Player Style Files: Carlos Dunlap

Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap talks about his first career sack on Peyton Manning and shows off his Audi A8.

Baltimore Ravens without starting tight end Owen Daniels

The Cincinnati Bengals defense has been awful during the team's current winless streak. One issue that will benefit them is the absence of Baltimore's starting tight end. Maybe things won't be so bad for Cincinnati's maligned defense. Vontaze Burfict and Emmanuel Lamur are expected to play... well, at least start, because you know that Burfict is going to concuss himself and leave the game... and the team is believably disgusted after an epic 27-0 loss (which reminded everyone of the state of affairs prior to Marvin Lewis' arrival) that MUST have appealed to their personal pride. It's like...
Bengals not expecting A.J. Green this weekend against the Ravens

Bengals not expecting A.J. Green this weekend against the Ravens

"Each day of this week he’s looked better and better. Today looked like football for him, so that’s good," said Lewis on Friday. "He’s looked good and doing well. We'll see." Let's understand something here: Pretending to act as if A.J. Green can, or cannot, play while dealing with a bum toe, isn't that much of a misdirection. The fourth-year receiver has missed the last two games (Carolina and Indianapolis), and all but six snaps against the Atlanta Falcons in week two. For the sake of argument, that's three full games played and 314 yards receiving in those games -- 131 yards...

Behind Enemy Lines: Bengals vs Ravens

Behind Enemy Lines: Bengals vs Ravens

Matthew Stevens of Baltimore Beatdown sits down with us at Cincy Jungle to talk about the upcoming big AFC North showdown between the Bengals and Ravens this Sunday. Q: Prior to week one, you and I discussed Joe Flacco's impressive run through the 2012 playoffs, followed by his disappointing 2013 campaign. Flacco is off to a great start in 2014 and on pace for his best season as a pro in terms of touchdowns, yards, completion percentage and quarterback rating. Is the difference attributable to Steve Smith alone? Or has something else changed in 2014? A: Most people look at his 2013...

Bengals vs Ravens television coverage

We take a look at the complete television coverage for the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens. Also, for those of us in Cincinnati, we'll get five live NFL games, starting with a 9:30 a.m. kickoff between the Lions and Falcons in London. The Cincinnati Bengals will host the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday, irrationally closing out a season-series that usually concluded the regular season. Not this year. This year Cincinnati will have played Baltimore twice, even before the Bengals midseason point. If you're within the surrounding states in Ohio or close in Baltimore, you'll get Sunday's...

Giovani Bernard hates NFL fantasy football

Fantasy football has taken the NFL by storm, but Giovani Bernard wants nothing to do with it. Don't talk to Giovani Bernard about your fantasy football team. The second-year Bengals running back doesn't want anything to do with the popular game that's taken the NFL by storm, and caused some fans to look at players more like video game characters than actual people. In an interview with Michael Schottey of the Bleacher Report, Gio expressed why he doesn't like fantasy football: Saying that he "hates" fantasy football, Bernard elaborated, "It's more so that people take it to a point where...

Ravens vs. Bengals: Expert picks, analysis and predictions

What are the experts saying about Round 2 of this AFC North rivalry between the Bengals and Ravens? The Bengals are in need of a win in the worst way when the surging Ravens come to town. After a red-hot 3-0 start, Cincinnati has gone a month without tasting victory while falling to 3-2-1. On the other side, the Ravens have surged into first place in the AFC North after winning five of their past six games. They've done so thanks to their red-hot offense that's scored 29-plus points in three of their past four games. The two teams met in Week 1, a game in which Cincinnati escaped with a...

Film Room: Bengals Defensive Backups Aren't Stepping Up

Film Room: Bengals Defensive Backups Aren't Stepping Up

Another week, another 500+ yards allowed by the Bengals defense. They now rank 31st in average yards allowed per game (416.7). Is this a personnel problem? Or a scheme problem? We'll dig deeper for answers in this week's film room. Going into this game, we knew it wasn't going to be easy to stop the number one offense in the league. With Vontaze Burfict knocking himself out of the game by lowering his head into Andrew Luck's chest, and the Bengals offense only putting up one drive longer than two minutes, it was made even harder. The Bengals defense actually didn't play as poorly as one...

