The Penalty Flag:
As we head into Week 2 of the NFL season there are a number of teams that were embarrassed or did much worse than public opinion thought they would. Andy Dalton, A.J. Green and the Cincinnati Bengals were manhandled by the Ravens and should kick things into gear against a Cleveland Browns team and rookie Brandon Weeden.
Why do people bet? People bet on sporting events for a variety of reasons. Many believe by betting on the games that it makes it more fun or exciting. In fact, here in Las Vegas there are many that are unable to watch a game unless they have some type of action on it. Some bet on their favorite teams, no matter the point spread.… Read more

According to Bengals beat writer Joe Reedy, running back Bernard Scott could be ready to return in Week 2.Fantasy Spin:Starter BenJarvus Green-Ellis played well in the opener and shouldn't be bothered by the return of Scott. He'll more than likely get the Brian Leonard workload which isn't enough to be fantasy-worthy.
Yesterday I provided my five keys to an upset Bengals win in Baltimore. Here’s how they did on each:
1. Score First: Didn’t Happen
I opined that the best way to keep the crowd subdued was to get an early lead—even if only 3 points, and that going down by 2 scores or more would get brutal fast. The Bengals were unlucky with the coin toss as Baltimore got the ball...
Well, who saw that coming? The Bengals took one on the chin, and then they took it on the chin once more in Baltimore as the Ravens put the smackdown on us 44-13.
In this week’s show:
Ouch, that one hurt
Defense was awful, all phases, all positions
BJGE and YoungBabyHawk were the lone bright spots for the Bengals
Browns lose at home 17-16 despite forcing...
Unintended double negatives aside, the Cincinnati Bengals LB Rey Maualuga is not concerned about facing Trent Richardson this Sunday when the Cleveland Browns and Bengals square off in Cincinnati.
According to ESPN’s AFC North blogger Jamison Hensley, the Bengals LB wasn’t too shy about making his unimpressed opinions of the Browns’ rookie RB known:
Middle linebacker Rey Maualuga...
Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga isn’t very impressed with Browns rookie running back Trent Richardson and he’s not afraid to let everyone know.
“He can run you over and you can miss a tackle, at the same time, from what we’ve seen he didn’t do nothing spectacular,” Maualuga told CBSSports.com, via The Plain Dealer. “From running screens, missing passes, trying...
BEREABengals linebacker Rey Maualuga said he didnt see anything spectacular from running back Trent Richardson last Sunday.
He can run you over and you can miss a tackle, at the same time, from what weve seen he didnt do nothing spectacular, Maualuga told CBSSports.com earlier this week. From running screens, missing passes, trying to find a hole when hes running the ball. He just...

Trent Richardson vs. Rey Maualuga
When the Bengals middle linebacker said he saw "nothing spectacular" from Richardson last week, no one should have batted an eye. He's right. Richardson missed the entire preseason recovering from knee surgery and ran 19 times for 39 yards last week with a long carry...
After a horrible first start, Trent Richardson will now face his next match up. This time against the Cincinnati Bengals defense, who will be playing pissed. In Trent Richardson’s first game he rushed the ball 19 times for 39 yards and no touchdown. He has been complaining of an injury but he has not played well at all. The Eagles defense looked great against...

If you needed some excitement for this Sunday’s Cincinnati Bengals vs Cleveland Browns game, and trust us you do, look no further. It seems as though Rey Maualuga and Trent Richardson are trying to turn the Bengals-Browns rivalry into one...
The Bengals play host to the inner-state rival Cleveland Browns this Sunday, and the stakes are very high for Cincinnati already. After being obliterated on Monday Night Football by division foe Baltimore, the Bengals cannot afford to lose two division games right out of the gates.The Cleveland Browns put up an even less impressive performance Sunday at home against the Eagles.The...
Comments on the Cincinnati Bengals by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
CINCINNATI BENGALS (18)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 18) - Not quite ready for prime time.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 16) - Just can't take them more seriously until they beat Ravens or Steelers.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 22) - Still can't beat the top 2 in the AFC North
BEREA With possibly both Browns starting cornerbacks out or not at 100 percent, defensive coordinator Dick Jauron and his staff will be scrambling to figure out how to slow A.J. Green and the Bengals offense down.
The Browns will certainly miss cornerback Joe Haden starting this week as he serves the first of his four-game suspension. Sheldon Brown, the starter at right corner might...
