Rankings Roundup: Bengals stagnant at bottom of the barrel

NFL Power Rankings Roundup: Bengals stagnant at bottom of the barrel

The Bengals remain near the bottom of most power rankings despite going to overtime against the Packers in Green Bay. The Cincinnati Bengals had a little bye after losing in Week 2 to the Houston Texans. They decided to make a change at offensive coordinator before heading into Green Bay. It almost paid off as the Bengals looked competent as they scored their first touchdown of the season. Ultimately, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers finished the game off in overtime to win the game 27-24. The Bengals looked like the team we expected to see all season, but at 0-3 it could be too late for it to...

NFL Week 3: Bengals’ snap count distribution vs Packers sees rise in youth

NFL Week 3: Bengals’ snap count distribution vs Packers sees rise in youth

The Bengals made quite a few changes to the distribution of snaps against the Packers. Young players are coming for some veteran spots. The Cincinnati Bengals fell to 0-3 this week, but there were signs of optimism. The Bengals offense actually scored two touchdowns, and William Jackson took back an interception for a touchdown. Plenty of younger Bengals also got playing time this week. Andy Dalton turned in a fine looking game, but a few bad throws and decisions ultimately cost the Bengals their upset over the Packers. Dalton finished the day with two touchdowns and completed 21 of 27...

NFL Week 3: Bengals’ Most Valuable Player vs Packers

The Bengals lost a heartbreaker against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, but there were a lot of individual performances that gave us hope for the rest of the 2017 season. In what could be coined as a must-win game in Week 3, the Cincinnati Bengals put forth a valiant effort against the Green Bay Packers, but they came up short. New offensive coordinator Bill Lazor came up with a solid game plan that gave us a glimpse as to how things may be shaping up for the rest of the year. Here are the nominees for the Bengals’ Week 3 Most Valuable Player. Cast your vote and sound off on your...

Bengals injury roundup following loss to Packers

Bengals injury roundup following loss to Packers

While Tyler Eifert, John Ross, and others were ruled out going into Sunday’s game, there were a few injuries during the game. Tyler Eifert was held out of practice last week, perhaps using his free time to daydream about playing all 16 games in a season sometime in the far away future. Eifert has been dealing with an injury to his back, to which he had repairs done in the offseason. He missed a full week of practice leading up to practice, and is likely to miss a few more weeks while he nurses this injury. The only other Bengal to miss the whole week’s worth of practice was tackle Trey...

NFL Week 3 Bengals at Packers: Cincinnati’s goat of the week

NFL Week 3 Bengals at Packers: Cincinnati’s goat of the week

Yet again, some of the most prominent names on the Bengals’ roster were some of the prime suspects in the team’s 27-24 loss in Green Bay. Finger-pointing has become an en vogue practice in Cincinnati this year. It’s hard to say why said practice isn’t appropriate, given the team’s 0-3 start, but the practice does have a semblance of being a bit unfair—especially when singling out individuals in a team sport. Still, even though the Bengals made a valiant effort in one of the most difficult games on their schedule this year, there were some players who really let the team down...

Odds for Marvin Lewis to be fired before 2017 NFL season ends

Odds for Marvin Lewis to be fired before 2017 NFL season ends

Will Marvin Lewis lose his job? Will it come before the season ends? The Cincinnati Bengals are off to an 0-3 start, which has head coach Marvin Lewis squarely on the hot seat. That’s what happens when you follow up a 6-9-1 season in 2016 with a disastrous first three games of 2017. Including the final five games (playoffs included) of 2015, Lewis is now 8-15-1 over his last 17 games. Having nearly twice as many losses compared to wins is a good way to get fired, but Lewis should keep his job for at least a little longer. Will that be for the rest of the 2017 season? BookMaker.eu has...

Bengals Bytes (9/26): War of futility

The Bengals and Browns are both looking for their first win of the season on Sunday. Tyler Eifert is expected to miss multiple weeks. Darren Sproles is expected to miss the season after tearing his ACL. Marvin Lewis news conference transcriptSome of the questions yesterday were about how I felt about things we did on offense. There were a lot of positives, and we moved forward in a lot of ways. I thought the offensive staff did a good job, had a good plan. In the second half we weren’t very good on third downs, and that proved probably to be the difference with them (Packers) converting...

Tyler Eifert out multiple weeks due to back injury

Tyler Eifert out multiple weeks due to back injury

It looks like Tyler Eifert will miss Week 4 against the Browns and probably Week 5 against the Bills. The Cincinnati Bengals will be without Tyler Eifert for several more games. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Eifert’s back injury is serious enough to keep him out for multiple weeks, though it’s not serious enough for surgery just yet. Bengals TE Tyler Eifert expected to miss multiple weeks while recovering from back injury, per source. No back surgery needed at this time.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 25, 2017 That means Eifert will miss Week 4 against the...

Bengals given roster exemption for Vontaze Burfict

Bengals given roster exemption for Vontaze Burfict

Who will the Bengals move to make room for Vontaze Burfict’s return? The Cincinnati Bengals just got a major upgrade to their defense. It came in Vontaze Burfict returning from his three-game suspension on Monday, the team announced. The Bengals also announced that they were given a three-day exemption for Burfict’s roster spot, so they don’t have to make room for him until Thursday at 4 p.m. EST. So before Sunday’s Week 4 matchup with the Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati has to find a way to free up a roster spot for Burfict to join the 53-man roster. That could mean someone gets...

