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.
Andy Dalton’s son was Andy from Toy Story for Halloween.

A.J. Green’s baby son was a skeleton for Halloween.
Will Clarke and his daughter look like they had a fun Halloween:
Clarke also took part in an NFL Play 60 event this week:
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?
Bengals #ColorRush still undefeated I'm just saying best I've seen tell me one better— Carlos Dunlap (@Carlos_Dunlap) November 4, 2016
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.
Tyler Eifert loves to hunt and he did some of that during the bye week.
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).
Picked a good weekend to visit Chicago for the first time— Ryan Hewitt (@Huey_85) November 3, 2016
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.
The atmosphere in Baton Rouge is gonna be amazing this weekend— Jeremy Hill (@JeremyHill33) November 4, 2016
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.
BJ, LaFell’s son, got to meet Leonard Fournette before the game.
Cedric Ogbuehi got to visit his new nephews during the bye.
KeiVarae Russell traveled home to Seattle for the week off.
Russell spent much of the bye week working out.
As well as spending time with family.
Christian Westerman also returned home to spend time with family during the bye week.
William Jackson III is looking healthy and could be activated off Injured Reserve any day now.
C.J. Uzomah stayed up past midnight to watch history as the Cubs won the World Series.

Andrew Whitworth and his family also went to Chicago for the week.
It looks like they had a great time!
They attended the Cubs’ celebration parade:
Rex Burkhead and his wife also were in Chicago and went to dinner with the Whitworths.
How cute are the Whitworth children?
Kevin Zeitler went home to Green Bay for the weekend and caught this fish!
And, we’ll end with a reunion post. Wallace Gilberry is back in Cincinnati.
