Biggest AFC North villains vs Bengals in Marvin Lewis era: Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs

Ravens defender Terrell Suggs has created a Hall of Fame career for himself with the Baltimore Ravens and he's wreaked his share of havoc against the Bengals. He's also been very vocal about his success in his previous 13 NFL seasons. The Baltimore Ravens and defensive dominance have been synonymous for nearly two full decades. Marvin Lewis' time with the Cincinnati Bengals has of course been linked back to his ties with both the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Ravens. His history with the latter runs much deeper, given his designing of a Super Bowl champion defense and grooming Ray Lewis...

Is Adam Jones the Bengals' most underrated player?

Recently, a prominent national sportswriter made the bold proclamation that star-crossed defensive back Adam Jones is the Bengals' most underrated player. Is there truth to the sentiment on the multi-dimensional player? Few players have had as tumultuous of an NFL career as Bengals defensive back, Adam Jones. After an explosive start to his career with the Tennessee Titans, things spiraled out of control after a violent weekend in Las Vegas back in 2007. It's been a long road back to redemption, but Jones has hit his stride--on and off-the-field--since joining the Bengals back in 2010. This...

Bengals Bytes (7/23): Pushing limits

Andrew Billings has been putting in so much work that the coaching staff has placed a limit on him. Le'Veon Bell is facing a four game suspension. Ezekiel Elliot has been accused of Domestic violence, but he still claims innocence. Bengals can capitalize off suspensions of Tom Brady and Le'Veon BellWhen the NFL schedule was released in April, it appeared as though the schedule-makers did the Cincinnati Bengals few favors, particularly at the beginning of the season. They gave the Bengals back-to-back road games to begin the year. Then they added a home opener against the defending Super...

P.J. Dawson should be used as a strongside linebacker

A change in the linebacker positioning for Dawson could lead to a spark and allow the Bengals to better utilize his talents. The Bengals selected P.J. Dawson with the 99th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, despite the fact that some projections had him being off the board as high as the late first round. A poor combine performance as well as questions about his character and work ethic caused him to drop to the Bengals in the third round. At that point, they pounced on a fantastic opportunity to pick up a linebacker who was known for his ability to bring down running backs quickly while also...

Marvin Lewis talks Bengals moving past playoff loss

Marvin Lewis has moved past that dreaded game and it looking forward to the upcoming season. The 2016 NFL season can't get here soon enough, especially for Bengals fans hoping to get the bad taste of last season out of their mouth. What was shaping up to be a memorable season ended in disaster as Cincinnati gave away a playoff game to their biggest rivals in Pittsburgh. It was easily one of the most gut-wrenching losses the franchise has ever suffered, and it's one some think could affect the moral of this team going into next season. Marvin Lewis thinks it's merely another learning...

Le'Veon Bell facing 4-game suspension; would miss Week 2 vs Bengals

Le'Veon Bell was suspended for the first two games of the 2015 season for a violation of the policy on substances of abuse, and he's now facing a four-game suspension in 2016. As we've seen far too often, drugs can derail even the careers of the best professional athletes. While Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell hasn't seen his NFL career go off the tracks yet, he's getting dangerously close after his latest infraction. According to ESPN's Dan Graziano, Bell is facing a four-game suspension for skipping a drug test this offseason. The suspension is the result of a MISSED drug test, not...

Bengals Bytes (7/22): Past the starters

Who will be providing the depth at wide receiver past the top three we all already know? Ray Rice makes an interesting proposition. And, J.J. Watt will start the year on the PUP list. 5 things to know about the Cincinnati Bengals offensive line Leading up to the start of training camp for the Cincinnati Bengals on July 29, we’re breaking down each position group.

Bengals 2016 Comeback Player of the Year Candidate No. 8: Jeremy Hill

For whatever reason, we saw a steep decline in production by Jeremy Hill in 2015. Whether it was due to injury or just a bad year for Hill, he's poised for a major comeback season in 2016. That why he's up next in our countdown of the 2016 Bengals Comebacker Player of the Year candidates. Coming back from an injury or a bad season are two reasons a player may need a comeback. Jeremy Hill has to come back from the fact he fumbled away the Bengals' first real chance at a playoff win in two decades. Sure, the rest of the team helped lose that dreaded game vs Pittsburgh, but few had a chance...

