Steelers, Bengals both opt to wear color rush jerseys for Week 11 AFC North showdown
For only the second time ever, the Bengals will complement their all-white uniforms with a white helmet. The Bengals wore this look for the first time back in Week 4 during a victory over Miami on "Thursday Night Football."

Kevin Huber comments on sudden battle for Bengals punting job
“It’s no secret to anybody. I haven’t punted well in a game. I haven’t been transferring over what I’ve been doing in practice and pregame to the game,” Huber said, according to Geoff Hobson of “So, when I talk to people, practice and pregame is like I’m a driving game scratch golfer. Then I get in the game and I’m trying to tee off No. 1 at Augusta as a 20 handicap. It’s just a little disconnect right now between practice and the game and it’s been tough. It hasn’t been a great year so far. It’s just something I’ve been trying to work with.”

"A.J. brings us a championship pedigree," said Battlehawks head coach Anthony Becht. "He has seven years of NFL experience as a starting and backup quarterback. Unfortunately, A.J. battled through several injuries during that time which limited him from playing additional games. I feel like his time is now. A.J. will bring a very high football IQ, great leadership qualities, and invaluable experience to the St. Louis Battlehawks team."

Packers part ways with former third-round WR Amari Rodgers
"That one hurts a lot, just in terms of, because I know how much this meant to him and he did everything we asked him to do," Packers head coach Matt LaFleur told reporters Tuesday. "He was a great teammate. He worked his tail off. You could see him really growing and just in terms of overall knowledge, but you know, we are in a production-based business and, you know, it's unfortunate. It truly is. I feel for him. He's a guy I got a lot of respect for and care for deeply, and I'm confident he's going to get another shot. Sometimes that's the best thing for guys in this league is you go through a little adversity get a fresh start somewhere else, and I wish him nothing but the best."

Ranking logjam of contenders for AFC's No. 1 seed: Chiefs, Dolphins, Ravens most trustworthy
Similar to the Jets, the Bengals seemingly have gotten on track after a slow start, although Cincinnati’s Week 8 thumping by the Browns sticks out sorely. It also highlights a wicked factor working against them: an 0-3 mark against AFC North teams. That alone renders their chances of topping the AFC nearly impossible.
