Bengals travel, spend time with family during bye week

Many Bengals traveled home or on mini vacations during the bye week. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights.

The Bengals had the week off and many players traveled home to go visit their families, while many others went on mini vacations with their families. It was also Halloween, so players with children and young family members got to enjoy trick or treating and dressing up for the holiday. The bye week also saw players take to some of their hobbies. Tyler Eifert went hunting, Kevin Zeitler went fishing and Jeremy Hill and Brandon LaFell went to Louisiana for the LSU-Alabama college football showdown. LSU lost but it seems like both LaFell and Hill had a good time on their trips down south.

Here’s a look into the social media accounts of the Bengals to see how they spent their week off before getting back to work on Monday.

Giovani Bernard spent Halloween with his nephew who dressed as a mini Bengals tiger.

Always love spending time with this little dude. And I guess his parents too #happyhalloween from uncle joe and ledg

Clint Boling spent time with his wife, attending a wedding during the bye week.

Carlos Dunlap believes the Bengals’ color rush jerseys have been the NFL’s best this season. Do you agree?

I would not be opposed to having these at Paul Brown Stadium.

Dunlap spent some of the bye week at home in Florida and out on the water.

Getting Lost.... ✌ ️

Tyler Eifert loves to hunt and he did some of that during the bye week.

Bye week success, the rut is on in Ohio!

Ryan Hewitt visited Chicago during the bye week. It’s safe to say it was a pretty busy weekend in the Windy City. He actually wasn’t the only Bengals player who went to Chicago (more on that later).

Jeremy Hill went to Baton Rouge and attended Saturday’s LSU loss to Alabama.

The atmosphere probably would have been better if LSU won, but, it went into halftime 0-0 and was a SEC defensive slugfest, finishing 10-0 with an Alabama win.

Brandon LaFell also attended the LSU game, and it was his birthday!

LaFell’s whole family attended and it was his son’s first LSU game.
