CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Bengals are back on oh-so-familiar ground, caught in the deep slump that threatens their season at the midpoint. Happens a lot in Cincinnati. A 31-23 loss to Denver on Sunday left the Bengals (3-5) with a four-game losing streak. They've had a losing streak of at least four games in 16 of their last 22 seasons. Twice, they lost 10 in a row. In five of those seasons, they've had a pair of losing streaks that went on for at least four games. Overall, it's their 21st losing streak of four games or more during those 22 seasons. After going to the playoffs last season as a 9-7 wild card team, they're going to be hard-pressed to get back.

The Case for Marvin Lewis, General Manager

  Another season is spiraling out of control in Cincinnati and the long-suffering fans are left to suffer once again. The team is in the middle of a four-game losing streak. Direction has been lost. Hope has disappeared. So what’s next? If it were me, I’d start making plans to move Marvin Lewis upstairs. Think about it. There’s no denying that the overall talent on the Bengals...

Well at least the Bengals were competitive in this one. For a while there it didn’t look great. After the 105 yard kickoff return to start the second half you start to wonder if this team will EVER get it together. Then they reel off 14 points to take the lead. Peyton Manning and the Broncos were on the ropes! This was their chance, and they let it slip away. Also, don’t forget...

Bengals’ Struggles Should Come As No Surprise

Remember all those improvements the Cincinnati Bengals made during the offseason, addressing glaring needs? Of course you don’t; it never happened. It was obvious to everyone who follows the team that the Bengals needed a serious upgrade at safety. Reggie Nelson was fine at one of the spots (although he hasn’t played well for the most part this season) but there was no way the...

Cincinnati Bengals: Week 10 NFL Power Rankings (#26)

Last week: 26 (+1) Record: 3-5 Once again, Andy Dalton failed to beat a playoff team, something he’s never done in his career and part of the reason I never ranked them above 18, even when they were 3-1. He lost to 8 such teams last year and 3 or 4 of them this year (Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Miami, and Denver). His 3 wins this season have come against teams with a combined record...
