Heels in the Pro’s: Giovani Bernard
If you are a UNC Football fan like I am, and you follow the former Heels at the next level, then last night’s Monday Night Football game must have been a heck of a treat, as Giovani Bernard presented himself to the NFL in a pretty special way.
Really cool when good things happen to good people. @G_Bernard25's first NFL TD, but not his last.

Bernard, who was the Cincinnati Bengals’ second round pick and the first back to be picked in the last NFL Draft, showed how versatile he can be, by scoring on the ground and through the air. The rookie out of Carolina rushed for 38 yards on 8 carries, but his 4.8 average was better than the 3.4 of his counterpart in the back field. While he only caught one pass, for 27 yards, he made it count, as he took the short pass to the end zone.
“I saw green grass,” said Bernard, “Once you see green grass, you’ve got to take it. You don’t get many chances like that. ...

Despite a mediocre night statistically for AJ Green, only 6 receptions for 41 yards and zero touchdowns, the Cincinnati Bengals and their star receiver beat the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight by a score of 20-10 to notch their first win of the 2013 NFL season.

The 2013 Pittsburgh Steelers weren't supposed to start off the season this way after such a dismal 2012 season. Talk of a rebirth and a return back to the old Steeler way was the mantra in the offseason, but none could've foreshadowed this.

The Cincinnati Bengals have announced that they have released RB Bernard Scott from the reserve/physically unable to perform list.
Scott, 29, suffered a torn ACL last October, which to forced the Bengals to keep him on their PUP list begin the season. It’s actually been somewhat surprising to see how long he’s remained with the team, despite never living up expectations.
The Cincinnati Bengals placed defensive end Robert Geathers on season-ending Injured Reserve on Wednesday two days after he suffered an elbow injury in the 20-10 victory against Pittsburgh.
Geathers is the longest tenured Bengals player after being drafted in the fourth round in 2004. He appeared in 140 games with 108 starts including the postseason.
The Bengals also waived first...
Touted rookies Tyler Eifert and Giovani Bernard have given the Bengals a more explosive offense. That's a big deal for a team eyeing something more than one-and-done in the playoffs.
Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green has quite a large sneaker collection. It looks like he has a lot in common with Colin Kaepernick.

While James Harrison is haunting opposing teams on the field, his ghost is busy haunting the Monday Night Football booth.
Marvin Lewis, who is the second-most tenured coach in the NFL behind Bill Belichick, wondered if his time was up in Cincinnati. Instead, with new faces in key places, he's coaching a team coming off back-to-back playoff appearances. The Bengals host the Packers on Sunday.
Bootsy Collins was at the Bengals versus Steelers game on Monday night, and he wasn't even the most outlandishly-dressed person in the stadium.
The biggest question raised after Monday’s announcement that Juan Pablo Montoya would be going back to the Izod IndyCar series in 2014 is will this open the door to seeing Kyle Larson in the car before the close of the season. The first reason this would make sense is that[...]
The Cincinnati Bengals have never made the playoffs three years in a row. The Pittsburgh Steelers have never missed the postseason in back-to-back seasons under coach Mike Tomlin. Those possibilities are both in play Monday night. While it’s only Week 2 of the NFL season, history shows that the loser of Monday night’s Steelers-Bengals matchup in Cincinnati is likely to be watching...

Pittsburgh looked awful in a loss to Tennessee while Cincinnati suffered a road loss in Chicago.

Andy Dalton is very kind to be giving Pittsburgh a sporting chance by missing open receivers throughout the first half. The inaccuracy was especially bad in the first few Cincinnati drives, with Dalton overthrowing three wideouts open for first downs.The Steelers opened scoring thanks to an impressive Antonio Brown punt return that got them 20 yards into Bengals territory. They did...