Andy Dalton and A.J. Green break down the Bengals’ improved offense

Andy Dalton and A.J. Green break down the Bengals’ improved offense

On the first drive of the day against Green Bay, Andy Dalton connects with A.J. Green to give the Bengals fans what they want. The Cincinnati Bengals entered Lambeau Field on Sunday with new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, who took over on Friday of the previous week, giving him nine days to prepare for Green Bay. With the pressure on the Bengals to get their talented offense to perform, Lazor would have his work cut out for him. Pressure can burst pipes, or craft diamonds, and when the Bengals capped off their opening drive with a 10-yard Andy Dalton to A.J. Green touchdown pass, fans...

AFC North standings: Who is the team to beat?

AFC North standings: Who is the team to beat?

By default, Pittsburgh and Baltimore are distancing themselves from the pack. All three of the Cincinnati Bengals’ AFC North opponents lost on Sunday, which would have left the door open for the Bengals to pull within one game of the leaders. But Cincinnati was not up to the task, falling to the Packers in overtime. Pittsburgh fell 23-17 in overtime to the Chicago Bears, Baltimore got shelled by Jacksonville by a score of 44-7, Cleveland saw its comeback fall short by a 31-28 margin, and Cincinnati, despite scoring its first two offensive touchdowns of the 2017 season, dropped a...

NFL Week 3: Carl Lawson shines in Bengals’ loss to Packers

NFL Week 3: Carl Lawson shines in Bengals’ loss to Packers

The loss to Green Bay was a tough pill to swallow for Bengals fans, but there were a lot of positives to take away from the game. Most notably, the Bengals might have a special player in Carl Lawson. Carl Lawson was a highly-touted pass rusher coming into the 2017 NFL Draft. However, he somehow fell all the way into the fourth round, and the Cincinnati Bengals couldn’t have been happier about it. Marvin Lewis praised Lawson throughout training camp, chomping at the bit to unleash the young pass rusher. Well, Lawson was unleashed against the Packers thanks to the Bengals gaining a lead...

Adam Jones struggling mightily for Bengals; William Jackson shines vs Packers

Adam Jones struggling mightily for Bengals; William Jackson shines vs Packers

Father time is catching up with the Bengals’ top cornerback. There are too many reasons to count as to why the Cincinnati Bengals are 0-3. Most of the blame can be shifted toward the offense, which looked vastly improved against the Green Bay Packers in Week 3, but at the same time, they scored just 17 points in a three-point loss. If not for William Jackson’s pick-six, this game could have turned into a comfortable win for the Packers. However, the defense was not without fault. For much of the game, Dre Kirkpatrick was the man giving up big play after big play, but this was really...

Bengals open as favorites to beat Browns in NFL Week 4

The Bengals and Browns are both 0-3 but someone needs to win on Sunday. Right? Oddsmakers aren’t giving up on the Cincinnati Bengals just yet. Though, that may be because this week, the Bengals play the also winless Cleveland Browns. The Bengals will hit the road for the second time this season and attempt to get their first win after starting off 0-3. The Browns are in the same 0-3 boat, but the Bengals are favored by four points in this game, with an over/under of 40, per BookMaker.Eu. The Bengals have swept the Browns in each of the last two years and have won six of the last eight...

The Bengals lost in inexplicable fashion against the Packers to fall to 0-3. We went on Facebook live to talk about what transpired The Cincinnati Bengals lost to one of the NFL’s elite teams, as they fell to Green Bay, 27-24 in overtime. There are more questions than answers in The Queen City, as the Bengals are looking at an 0-3 start. In the rare occasion that the offense looks good, the defense and special teams seems to take a terribly-timed siesta. Such was the case at Lambeau Field, where Cincinnati’s offense finally decided to make some plays, though a missed field goal and a...

Bengals WR A.J. Green makes history in loss to Packers

Green joins an elite group of receivers with his latest accomplishment. Sunday in Green Bay got off to a good start for the Cincinnati Bengals, but at the end of the game, it was the Packers who left the field victorious after a 27-24 overtime win. But let’s forget about the loss for a second. Sunday was a special day for Bengals star wide receiver who had 10 catches for 111 yards and 1 touchdown on Sunday. But that’s not what we’re here to talk about. On Sunday, Green recorded his 500th reception and his 50th touchdown catch in his 89th career game. In doing so, he joins Pro Football...

The Bengals know they let the Packers off the hook Sunday. Why the ruling for the 12 man penalty was upheld even with the player in the air. At least the rest of the AFC North lost as well. Rodgers clicks to overtime to bake BengalsMichael Johnson, the Bengals right end who had one of six sacks of Aaron Rodgers in Sunday’s sauna, knew they had let the Lambeau Lurker off the hook. They let him lurk around and lurk around and when no one had taken the game by the fourth quarter, he grabbed it by the neck and beat the Bengals in overtime, 27-24. The Bengals couldn’t get Rodgers on the...
