Rookie Trevor Robinson starts at center for the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, giving the New York Giants' defensive line an advantage.
Both Robinson and veteran center Jeff Faine have been bothered by hamstring injuries. They had to split time during a 31-23 loss to Denver last week.
Receiver Brandon Tate starts a second straight game for Armon Binns, bothered by an ankle injury.
The Giants had their usual starting lineup even though several players were limited during the week. Receiver Hakeem Nicks was limited in practice by a knee injury, and running back Ahmad Bradshaw is in the lineup despite a foot injury that forced him to skip practice on Friday.
Former Bengals linebacker Keith Rivers is inactive for the Giants.

Yes, Ventrell Jenkins had a short offseason stint with the Cincinnati Bengals in 2009. Yes, Jenkins was arrested last week for beating his fiancee. Yes, Jenkins was unfazed when cops blasted him with a Taser multiple times.

CINCINNATI - Just in time.
Among the highlight items of a wild NFL Sunday is the Bengals 31-13 win over the Giants, one that the Bengals would have celebrated like crazy had it come against the defending Super Bowl champs or some pee-wee team from down the street.
Winning is the greatest deodorant, and you can guess what was needed in that Bengals locker room.
The Bengals are...
In an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio’s Adam Schein and Rich Gannon, star wide receiver AJ Green lamented on their current record and missed opportunities versus previous opponents. After asked by Gannon on his thoughts about playing a team that has struggled on defense like the Kansas City Chiefs next week, Green had this to say:
“Like I said we can’t go into any game...
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton took advantage of everything the Giants gave him Sunday, throwing for four touchdowns and 199 yards.Fantasy Spin:Dalton found A.J. Green on a blown coverage for a 56-yard touchdown early and then took advantage of several short following New York turnovers. The sophomore Dalton has been an underrated fantasy signal caller this season, throwing for...
Bengals wide receiver Armon Binns is a healthy scratch in Week 10.Fantasy Spin:It appears he has lost the starting spot to Mohamed Sanu and Brandon Tate.
A.J. Green was right. The defending Super Bowl champions have a lot of holes, and not just on their defense.
Andy Dalton threw a career-high four touchdown passes - each to a different receiver - and the Cincinnati Bengals ended their four-game losing streak by beating the reeling New York Giants 31-13 on Sunday.
The Bengals (4-5) took advantage of a fumble and Eli Manning'...
Time to give credit where it’s due. I’ve been tough on the Bengals this year. Brutal. But here they were with their backs against the wall and they responded with an improbable 31-13 dismantling of the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants in Cincinnati on Sunday.
The Bengals dominated this game from start to finish. They had some luck go their way – every bounce was...
The best game of Andy Dalton's career saved the Cincinnati Bengals' season, ended their four-game losing streak and provided a chance to get back into playoff contention with a strong closing run.
Things aren't so upbeat for the defending Super Bowl champions. Sure, the New York Giants are still in first place, but their trend is definitely down.
Dalton threw a career...
The New York Giants blew a fourth-quarter lead last week as their four-game winning streak came to an end. With a recent history of struggling through the second half of the season, they hope a matchup with the sliding Cincinnati Bengals proves to be just what they need.

One of the early Sunday games features the (6-3) New York Giants against the (3-5) Cincinnati Bengals. The Giants are coming off a home game where they had the game won (thanks to some questionable calls) until the Steelers imposed their will on them and found a way to come back. The Bengals were picked apart by Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.
I fully expect that the Giants...
