It’s an off day, so we’re going to spend it with Bengals tight end C.J. Uzomah and chase some Pokémon around Paul Brown Stadium. And we take an emoji-filled, multi-media approach to today's Walkthru.
Nike's Color Rush jerseys are back and bolder than ever before. The Cincinnati Bengals released their version Tuesday, with wide receiver A.J. Green showing off a white ensemble that features black stripes and the traditional orange helmet. Take a look

The Cincinnati Bengals (1-0) pulled out a nail-biter in New York, beating the Jets 23-22 to win a tough AFC road game and continue their success in September. Pittsburgh (1-0) opened on the road as well and is coming off a short week after beating Washington 38-16 Monday night.
He doesn't have a private email server and he's not refusing to release his taxes, but there may be (but probably isn't) an even scarier skeleton in Tyler Boyd's closet. Is the rookie Bengals receiver a Steelers sleeper cell? Just, I know, but just hear me out.

Watch Antonio Brown play the game that has made him famous, and it is a study of sudden impact built on speed, explosion and precision.

A glimpse into how NFL-appointed medical experts patrol the sidelines shows flaws in the system. Plus a gloomy forecast for RG3 in Cleveland and the first rankings of 2016 finds some familiar teams at the top.
Ed Hochuli is the referee for the Thursday night game between the Jets and Bills. It is the first NFL game to be streamed on a social-media platform, as Twitter has the rights to carry the telecast on their service. Ironically, officials are prohibited from using Twitter for game-related communication during the season, so this will be a first for officiating as well. The game is also carried on CBS stations and NFL Network.
There's a new No. 1 in town. ESPN's power panel (a group of more than 80 writers, editors and TV personalities) has shuffled the rankings following Week 1 outcomes, and the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots have moved up to claim the top two spots.
