2015 NFL Rookie To Watch | Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals Rookie to watch this season is the fourth pick they made in the 2015 Draft, third round LB Paul Dawson.  The Bengals used their first two picks on offensive lineman who they can stash and let heal/develop before asking them to take on starting jobs in 2016.  So that moves us down the line to this potential third round gem.  The Bengals top defensive player LB Vontaze...

By Jesse Reed The San Francisco 49ers made a huge mistake by keeping Ahmad Brooks on the roster throughout this offseason, despite his alleged involvement in a sexual assault case with former teammate Ray McDonald.

Dalton struggles in Bengals preseason loss

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Tampa Bay's Jameis Winston is making strides as an NFL quarterback. Now he has a home victory to build on.

Andy Dalton's prime-time struggles continue, even in preseason

Andy Dalton's struggles in nationally-televised games lived on in the preseason Monday night with two interceptions in the Bengals' 25-11 loss in Tampa Bay. Dalton's pair of interceptions came in a span of 1:53 early in the second quarter, the first returned 24 yards for an interception by Alterraun Verner. To be fair, the pick six was entirely A.J. Green's fault as Dalton's perfectly...

WATCH: Tampa Bay Defense Stuffs Bengals RB Cedric Peerman For A Safety

With the ball at the one-yard line teams typically have one thought in mind--gotta get away from the goal line; need to create some breathing room. Some teams will take a gamble and try to bounce something outside or run a play action pass because the defense is going to load the box against the run. Some will just try to pound straight ahead no matter if the defense clearly knows...

WATCH: Cincinnati Bengals LB Chris Carter Beats Offensive Lineman Around Edge to Sack Mike Glennon

There wasn't much that looked good for the Cincinnati Bengals when they played the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Monday night. The offense was anemic. Andy Dalton played like 'Prime Time Andy' (two interceptions). The running game was no help, but there were times when the defense looked pretty solid.Chris Carter certainly did when he beat the offensive tackle around the edge and sacked Mike...

A.J.Green Helps Andy Dalton Look Like 'Prime Time Andy' Against Buccaneers

Most of the time Andy Dalton is a good quarterback. He can throw with the best of them, can lead his team, and can get the job done--as long as the game is not in prime time. For some odd reason it seems that whenever the Cincinnati Bengals play a game in prime time Dalton has a horrible game.Normally, Dalton does not need any help looking bad, but Monday night against the Buccaneers...

Three reasons why the Cincinnati Bengals will win the NFC North

The battle for the AFC North, according to the “experts,” runs through the Steel City. Now the Steelers are poised to have a great year, with Big Ben looking strong and of course Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown coming off huge performances in 2014. That being said I think the fight for the North plays out a little differently than the big boy media has it concluding. Most of...

Why the Cincinnati Bengals will finally get over their primetime woes this season

Ah… Cincinnati and primetime football. I think I could feel every Bengal fans heart hit the floor after reading those two words together. Primetime has not been very friendly to Cincy, to say the least. Since the Andy Dalton and A.J. Green era, they are an atrocious 3-9 when under the lights. Now, most would say that Dalton has been the biggest factor in these debacles, but that’s...

Cincinnati Bengals: Player Most Likely To Break Out In 2015

The biggest find for Cincinnati in 2014 was clearly Jeremy Hill.  The LSU product was selected by the Bengals in the 2014 draft. A second round choice, it looked like Hill would be the number two back in the Queen City, behind Gio Bernard. That was not the case, however. Hill's touches grew as the season went on, and he became the full-time starter. The rookie's value rose so much...

Sleeper Buzz: Marvin Jones ready to break out

Good things come to those who wait. Sometimes it just takes a little while for things to materialize. In the NFL–on most occasions–it’s hard to really get a read on things unless you cover that team on a day to day basis. Position battles, who’s impressing, who’s not–those things tend to find their way out eventually. But for fantasy football owners looking for an edge...

Three absolute must-see plays from the Cincinnati Bengals first preseason game

It wasn’t all great, but last night did teach us one thing … Football is back, baby!! Now, I know that by the end of the fourth quarter, we’re watching some of the worst football ever aired on television, but I can’t get enough of it.
