Rob Ryan’s potty mouth made a triumphant return to NFL sidelines on Sunday, only this time it actually cost his team.
The Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator could be seen cussing out Bengals offensive lineman Andre Smith on the sideline during the third quarter of his team’s 20-19 win in Cincinnati. Ryan was called for unsportsmanlike conduct, moving the Bengals inside the 10. Luckily Ryan’s defense held the Bengals to a field goal, otherwise he might have been a big goat in the game.
Afterwards, head coach Jason Garrett reportedly said Ryan was reacting to the Bengals players who were yelling to them. Good to know maturity is a trait shared by the Ryan twins.

It is the goal of every NFL team to control their own destiny. The Bengals still do. The playoff scenario for the Bengals is simple. If they beat the Steelers and the Ravens they are in the playoffs. If they lose either of those games they need some help. Lets look closer:
Even if the Bengals lose on Thursday night and the Steelers win the Bengals will only be a game back from them...
Today the Bengals moved to assure depth along the offensive line in the wake of their short rental of place kicker Josh Brown. In case you missed it, Brown was signed earlier in the week to kick for Mike Nugent for one or two games after Nugent tweaked his calf muscle on his kicking leg in practice. To make room for Brown, the Bengals had released Center Jeff Faine.
The Bengals have activated center Kyle Cook off the injured reserve list, making him eligible to play on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys at Paul Brown Stadium.
Cincinnati also waived receiver Armon Binns on Saturday. Binns played in eight games, starting two, and had 18 catches for 210 yards and a touchdown.
Cook hurt his right ankle during the final preseason game and needed...
Tough loss for the Bengals. They had the Cowboys beat. This game was not lost because of bad officiating (although there was some) or being outplayed. It was lost because the Bengals failed to play a good game. They dropped passes, failed to execute and the defense got beat when they needed stops the most.
Peter King did approach the subject of the hit Reggie Nelson laid on Dez Bryant...
Always a bridesmaid, never a bride is the old saying and Mike Zimmer has been standing on the side for a while now. Zimmer joined the Dallas Cowboys in 1994 as an assistant coach of the nickel defense under Barry Switzer. He was promoted to defensive backs coach in 1995 and served in that capacity before being promoted to defensive coordinator in 2000. The 2003 Cowboys defense...
Bengals receiver Andrew Hawkins snagged Andy Dalton's only touchdown of the day Sunday against Dallas. He finished with 44 yards on six receptions.Fantasy Spin:Hawkins missed two games with a knee injury before returning with 47 yards a week ago. Cincinnati's slot man has seen 16 looks over the last two games.
The Dallas Cowboys were facing a crucial third-and-20 on Sunday afternoon against the Cincinnati Bengals. They were trailing the Bengals 19-10 late in the third quarter, looking at a seemingly insurmountable third-and-long.
However, the Cowboys looked to have overcome those odds to get a drive-prolonging first down. Quarterback Tony Romo dropped a perfect pass into the hands of Dez...

Nugent hurt his right calf during practice on Wednesday. He was inactive on Sunday against Dallas, opening the way for Brown - signed during the week - to take his place.

Bengals MLB Rey Maualuga left the game against Dallas in the second quarter with an injury to his right knee.Fantasy Spin:It didn't look good for Maualuga who was in a lot of pain. His absence could open up the running game for the Cowboys and DeMarco Murray.
