Football Extra Points:
The Bengals are an exciting team to watch, but they have a long road ahead of them.
Denver at Cincinnati - The Boncos and Peyton Manning have things rolling now on both sides of the ball. Don't forget that the Broncos played great defense and special teams last season and they were able to run the ball. You add Peyton Manning to that mix and it's no surprise they are rolling right now. I'm not ready to say they're headed to the Super Bowl for the AFC yet, but it won't take too many more wins for me to change my mind.
The Bengals are a young team that gets a lot of attention from their QB and WR combo. But, it you look at their schedule this season, they haven't beat a good team this season. I think they have too many holes to beat the Broncos, even at home.
Baltimore at Cleveland - Other than their week 1 win over Cincinnati, none of the Ravens games have been that impressive. They were hammered by Houston two weeks ago. I stil...
BEST OF MAXIM
This week the Bengals host the Broncos. Lets see how Tecmo thinks the game is going to shake out.
After receiving the ball, the Broncos are forced to punt.
Some lackluster offense from the Bengals has the stripes punting it right back.
And then another punt. At the end of one nothing has really happened.
Punting is the skill that is being tested today.
The Bengals manage to move...
and nothing….. as expected.
There were moments when you sat back and thought “What if the Bengals traded for Bowe and Williams?”
The Bengals will have an improved roster this Sunday. Their first round pick should be on the field and hopefully begins his domination in Stripes.
We agree, it is time to step up.
Bengals fans have been saying it, the media has been saying it. Now Marvin Lewis said it:
“We’re looking for our quarterback and our middle linebacker to take hold of our football team and that’s important for us.”
Amen Marvin. Maualuga has been a disappointment this season. He seems to be slow and often out of position. In a contract year...
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Bengals coach Marvin Lewis has gone on the offensive, openly challenging quarterback Andy Dalton and middle linebacker Rey Maualuga to start leading their 3-4 team.
Lewis singled out the two of them during a conference call with writers in Denver and a session with Cincinnati-area media on Wednesday. He said they're both quiet guys who need to develop more...

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By ARNIE STAPLETON AP Pro Football Writer Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis isn't the only one haunted by the ''Immaculate Deflection.''
So is Brandon Stokley, who caught the batted ball and raced 87 yards for the score with 11 seconds left, giving Denver an improbable 12-7 win at Cincinnati in 2009.
With the Bengals (3...

Last week: 27 (+0)
One of the interesting match-ups I will be watching on Sunday is that of Champ Bailey and AJ Green. In he match-up of the Broncos and the Bengals last season, Champ was out and had to watch as AJ racked up 124 yds and a TD on his Broncos.
In an article today in the Denver post, Champ talks about AJ and how he thinks he is one of the best receivers in the league.
Any casual observer / fantasy football player knows the stars in the game on Sunday. For the Bengals there will be much talk of Dalton, Green, the law firm. For the Broncos people know Manning, Thomas, Decker and McGahee. However, the game will be decided by the less likely known players. Below, I highlight a couple from each team. If these players play to their potential they will...
Denver Broncos (4-3) at Cincinnati Bengals (3-4)
The Broncos rank 2nd in the league in yards per play differential at 1.4, just .1 behind San Francisco, who has looked untouchable for weeks in that category. No one else is above 0.7. They rank just 9th in rate of sustaining drives differential, thanks to a 3rd down defense that’s 20th. However, they were much better in this...
The 4-3 Denver Broncos may be playing the best football right now but their record does not reflect it. At 3-4, the Cincinnati Bengals are spiraling downward and descending in the AFC North. A win for the Broncos will help create a larger distance in their AFC West lead and a win for the Bengals will keep them in pace with the Steelers and Ravens.So what is likely to take place...
