Inside the NFL keeps picking against the Bengals

The Inside the NFL crew likes the Denver Broncos this Monday Night against the Cincinnati Bengals. Ed Reed went a bit over-dramatic, but that happens.

Bengals look to break losing streak against the Broncos

The Bengals can win against the Broncos this Monday, but only if they go about it correctly. When the Cincinnati Bengals play host to the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football, they will do so without ever having previously won against Peyton Manning, period. Not exactly the confidence boost you were looking for? My bad. The Broncos have been one of the two best teams in the AFC for the last two years alongside New England. The teams boast an arsenal of weapons other than Mannning as well, including both the Thomases, C.J. Anderson (one of our featured Fantasy waiver wire adds prior to...

Bengals LB Emmanuel Lamur and WR James Wright could miss Monday

The Cincinnati Bengals aren't expected to have starting linebacker Emmanuel Lamur this weekend if he's unable to practice on Saturday. Wide receiver James Wright hasn't practiced either with a knee. Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver James Wright is an odd story. Three weeks ago against the Tampa bay Buccaneers, Wright stepped up in a huge way with a 30-yard reception to sustain a fourth quarter possession that used more clock during a fragile one-point lead, eventually allowing Kevin Huber to flip the field. With 2:37 remaining in the fourth quarter, with the Bengals leading 14-13, Andy...

Game Review: Johnny Manziel's Debut Doesn't Go as Planned in 30-0 Loss to Bengals

The Browns' 30-0 loss to the Bengals in the home finale is a game that I'd soon like to forget. I think we can all agree that the run defense was a disaster against Cincinnati, and I honestly had no motivation to break those plays down. Therefore, every play (except for one) in this week's game review will focus on the offense, particularly the play calls and decision-making by QB Johnny Manziel in his first start. We did see some flashes of how Manziel can disrupt a defense, but the next step is to execute when those opportunities are there. Cincinnati Bengals vs. Cleveland Browns ...

Brandon Marshall still not at Broncos practice

The broncos could be without leading-tackler Brandon Marshall vs. the Bengals. The Denver Broncos could be without their leading tackler when they head to Cincinnati on Monday Night Football. Linebacker Brandon Marshall was not on the field Friday, marking the second consecutive day he's missed practice while dealing with a sprained foot. This comes on the heels of Denver placing Danny Trevathan, Denver’s leading tackler from a year ago, on insured this past week. He's only started in one game this year after a broken kneecap cost him much of the first half of the year, and Marshall has...

Peyton Manning practices Friday; Denver Post says he should sit vs. Bengals

Peyton Manning hasn't looked like the All-Pro quarterback we're used to, but sitting him vs. the Bengals seems crazy, right? The Denver Broncos were relieved to have Peyton Manning back on the field Friday, and it looks like there's no doubt now that he's playing vs. the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football. However, The Denver Post's Mark Kiszla thinks Denver should sit Manning, who is dealing with an illness in addition to a thigh injury that occurred as a result of it. Manning hasn't looked like the All-Pro quarterback we're used to over the past month, but to sit him seems a...

A.J. Green back at Bengals practice; Emmanuel Lamur still out

Offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth also was given a veteran's day of rest. The Bengals were happy to see All-Pro receiver A.J. Green back on the field Friday. After an illness held him out Thursday, Green was back on the field Friday for the second of three practices before Monday night's showdown with Denver. As for rookie receiver James Wright, he was held out again with a lingering knee injury that sidelined him the past two games. It looks like it will be three unless he's able to practice on Saturday. As for linebacker Emmanuel Lamur, he too was on the side after not practicing...

Eric Winston could make first start with the Bengals

"He's smart and he comes from a good background, good teams. He's been coached really well. I'm not surprised at it. I'm not surprised at anything he does. He is really a bright football player and he knows how to play the game." - Hue Jackson on Eric Winston. Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Eric Winston may start on Monday, which would mark his first start with the Cincinnati Bengals since signing with the team on Dec. 2. With Andre Smith going on season-ending injured reserve with a tricep tear and backup Marshall Newhouse struggling, Cincinnati sought help with the veteran right...

