Bengals DT Geno Atkins and WR A.J. Green have been voted to the AFC team for this seasons Pro Bowl game, the NFL announced today. They both were voted in as starters.
The game will be played on Sunday, January 27, televised on NBC beginning at 7 p.m. EST.
Were happy for both guys; its a great honor from fellow players and coaches and the voting fans, said Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis. Theyll represent us well if theyre in the game, but I have to add that its our goal to make them both unavailable (by the team advancing to the Super Bowl).
Green, a second-year NFL player from Georgia, was named to the team from the initial vote last year as well, though last year he was not voted to a starting position. Last year he became the first rookie WR voted to the game since Anquan Boldin of Arizona in 2003. This season, through 15 games, Green is tied for the AFC lead in TD receptions (11), ranks second in receiving yards (1324) and ranks fourth in receptions (95).

BEST OF MAXIM
Geno Atkins gets a lot of attention every time an opponent watches film trying to figure out how to contain the Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle. His first selection as a Pro Bowl starter shows what they think of him.
The undersized lineman is considered one of the NFL's best.
The third-year player was chosen as a Pro Bowl starter on Wednesday, his first such honor. He was...
The hiring of Marvin Lewis marked the end of the Lost Decade. In the wake of an extended period of football futility, most of Lewis’ tenure as head coach has been spent trying to steady a team that has lurched and backfired and stalled like a stick-shift AMC Pacer with a 16-year-old behind the wheel.
In Lewis’ first two seasons, he lifted a team that had gone 55-137 in their...
The Bengals are locked in to the 6th seed of the playoffs no matter whether they win or lose against the Ravens. So it is natural to wonder whether Marvin might choose to sit rest some of his normal starters in the season finale. Of course, Marvin was asked about it. He gave what I say is the right answer: No. It’s not the right answer because the front office is still hoping to...
I watched the NFL Network re-air the Bengals deliver the knock-out blow to the Steelers Wednesday night. The game was just as fun the second time, but far less stressful. During a commercial break, I saw NFLN’s blurb covering the QBs named to the Pro Bowl. (Because, you know, we fans care only about quarterbacks, right?)
Honest to God, this is no joke. Whoever wrote the script...
Wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher is heading home. The Maumee, Ohio, native and Ohio State alumnus was claimed off waivers by the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday. Sanzenbacher was waived by the Chicago Bears a day earlier. The Bengals cleared a roster spot for Sanzenbacher by placing rookie cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick on injured reserve because of a knee injury. In four games with...
Below is the week 16 offensive line breakdown for the Pittsburgh Steelers loss to the Cincinnati Bengals this past Sunday.
Not a great showing in this game from the group as a whole as they allowed four sacks and several pressures in the game. The run blocking also was not up to standard as they had trouble controlling the interior of the line.
The Cincinnati Bengals have acquired wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher on waivers from the Chicago Bears and placed first-round draft pick Dre Kirkpatrick on injured reserve.
Sanzenbacher was released this week by the Bears and was picked up Tuesday by the Bengals. He played in five games with one catch for 7 yards this season.
Kirkpatrick, the 17th overall selection in the 2012...
At this time of year, questions always arise about whether teams already qualified for the playoffs with nothing to gain, should rest starters or not. An argument can be made for each side, players become rusty or why risk injury? This week, the Cincinnati Bengals face off against the Baltimore Ravens with theoretically nothing to gain with a win. The Bengals are locked in the playoffs...
With the Baltimore Ravens taking on the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17 of the regular season this game could have had more ramifications than it currently does. As it sits now, the Ravens, after their win over the Giants on Sunday, have clinched the AFC North and are currently in the fourth seed for the playoffs.The Bengals, after their last second thriller in Pittsburgh, now own...
The 2012 NFL season has been full of upsets, questionable wins and basically things that don’t make any sense.
At the beginning of the season, odds were Andy Dalton, A.J. Green and the Cincinnati Bengals weren’t going to take over the Steelers in the AFC North, but they did just that by knocking them out of the playoffs. A bit of payback for all those years the Bengals have...
The Cincinnati Bengals didn't look like a team that would contend for a postseason spot while being routed by the Baltimore Ravens in the season opener, but both these clubs are playoff-bound following their regular-season finale Sunday in Cincinnati.
Neither is paying much attention to the seemingly countless scenarios that will determine its opponent - including one that would...
By Stephen Stone (@SrStoneSports)Cold Hard Football Facts' AFC North SniperThis is the seventeenth weekly preview article I have written this year so I know it’s week 17, but as I sit and write this particular blog post I still can’t grasp the idea that the regular season is ending. It feels like it was only yesterday when I told you the Bengals and Ravens would struggle...
