Bengals visit 9/11 Memorial ahead of season opener on 15th anniversary of terrorist attacks

New, comments

There aren’t many better ways the Bengals could have spent today in New York City.

The Bengals have arrived in New York ahead of their season opener against the New York Jets on Sunday. While the game is actually played in New Jersey at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, the Bengals headed to Manhattan today for a very meaningful trip to the 9/11 Memorial.

The Bengals open the season on the 15th anniversary of 9/11, just miles from where the Twin Towers once stood. It seems completely fitting that the team chose to visit the site of The World Trade center and the memorial which now is located in its place.

Here are some photos from the visit taken by both the media in attendance as well as the players.

Powerful visit to the 9/11 memorial today #neverforget

I can only imagine this gives them a little more motivation heading into tomorrow’s season opener.
