So long, Eagles.
Up ahead for the Cincinnati Bengals, the only Pennsylvania team that truly matters.
Andy Dalton threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score, an opportunistic defense forced five turnovers and Cincinnati beat the Philadelphia Eagles 34-13 on Thursday night.
The Bengals (8-6) took a half-game lead over the Steelers for the last playoff spot in the AFC. But their game at Pittsburgh next week is far more important in the standings than this one.
The Bengals would clinch their second straight playoff berth with a win over the Steelers if Pittsburgh loses at Dallas this Sunday. A loss to the Steelers, though, likely would ruin Cincinnati's chances because it would lose the tiebreaker.
''We control what we can control,'' coach Marvin Lewis said. ''We want to win in December, so we have a chance to win in January.''
Can they beat the Steelers? Probably not if they play like they did for most of their 60 minutes at Lincoln Finan...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Cincinnati Bengals are in the hunt, and they showed that on the field last night against the Eagles, with a defense that forced 5 turnovers on their way to a victory thats puts them a half-game ahead of the Pittsburgh Steelers in their quest for a playoff spot.
QB Andy Dalton (13/27, 127 YDS, 1 TD) threw a TD pass and ran for one. BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 106 yards, also...
Eagles QB Michael Vick was cleared to return by an independent league neurologist, but the signal caller won’t suit up against the Bengals, per Reuben Frank.
Eagles HC Andy Reid noted that Nick Foles would be the starter for Philadelphia the rest of the way no matter what happened with Vick, so it’s likely just a precaution keeping out Vick.
The Eagles will need a strong game...

The Philadelphia Eagles will once again be without quarterback
Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy tonight when they take on the
Cincinnati Bengals as they recover from head injuries, and tight end Brent
Celek will be joining them on the sidelines after sustaining a concussion of
his own last weekend.

Today in his next-day press conference, Eagles Coach For Too Many Days That End In Y Andy Reid pointed out how turnovers killed his team in last night's game against Cincy, how you just can't have that, and how he takes complete responsibility for the team doing this, as if it were a new problem, rather than something that's been systemic. And...
As we all know the Eagles season didn't quite play out the way we thought it would. Coming off of last season's 8-8 record, this year was bound for improvement. Man, were we wrong. Watching an Eagles game was extremely painful at times this season. Even our friends from Cover Sports and the awesome banner above couldn't help make the experience a little better...
NewsBefore you could even sit down to enjoy the game, Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin put the ball on the ground. The Bengals had noticed the carelessness with which the Birds handled the football and came into the game thinking about forcing fumbles. They’ve already got one early.
The offensive line isn’t getting a lot...
Cincinnati Bengals (7-6) @ Philadelphia Eagles (4-9)
Kickoff: 7:20 PM EST
The Eagles need to do a lot of things right to get a win this week. The first involves something they haven’t done all year; protect the QB. The Bengals have quite possibly the best pass rush in the league. One hinging factor is Michael Johnson who has not practiced this week due to a toe injury and is listed...
After the Bengals 34-13 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night, Cincinnati receiver A.J. Green joined the folks over at the NFL Network postgame show to talk about his performance.
Before he left the stage, A.J. was asked by NFL Network's Rich Eisen to show off his juggling skills and Mr. Green obliged.
Watch as he juggles nearly four oranges at once:...
Judge…audience…people of the jury. What we have here today in front of us is a case so vile…so heinous…so uncomfortably dramatized by the writer that we must bring it to light so that others might find a way to ease this poor man’s suffering. BenJarvus Green-Ellis has been a stand-up RB2 for most of the year and his efforts have gone virtually ignored. For every bright...
Late in November in an apparent cost cutting move the Philadelphia Eagles cut Jason Babin. At the time, while many people that I spoke to called it a blatant cash motivated move by a cheap owner I found plenty of reasons from a football sense to justify it. The recent decision to reduce Mike Patterson's salary after placing him on the non-football illness list is much more difficult...
