Bengals penalties

Throughout the season I'll track penalties. I use up-to-date computer technology; writing it down on a piece of paper. Why do I do it? Well, you'll just have to work with me; I grew up with baseball stats as a young lad.

Here are Sunday's infractions.

Willie Anderson 2 (false start, holding)
Kenny Watson (chop block)
Shayne Graham (delay of game)
* one penalty with 12-men in the huddle.

FOR THE SEASON
Same as above. Season-long penalties will be accumulated here.