The narrative is that the Bengals are terrible in primetime

The Cincinnati Bengals players and coaches were grilled prior to Thursday's practice and the theme was, "why do you struggle in primetime games?" There were suggestions. The Cincinnati Bengals suck during primetime games. And they don't have any shortages of excuses for those primetime time woes. This is the narrative. You've heard about them, cried about it and suffered (not nearly as much) but in your own right. Since the introduction of the Andy Dalton and A.J. Green era, the Bengals are 2-9 in games played during the lights and in the postseason. Yes - you should combine primetime games...

NFL Playoffs: Steelers, Bengals and Ravens' Postseason Odds

The AFC North has the AFC's only three teams that can clinch a spot in the NFL playoffs this week. The Cincinnati Bengals are one of many NFL teams on the cusp of clinching a playoff berth that could also miss out on the postseason altogether if they are unable to win one of their final two games. Sitting at 9-4-1, it is possible the Bengals lose both of their remaining two games and still make it to the postseason, but that requires a lot of help. Then again, it's not crazy to think both the Chiefs, Bills and Chargers will all lose at least one more game, and that's all Cincinnati needs...

Peyton Manning injury sees him limited on Broncos-Bengals practice report

With the Denver Broncos and Cincinnati Bengals playing on Monday Night Football, the first injury report of the week comes on Thursday instead of Wednesday. With 14 players on the injury report, including their superstar quarterback, one thing is clear: the Denver Broncos could use a break. How about a first-round playoff bye? Now that a playoff berth is locked up, the Broncos can clinch a first-round bye in the playoffs with a win against the Cincinnati Bengals. Then they could rest some of those 14 players who appeared on their injury report. Such as Peyton Manning. "I think it's...

Bengals Running Back Jeremy Hill Wins FedEx Ground Player Of The Week Honors

The rookie sensation won his second award this week from his performance against the Cleveland Browns. Sometimes one award just isn't enough for a guy. After winning the AFC Offensive Player of the Week award on Wednesday, news broke that he won another high-profile honor just a day later. Hill was voted as the FedEx Ground Player of the Week Award, per multiple sources. Because he is the winner, FedEx will be donating $2,000 to the Cincinnati Red Cross. The other nominees for the award included Eddie Lacy of the Green Bay Packers and Marshawn Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks. Hill out-dueled...

Marvin Lewis Keeps Pressing His Thumb Down On Jeremy Hill

In addressing the media on Wednesday, Marvin Lewis made more comments directed at the team's rookie running back. The theme of his comments should sound familiar. One acronym commonly used for the NFL, especially amongst players, is the "No Fun League". Usually the connotation pertains to the Commissioner's office and/or the referee crews that are on the field every week. Gone are the elaborate touchdown celebrations with multiple people and even props. Taunting and other gestures are also disallowed in today's NFL, clamping down on the behavior of even the most exuberant of the league's...

Peyton Manning leaves Broncos practice to treat thigh injury

It doesn't look like the injury is bad enough that Peyton Manning could miss the Bengals game, but it looks like it could at least limit him to some degree. The Denver Broncos have been hit with several injuries to key starters this year, but none would be bigger than anything that would cause Peyton Manning to miss time. Manning, who went 14 of 20 for 233 yards and a touchdown on Sunday vs. the chargers, suffered a thigh injury that forced him out of the game for the end of the second quarter. According to The Denver Post's Mike Klis, Manning left Thursday's practice to...

A.J. Green misses practice; Margus Hunt, Jermaine Gresham return

The Bengals had several players return from injury Thursday in their first of three practices before facing the Broncos. The Bengals finally have defensive end Margus Hunt back on a practice field. After not practicing for the past month after suffering an ankle injury in Week 11, Hunt appears to have recovered from his ankle injury enough that he could suit up against Denver. He was able to do conditioning on the side during practice last week leading up to the Browns game, so Hunt appears ready to return. The Bengals are still waiting for the second-year DE to make the impact...

Marvin Lewis on Bengals' primetime struggles: 'Other team's QB played better'

A bit of shot at Andy Dalton, no? The Bengals struggle in primetime. We've established by now, and until the Bengals defeated quality opponents on a consistent basis when the lights are shining brightest, the coaches and players will continue to face questions of their shortcomings in this setting. That was the case Thursday as the team met with the media prior to their first pre-Broncos practice, which happens to be on Monday Night Football in a game not many think Cincinnati can win. A big reason why is the matchup of quarterbacks, and Marvin Lewis was pretty blunt in why the Bengals...