A.J. Green doubtful vs. Ravens; Leon Hall and Giovani Bernard probable

A.J. Green doubtful vs. Ravens; Leon Hall and Giovani Bernard probable

The bengals will get several key players back this week, but don't expect A.J. Green to play vs. the Ravens. All thing considered, the Bengals had a good week on the injury front in preparation of their game vs. the Baltimore Ravens. Several starters who either missed last week, or were knocked out of the Week 7 loss to the Colts are expected to play Sunday. Giovani Bernard is listed as "probable" on the final injury report after getting in a full season Friday. A rib injury held him to two limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday. He looks ready for a full workload vs. Baltimore. Leon...

Friday Open Thread: Bengals Caption/Photoshop Contest #6

Caption and/or Photoshop this picture...also, the results from last week's contest are in. This is the fan who ran out onto the field near the end of the game. The CBS broadcast didn't show it, but the young woman came up to Andy Dalton and shook hands with him, and apparently she is asking or telling him something. Eventually, she was restrained by stadium security personnel. We finally have a winner for the 4th contest from two weeks ago, submitted by JamesShively: Last week's contest was on this photo: Here are the winners for the caption-only contest- First place:...

Chargers CB Jason Verrett may miss significant time with shoulder injury

The Chargers may lose one of their best defenders for a significant amount of time due to injury. The San Diego Chargers had little chance of upsetting the Denver Broncos Thursday night once Jason Verrett left the game. Already without Brandon Flowers, that left San Diego having to defend Denver high-flying offense, and they allowed the Broncos to go on a 28-7 run between the final minutes of the second quarter and into the fourth quarter. Verrett exited the game in the second quarter with an injury to his already-injured shoulder, and he may have damaged it further to the point he'll miss...

A.J. Green won't practice Friday; Don't expect him vs. Ravens

Don't expect to see A.J. Green playing this week vs. the Ravens, and if he does, it will be as nothing more than a decoy for the Bengals. It doesn't look like the Bengals will have their best offensive weapon when they face the Ravens in Week 8. wide receiver A.J. Green told Butch Hobson that he isn't going to practice on Friday, meaning he would have missed three straight weeks of practice since playing in his last game. However, Green did say that him not practicing Friday doesn't rule him out vs. Baltimore. AJ says he's not practicing Friday but won't rule out playing Sunday: up in...

Tecmo Bowl Futures - Ravens Vs. Bengals

Tecmo Bowl Futures - Ravens Vs. Bengals

You can go anywhere on the web and find what the experts think the outcome of any game will be. I have my own expert. She was born in 1991 and has had my heart ever since. Her name, Tecmo Super Bowl. In chapter two of the division battle between the Ravens and the Bengals, we see a Bengals team coming off some major struggles and a Ravens team that is firing on all cylinders. Simple logic would lean towards favoring the hot hand but I like to let Tecmo give me the insight to what to expect on the field. The Bengals elect to receive the ball and pick up right where they left off the last...

Bengals Bites (10/24) - An Acquired Taste

The Bengals prep for the Baltimore Ravens with some smooth tunes. What do people outside of Cincinnati think of our awesome delicacies? Beyonce, Sam Smith tunes ease CIncinnati Bengals on practice fields - ESPNThe Cincinnati Bengals are desperate to change the mostly bad vibes that exist around them this week. It seems they have been thinking a few good vibrations would help. For the first time since Marvin Lewis became head coach 12 years ago, the Bengals played music at the start of practice Thursday afternoon, in an apparent act of trying to keep the players loose in the middle of...

Andrew Hawkins doesn't like son being A.J. Green and Mohamed Sanu fan (video)

Browns receiver Andrew Hawkins' two-year-old son Austin told his father that Bengals receivers Mohamed Sanu and A.J. Green were his favorite NFL players, and Andrew was less than pleased. With the Bengals so depleted at receiver right now, they sure could use the services of Andrew Hawkins. After becoming a restricted free agent last offseason, Hawkins signed an offer sheet that Cincinnati opted not to match. It looked as though Hawkins wanted to go to Cleveland more than stay in Cincinnati, and this story won't dispel that notion. Hawkins' two-year-old son Austin told his father that...

Film Room: Injuries reveal lack of plan-B for Bengals

Film Room: Injuries reveal lack of plan-B for Bengals

The Bengals did nothing against the Colts last Sunday. Nothing. And this comes after a tie at home against Carolina and the beating they took in Foxborough. Now, it's time for some to be held responsible. The first thing that comes to every fan's head is: the Bengals are injured. Okay, we've already discussed this. Every team in the NFL loses some players at some point, but the difference between a bad roster and a good roster is the team overcoming those injuries and continuing on, just like how the Cardinals won a couple of games without their beloved quarterback, Carson Palmer. We had...
