Cincinnati Bengals back to work after bye - Cincinnati Bengals Blog - ESPN
With last week's bye, the Bengals spent one day on the practice fields, primarily using their brief time around the stadium to evaluate themselves. After three weeks and three convincing wins, there may not appear to be much they need to fix, but players and coaches would claim otherwise.

There are others still that have to be made to get the running backs bursting bigger gains than they have to this point in the young season.

Cincinnati Bengals near full strength for practice - ESPN

Five takes from Pats-Chiefs

The Bengals have a chance to send New England pro sports back into the depths of the 1990s with a victory over the Patriots. A week after the Red Sox finished in last place 25 games out, the Pats could fall to 2-3 and that just never happens. Since Belichick became their coach in 2000 the Patriots have lost at least two straight games just 10 times. But you can catch them early. The last time was games 2-3 in 2012.

When Cincinnati Bengals visit New England Patriots, their roles may be reversed -- for good |

The longest night in this dynasty’s lifetime had ended, and there was Tom Brady, just glad to be on a short week. “As quickly as you can, you’ve got to move on,” Brady said.

Cincinnati Bengals must make room for Marvin Jones

Through three games Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson allowed wide receiver Mohamed Sanu to throw two passes and quarterback Andy Dalton to catch one. He's allowed 660 pounds of offensive tackles — Andrew Whitworth and Andre Smith — to line up in the slot, and put star wide receiver A.J. Green just about everywhere.
