The Bengals make their 2014 preseason home debut Saturday vs. the New York Jets at Paul Brown Stadium. Cincinnati is coming off a hard-fought loss to the Kansas city Chiefs. The Chiefs’ 41-39 victory produced the most total points of the 207 preseason games to date in Bengals franchise history. One of the few postive takeways Marvin Lewis had was his team's never-say-die attitude.
"We had some chances to get off the field and maybe turn the game our way if we had tackled better," Lewis said. "We’ve got to keep working hard on the techniques and move forward with the same edge we showed. The spirit we had was fine. You’re never satisfied when you don’t win, preseason included, but I liked the way we kept fighting."
The Jets lead the Bengals 5-4 in preseason play, but Cincinnati won the last contest, 17-6 at Paul Brown Stadium in 2012. The clubs have tied 2-2 in preseason games at Cincinnati.
Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis made his preseason debut against the Jets on Aug. 10, 2003. The Jets won that one, 28-13. In regular-season play, the Jets lead 15-8, and the Jets lead 2-0 in postseason.
The last regular-season meeting was in 2013, with the Bengals winning 49-9.
