Hue Jackson reaffirms Jeremy Hill's status as the starting running back, Andrew Whitworth speaks on his contract extension and George Iloka reveals why he missed the end of the Sunday's game.
Coming to you live from beautiful Gate E26 at my layover in Charlotte, here's my high five and low five from Sunday's Bengals win at Baltimore.
Bengals fans can be skeptical about the team's good start given that every season seems to end the same way. But John Clayton thinks this 2015 start is different -- and that's a good thing.
His second season has gotten off to a rough start, but Jeremy Hill is confident he can turn it around. Hill knows his play from the first three games this season has been largely uninspiring. He doesn't need to consult his fantasy football roster to see that.
Cincinnati deserves plenty of credit for being 3-0, but the Bengals’ success has also come with some serious misfortune befalling the teams around them. Baltimore’s Terrell Suggs is already out for the year, and the same week Pittsburgh got back Le’Veon Bell, it lost Ben Roethlisberger to an MCL sprain. He may return for most of the second half of the season, but Pittsburgh is still looking at a month of Michael Vick. And if Roethlisberger hits the longer end of the four-to-six-week diagnosis, he’ll miss the Week 9 game against the Bengals.
The Cincinnati Bengals pulled off one of their wildest victories in recent memory Sunday in Baltimore, but they only had themselves to blame for getting into the position where they needed two go-ahead scores in the final seven minutes.
Last year, when the Bengals got down, they were often knocked out. Sunday, they answered a turnover with a touchdown and held on to beat the Ravens.
A thrilling comeback win in Baltimore proves these aren't the same Bengals. But the Dolphins? Still the same disappointing team -- which is bad news for Joe Philbin.
The games were mostly a snooze but we still learned plenty on the third Sunday of the season. Here's why a trio of surprise teams are 3-0, the AFC North might be all but over and the U-word whispers have begun in New England. Plus weekly awards, Monday night preview and 10 things I think
It's a long way to January, and after four straight exits in the Wildcard round, the Bengals can't judge a season as successful until they win at least one playoff game.
Against the Ravens, Andy Dalton won me over a little bit more. Oh, he had help. Namely from a player who won me over years ago. AJ Green had arguably his best day as a pro in Baltimore. Other receivers - namely on the eventual game-winning drive that ended with AJ's abusing the Ravens' secondary again - had key contributions. And any win on the road against a division rival has plenty of heroes worth mentioning.
Reaction to the Bengals around the country from Peter King, John Clayton, Marc Wesller, Zac Jackson, Yahoo Sports, USA Today and more.
Re-introduce yourself to the Bengals’ latest X-Factor because they’ve got a lot of them on offense. Since 2013, here are Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton’s numbers when wide receiver Marvin Jones is paired opposite Pro Bowler A.J Green: A 62.6 completion percentage at 7.6 yards per attempts for 41 TDs and 21 picks and a passer rating of 93.2. That’s compared to career numbers of 61.8 percent, 7.1 yards per attempts and an 86.7 rating. And in games they combine for a TD since 2013, like they did in Sunday’s 28-24 victory in Baltimore, the Bengals are 8-1.
Ater just 18 months, Jared Allen’s days as a Chicago Bear appear to be over. The Tribune has confirmed that Allen has been traded to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for a conditional draft pick. Fox's Jay Glazer, a close friend of Allen as well as Bears coach John Fox, originally reported the deal. It registers as a significant move for both the team and the player, a parting of ways between a veteran in the home stretch of his career and a team in the very early stages of a massive rebuild.
After talking about the league’s 0-2 teams on Friday, this seems like a good time to switch gears and get to the teams atop the NFL. There are six 3-0 teams in the NFL right now, and with all due respect to the teams that have clawed their way to an undefeated record after three games, two of those six teams stand out from the rest.
In Sunday's pregame interview on 98.5 The Sports Hub, Patriots president Jonathan Kraft sounded like someone who is enjoying the Ravens' rough start.
