The Bengals are off this weekend, but the NFL meanders on without them.
The Cincinnati Bengals are off this weekend, enjoying a well-deserved -- more like much-needed -- break from a marathon that transitions into a sprint with the final nine games of the season increasing with greater significance. Yet whether it's Geno Atkins stuck in Atlanta's traffic while drinking Southern Sweet Tea, or Chris Pressley checking out blonde wigs while a Gecko takes a lift on his car, the players can step away to "cleanse" a depressing October and regroup.
In the meantime Bengals fans in Cincinnati may feel a little abandoned. There's no football! Not true. There's a slate of NFL games this weekend to look forward to.
