5 things Bengals must improve on coming out of bye week

5 things Bengals must improve on coming out of bye week

If the Bengals are going to keep their resurgence going, here is what they must improve on going into their clash with the Steelers. Cincinnati went to the bye week after a win over the Buffalo Bills that gave the Bills their second loss, and the Bengals their second win. But despite some help in the AFC North, the Bengals still sit in third place and need to climb the ladder if they want to make a playoff run. The schedule for the Bengals has some weak points, as well as some tough battles, and the Bengals will have to face a tough opponent next week when they head to Pittsburgh. There...

NFL Week 7 Power Rankings Roundup: Bengals get chance at redemption

The Bengals move with the teams shifting around them this week because of their bye.

This has sky rocketed the Steelers in most power ranking, which means this game could potentially move the Bengals into the top 10 in most of these rankings. The Bengals are coming out healthier after their bye week. John...

Bengals Unsung Hero of the first 5 games

Which player’s performance has gone unnoticed this season so far? It was a long five weeks for the Cincinnati Bengals, and maybe a bye is what they needed.

The team then won two games, and they remain in the hunt for the division title with a game against the Steelers this week. Before we get to that, let’s hand out more awards for the Bengals so far during this season. The Bengals are 2-3, so it is understandable that a few players who are having impacts are getting...

Is a trade in the cards for the Bengals?

Is a trade in the cards for the Bengals?

Cincinnati certainly has the pieces to make something work. The NFL trade deadline is only a couple of weeks away, and the Cincinnati Bengals have several players who could be potential trade chips. Rumors have abounded for months concerning potential trades involving quarterback A.J. McCarron. But any trade of McCarron would leave the Bengals without a healthy backup quarterback. Can anyone say Colin Kaepernick? Jeremy Hill has been the subject of trade rumors for almost as long as McCarron. And the Bengals boast a pretty good cornerback who is not getting a lot of playing time in KeiVarae...

Bengals work out 4 tight ends, including Larry Donnell

The Bengals are getting a look at the best tight ends available after losing Tyler Eifert for the season. The Cincinnati Bengals are keeping their options open if they need to add another tight end. On Monday, the team added former Pitt Panther Scott Orndoff to the practice squad. However, the team also worked out several veterans in the event they want to add another tight end to the 53-man roster. There’s a decent chance they’ll need to at some point, being that Tyler Eifert is already on injured reserve, not to mention Ryan Hewitt is out for multiple weeks with a knee injury. While...
