First look: Bengals vs. Chiefs

The Bengals won their third consecutive game in come-from-behind fashion on the road in Baltimore on Sunday. After jumping out to a 14-0 lead, the offense stalled out with a turnover on downs, an interception and a fumble that was returned for a Ravens score. But, when pressed, Andy Dalton led two fourth quarter touchdown drives for a 28-24 victory.

Old shoes and pads? Bengals prefer comfort to style

Marvin Jones looked down at the tide of cleats and shoes that were rising from his sandaled feet into his locker, a variety of orange and black combinations, smooth patent leather and hard plastic soles with a shine that could make you blink.

Counting the Clints Clint Boling knows

Go ahead and do a Google search for Clint Boling. You'll only find out what you already know: that he's a guard for the Cincinnati Bengals and used to play at Georgia. We found out a little more.

Wednesday NFL preview: Will Cincinnati Bengals bench RB Jeremy Hill?

Cincinnati Bengals: Coaches and players on the team's offense are concerned with how poorly the rushing attack fared in Sunday's win at Baltimore when the Bengals were held to less than 90 yards. Running back Jeremy Hill averaged 1.8 yards on 12 carries, but offensive coordinator Hue Jackson indicated he has no plans of changing the rotation to get Giovani Bernard more touches. Hill still remains his starter. When the Bengals practice Wednesday, they hope Hill starts showing a glimpse of his old self.

The 3-0 Cincinnati Bengals deserve more respect.

The Cincinnati Bengals are 3-0, and it's not fair for them to get the less-than treatment compared to their fellow unbeatens. Only time will tell if Cincy can finally register a playoff win, but for now it's among the league leaders in a number of categories.

Video games, on-field drive Jeremy Hill and Gio Bernard's relationship

Although he has benefited from the struggles of his companion in the Cincinnati Bengals' backfield so far this season, Giovani Bernard takes little solace seeing fellow running back Jeremy Hill scuffle through the first three games. Last week's 12-carry, 21-yard effort at Baltimore was a low point for the second-year rusher. He hopes to bounce back from it at home this Sunday against Kansas City.

Carlos Dunlap provides spa day for breast cancer patients, survivors

With such a first-hand understanding of the day-to-day challenges that breast cancer sufferers go through, Dunlap decided part of his foundation's mission ought to hinge on making life, even for one night, comfortable for those who have been through their respective battles with the disease, and those who continue to fight.

Kansas City Chiefs haven't made QB, WR priorities like Bengals have

The Cincinnati Bengals have a quarterback, Andy Dalton, and a wide receiver, A.J. Green, coming off career games. Pardon the Kansas City Chiefs, who play against the Bengals on Sunday in Cincinnati, if they’re envious.

Chiefs expect Sean Smith to return to starting role in return from suspension

The Kansas City Chiefs welcome Sean Smith back from suspension this week and it sounds like the plan is he will jump right in as the starting cornerback. That's what Andy Reid told us in a conference call with the media on Tuesday afternoon.

Kansas City Chiefs' Alex Smith needs to keep his eyes up

To be perfectly frank this column isn't the one I set out to write. My initial intention was to look at the Chiefs' non-packaged and non-screen plays to try and figure out why Andy Reid is keeping such a tight rein on the offense. Is it an offensive line issue? An Alex Smith issue? An Andy Reid being a control freak issue? I wanted answers.

Replacing Phillip Gaines: Kansas City Chiefs have a few options to consider

The Kansas City Chiefs lost CB Phillip Gaines to a torn ACL, which means he is out for the year. It's a significant blow for the Chiefs because they aren't as deep at that position (nickel) as they are on the outside. The Chiefs have some decisions to make. How do they replace Gaines?

Fournette definitely should take a year off in 2016

Look away, LSU fans. You’re not going to like what you see below. Because no college football fans want to see any of the guys playing for room, board, and snacks consider the possibility of paying for their own room, board, and snacks.

The day we buried Patriots QB Tom Brady

You may not realize it -- and frankly there are plenty of us who would prefer it go unnoticed -- but today represents an important moment in the history of modern sports punditry. It's the one-year anniversary of what is turning out to be the dumbest declaration, and the most inaccurate prediction, most of us have ever made. And plenty of us made it.

Peterson: Ponder would still be here if he had Bridgewater’s poise

Christian Ponder fell so far from the point when he was Vikings’ first-round draft pick in 2011 that he’s already out of the NFL. But Vikings running back Adrian Peterson says there’s no worry of that happening with last year’s first-round draft pick, Teddy Bridgewater.
