Ray Rice Suspension Shows How Much NFL Cares About Domestic Violence


The message here is clear: Ladies, we like that you watch football. We like that you buy NFL merchandise. We love that you give us your money, but if one of our players punches you in the face, well hell, sorry, but you are on your own, homegirl. This is yet another signal that the NFL doesn't care nearly enough about domestic violence. This may be the best signal yet.


Andy Dalton in AFC North Games

24. That's the number of touchdown passes Dalton has thrown in division games since his career began in 2011, the most among AFC North quarterbacks in that time span. Flacco has thrown 22 touchdown passes and Roethlisberger has 20 in division games during that stretch. ESPN

Bengals factoid: Preventing first downs


Out of the 614 passing attempts the Bengals allowed last season, opposing offenses converted first-down passes on just 29 percent of those throws, according to ESPN Stats & Information. That was the lowest first-down-per-attempt conversion percentage in the league.


Vontze Burfict's tackle streak

Twenty-four is the number of consecutive games Burfict has played with six or more tackles on his end-of-game stat line, according to ESPN Stats & Information. That's right. Burfict had six or more tackles in each of his last 24 games; a streak that started in Week 12 of the 2012 season and stretches all the way through January's wild-card round playoff loss. No other player in the NFL had a streak as long as even 16 last year, although Jacksonville's Paul Posluszny wasn't far behind. He had at least six tackles in all 15 games he played in last season. If you go back to 2012, Posluszny, like Burfict, is in the middle of a 24-game streak with six or more tackles.

Johnny Manziel on playing the AFC North


"I'm sure I have a little bit of a target on my back, and I expect that. I had that last year as well and the NFL is a tough league, and this is a defensive division as well that hits hard, and it's in cold weather. So for me, it's football; play the game and continue to get better. We're scheming for them just as much as they're scheming for us, so we'll see on Sunday," Manziel said.

Not buying the rumored interest in Teddy Bridgewater


"We're supposed to believe a team coming off three straight playoff appearances would eschew the chance to add an immediate starter to a defense in need of upgrades at corner and D-line and instead draft a player who, according to some, might have just as many question marks as Andy Dalton?"

Making the case for Manziel to the Bengals


"The Bengals will almost certainly draft a quarterback somewhere along the way as incumbent Andy Dalton enters the final year of his rookie deal. Dalton has been wildly inconsistent from a performance standpoint, but he is very steady emotionally and could probably handle the distractions that surely would come with adding a quarterback like Manziel in the first round. Cincinnati has done a pretty good job developing quarterbacks over the years. I suspect Manziel would be out of their comfort level and off the board well before Cincy seriously considers drafting for the position." - Sando

Chad Johnson: 'I just want to play'


"It's just football. It's football," Johnson said. "It's not about Montreal. It's about the opportunity to be able to play football again, something I love."
