Sometimes, the only way to get through a pitiful season is to imbibe a little at the bar. The Buccaneers deal their fans a low blow when they are caught serving colored water instead of tequila.

As the Buccaneers stumbled their way to another loss, November 9th, against the Atlanta Falcons, their concessions vendor, Aramark, also dropped the ball. Troy Sykes was at a bar, on the Club level of Raymond James Stadium, when he and a friend ordered some Tequila. "The ladies next to us were drinking Cuervo, and we asked for a couple of shots of Cuervo. When they gave them to us, we took them and they were colored water. That's all it was," Sykes stated.

The Bengals winced when the schedule came out and they saw what was in store for November. Three consecutive road games. Traveling 5,708 miles roundtrip. More than half of a day spent on airplanes just getting to and from the cities.

There are few phrases coaches utter that drive offensive tackles as crazy as the one they hear each practice and in every one-on-one rep they take against defensive ends. "Get their hands down!" Atlanta, Tampa Bay, Green Bay, Cincinnati, San Francisco. It doesn't matter which city a tackle calls home or which team he plays for, he's going to hear those four words quite regularly.

Scouting Report: Cincinnati Bengals

On Sunday, the 2-9 Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the 7-3-1 Cincinnati Bengals at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. It will be the 11th meeting between the two teams and the Buccaneers' second attempt this season to extend a winning streak against a specific opponent to seven games. The Bengals are trying to sweep a three-game road swing through New Orleans, Houston and Tampa and at the same time maintain their very slim lead in the extremely competitive AFC North. The Buccaneers, even at 2-9, are still in the playoff hunt, just two games behind NFC South co-leaders Atlanta and New Orleans.
