Bengals vs. Buccaneers Preview: Online Stream, Odds, TV Info, Radio and more

The Buccaneers host the Bengals with both teams in the hunt for a post in the NFL playoffs. The Cincinnati Bengals hit the road for a third straight week when they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday. Cincinnati enters this one at 7-3-1 and holding a slim lead over three 7-4 teams in the AFC North. Though their records suggest a vast difference in talent, Cincinnati cannot afford to underestimate a 2-9 Tampa team that's still just two games out of first place in the NFC South. with the 4-7 Atlanta Falcons leading the division, the Bucs are still very much in contention to win the...

Bengals won't be scoreboard watching this weekend

“Heck, I don't know what our record is. You really don't have time to think about that kind of stuff,” says Bengals left tackle Andrew Whitworth. At this stage of the season, the AFC North is as tight as any in NFL history. The Cincinnati Bengals are holding first place by .046 percentage points with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens all sporting second-place 7-4 marks. Or dare I say... sharing last place? Twirling muchache laugh aside, a win by everyone will put Cincinnati in last place if the Bengals lose to the Buccaneers this Sunday in Tampa Bay. Yet,...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers list several players as questionable

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have seven players listed as questionable, including starting linebacker Lavonte David, center Evan Dietrich-Smith and defensive tackle Clinton McDonald. After missing two practices this week, Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David was a limited participant during Friday's session, according to the team's practice and injury report. A hamstring injury forced David to miss his first career game last week and has kept him sidelined during practice since being limited during last week's opening session (Wed). There's a chance he could play this Sunday against...

Ray Rice wins appeal; Former Ravens RB can now sign with any NFL team

Former Ravens running back Ray Rice is now free to sign with any NFL team. The appeal of former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice has been won, and he'll now be able to return to the NFL after serving a previous-indefinite suspension for striking his then-fiance unconscious this offseason. Former Federal Judge Barbara Jones heard Rice's appeal and was the one who ultimately decided  to end his indefinite suspension for beating the woman who would later become his wife. Rice's argument the NFL punished him twice for the same incident, which violates the collective bargaining...

Lavonte David returns to Buccaneers practice Friday

The Buccaneers could get a huge boost on defense against the Bengals if Lavonte David is able to play. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be getting one of their best players back this week if linebacker Lavonte David is able to play this week. The All-Pro linebacker is dealing with a hamstring injury that's caused him to miss the previous four practices in addition to the Week 12 loss at Chicago. David was able to practice Friday after not going Wednesday or Thursday (team was off), so to have missed the past two weeks of practice will make it tough for him to play Sunday. David shares the...

Bengals to reunite with Michael Johnson and Anthony Collins Sunday

"They were great guys for us and they were guys who grew up here and helped us and did a lot of great things here,'' Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said Wednesday. If there's a calendar somewhere in Cincinnati's lockerroom, promoting a game against former teammates, then Sunday is one. Perhaps the most prominent. During the offseason, defensive end Michael Johnson and offensive tackle Anthony Collins, departed Cincinnati for Tampa Bay. "They were great guys for us and they were guys who grew up here and helped us and did a lot of great things here,'' Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said Wednesday....

Who is your crafty veteran? #GMCPlaybook

We take a look at crafty veterans on the team, using special moves or anything that it takes to win. The Bengals have several, including one tight end that tends to get people ejected.

Vontaze Burfict, Margus Hunt out Friday; Unlikely for Bengals vs. Buccaneers

The Bengals are expected to be without Vontaze Burfict and Margus Hunt vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but are otherwise fairly healthy going into that Week 13 matchup. The Cincinnati Bengals held their final pre-Buccaneers practice Friday, and they were once again without Vontaze Burfict and Margus Hunt, meaning those two are effectively 'out' when the team travels to Tampa Bay. Burfict, still recovering from a knee scope in Week 9, was never really expected to practice or play this week as the team is trying to to get to Week 14 before allowing him to even practice. Burfict has battled a...

Bengals Bites (11/28) - Black Friday

The Bengals prepare for Tampa Bay this Sunday and look to cap a strong road trip with another win. Going on road may have been best thing for BengalsWinning on the road in the NFL can be difficult, and Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said on Monday he would prefer his team play all 16 of its games at home, but perhaps one of the main things that has turned the team's season back in the right direction following the 24-3 home loss to Cleveland on Nov. 6 was going on the road for a lengthy period of time. Matchup of the Game: age before...?There are 15 years between Newman and Evans, the...

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Scouting Report

The Bengals travel to Tampa Bay looking for their first three-game road winning streak in franchise history. We take a look at how these two teams stack up. The Bengals are far better and far more talented than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but after two big road wins and four huge games over the next four weeks, this game is the definition of "trap game." Throw in the fact that the Bengals haven't won in Tampa since 1983 and have never won three consecutive road games in franchise history, and this game is far from a "gimme." Here is what to look for this Sunday when the Bengals attempt to...

We take a look at some of the burning questions of the week, from questions sent via Twitter. Submit your questions for this weekly feature to @CJAnthonyCUI and/or @CincyJungle. The Cincinnati Bengals are riding high on a two-game road winning streak and the sour taste that lingered just a couple of weeks ago has dissipated.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn't practice on Thursday

Players and coaches decided to practice on Tuesday so that they could have Thanksgiving off on Thursday. This might sound like a good thing for Cincinnati, but Tampa is loaded with injuries that mostly requires rest. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers accordingly copied and pasted their injury report from Wednesday, into Thursday's bracket and called it a day. Per Greg Auman with the Tampa Bay Times, the Buccaneers didn't practice on Thursday. Bucs' official injury report for Thursday is unchanged from Wednesday, mainly because team has today off and isn't practicing ... — Greg Auman (@gregauman)...

Clint Boling expected to backup Marshall Newhouse

Left guard Clint Boling is expected to backup Marshall Newhouse at right tackle. If that happens, backup Mike Pollak will step in at left guard. The Bengals also signed Jamon Meredith this week and worked out former Saints tackle Charles Brown. If right tackle Marshall Newhouse goes down on Sunday for any reason (something significant or just a poke in the eye), it won't be the recently signed Jamon Meredith or the versatile Tanner Hawkinson that replaces him. Speaking of Hawkinson, are we still entertaining the idea that he'll be on this team much longer? They're not even comfortable with...

Former Bengals Anthony Collins and Michael Johnson reflect on Chris Henry

Former Bengals Anthony Collins and Michael Johnson reflect on Chris Henry, with Collins striking up a strong bond. "When I say I want to give thanks for being here on this earth, what I'm basically saying is 'Thank you, Lord, for letting me meet somebody like Chris," Collins said via the Tampa Bay Times. Former Cincinnati Bengals backup tackle Anthony Collins is still thinking about wide receiver Chris Henry, who died on Dec. 17, 2009, several hours after an automobile accident in which Henry sustained massive trauma to the head. According to police reports, Henry fell out of the bed of a...

Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict unlikely against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

With four straight games missed already, Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has missed two practices this week, strengthening a belief that he won't play him this weekend against Tampa Bay. Linebacker Vontaze Burfict sat out during Thursday's practice, solidifying the belief that Cincinnati will hold their Pro Bowler out until December's stretch run against Pittsburgh (week 14, week 17), Cleveland (week 15), and Denver on Monday Night Football (week 16). Each game carries massive significance, with the Steelers and Browns within a game of the division lead and Denver making a...