90-in-90 Bengals Roster Breakdown: Tyler Kroft to make good on new Baby Eif nickname

Baby Eif will start in place of Tyler Eifert until he comes back from offseason surgery. Kroft will have a great chance to prove he can be more featured in Cincinnati's offense. A good athlete with great size and good speed, while Eifert is out, the tight end starting role is his to lose Starter tight end Tyler Eifert is likely to miss some time when the regular season kicks off so it will be Tyler Kroft, affectionately nicknamed 'Baby Eif', who will look to man the tight end position early on. That's not an easy task considering the missing production, but it's a job he's done before...

Cincinnati Bengals quizzes

Test your Bengals knowledge with our fun Cincinnati Bengals quizzes. With the losses of Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu via free agency, the Bengals backup wide receiver spots are no longer filled by names well recognized by Bengals' fans, but with relative unknowns.

So this quiz tests your knowledge regarding these relative unknowns. Fortunately, we don't ask if you know their favorite foods, or SB Nation...

Is Rey Maualuga the Bengals' most overrated player?

Could Rey Maualuga be the Bengals' most overrated player? One NFL analyst thinks so. In building a championship-caliber core, the Cincinnati Bengals' front office has done a great job at avoiding signing and re-signing players that are more talk than game. The Bengals have a big collection of players who have proven to be at the top of their position. However, every team is going to have it's overrated players. When you think of overrated players on the Bengals, there really aren't many on a deep team that has made the playoffs in each of the last five seasons. Though, Domata Peko comes to...

5 NFL free agents Bengals should consider for vacant roster spot

We look at five free agents who should be in consideration for the Bengals' final roster spot entering training camp now that Corey Tindal has been released. With news that the Bengals have waived cornerback Corey Tindal, there is now a vacant spot on the offseason 90-man roster. But while the move leaves open a spot for someone else to be signed, it doesn't appear Cincinnati is close to filling that void, according to Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson. It's unlikely the team will go into training camp without a full 90-man roster, that is unless they look to add someone after camp opens. With...

Confusing study gives Bengals 11th-best odds of making playoffs

Disclaimer: We're not sure if this ranking is a parody or if it's serious. We kind of hope it's the former since the latter doesn't speak well to the author or his formula for projected postseason odds. If you're a football junkie like myself, you probably caught CBS' ranking of the five most disrespected program in college football. It's pretty much a guarantee the Bengals would be at or near the top if such a ranking was made for the NFL. Year in and year out, the national media seems to be digging for every little reason why the Bengals won't be good, won't have a winning record and...

Film Room: Focussing in on Tyler Boyd's strengths

The Bengals can take advantage of Tyler Boyd's strengths and hide his weaknesses in an important rookie season. When the Bengals selected Pittsburgh wide receiver Tyler Boyd with their second round pick of the 2016 NFL Draft I wasn't thrilled, but that is because I made a very common mistake; I focused on what he can't do instead of what he can bring to the table, which is what we are going to assess here. With the losses of both Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu, Cincinnati needed help in the flanks, and after all the top first round-worthy players were gone in quick order just before the...

Bengals waive CB Corey Tindal

The Bengals have waived undrafted rookie cornerback Corey Tindal. They now only have 89 men on the roster with training camp less than 10 days away. The Bengals have waived Corey Tindal, the team announced today. Tindal earned a workout with the Bengals after the NFL Draft and then signed with the team in May. Though it's unclear if this has anything to do with his release, Tindal was a victim in an armed robbery last week. During the robbery, Tindal was playing poker in a motel in West Virginia around 1:00 a.m. During the robbery, Tindal was hit twice on the top of his head with the...

90-in-90 Bengals Roster Breakdown: Derron Smith poised for bigger role

With Reggie Nelson off to Oakland, Derron Smith is poised for a big a jump in production in 2016. We break it down and forecast his outlook entering Year 2. As is normally the case with the Bengals, playing time is hard to come by for rookies. Between the team preferring to slowly acclimate players to pro football and having depth at just about every position, guys like Derron Smith rarely see the field as rookies. With Reggie Nelson, George Iloka and Shawn Williams taking up nearly all of the snaps, there wasn't much room for anyone else to make an impact in the back end of Cincy's...

Steelers RB DeAngelo Williams: Bengals 'want to be us'

Apparently Peko got under his skin. The Bengals-Steelers rivalry has been an intense one for years, but it has really started to heat up lately as the Bengals have joined the Steelers as one of the more consistently competitive teams in the AFC. For years, the rivalry was mostly based on the fact that the Bengals absolutely hated the Steelers due to being in the same division, the close proximity of the cities and injuries incurred during games between the teams. But, now, you can add legitimate competition every year into the equation. It's a turn of fortunes and events that Steelers...
