The Bengals have gaping opportunities for exploitation by the Eagles in the Cincinnati secondary, and there are offensive line weaknesses to exploit, too--- if only the Birds' offense can be patient enough to expose and attack them.
Tonight will reveal to us who's zooming whom...
DT Geno Atkins (#97, 6-1, 300 lbs. out of Georgia, drafted 4th round in 2010) could end up neutralizing all of the possible advantages the Eagles may have in targeting the Bengals' backside defense.
"I think if you're Cincinnati, you've got to take that Eagles run game away and get it between that third-and-three and third-and-eight kind of look," says Mike Mayock, the analyst for Thursday night's telecast. "And that's where defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer is at his best."
The Bengals lead the NFL in sacks per pass. The Eagles are the sixth worst in the league allowing sacks per pass...

The Cincinnati Bengals are in the hunt, and they showed that on the field last night against the Eagles, with a defense that forced 5 turnovers on their way to a victory thats puts them a half-game ahead of the Pittsburgh Steelers in their quest for a playoff spot.
QB Andy Dalton (13/27, 127 YDS, 1 TD) threw a TD pass and ran for one. BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 106 yards, also...
Eagles QB Michael Vick was cleared to return by an independent league neurologist, but the signal caller won’t suit up against the Bengals, per Reuben Frank.
Eagles HC Andy Reid noted that Nick Foles would be the starter for Philadelphia the rest of the way no matter what happened with Vick, so it’s likely just a precaution keeping out Vick.
The Eagles will need a strong game...
So long, Eagles.
Up ahead for the Cincinnati Bengals, the only Pennsylvania team that truly matters.
Andy Dalton threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score, an opportunistic defense forced five turnovers and Cincinnati beat the Philadelphia Eagles 34-13 on Thursday night.
The Bengals (8-6) took a half-game lead over the Steelers for the last playoff spot in the AFC. But...
The Philadelphia Eagles will once again be without quarterback
Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy tonight when they take on the
Cincinnati Bengals as they recover from head injuries, and tight end Brent
Celek will be joining them on the sidelines after sustaining a concussion of
his own last weekend.
Vick and McCoy were cleared to return to practice earlier
Jeremy Maclin was listed as limited with a groin injury on Monday after hurting it following the Philadelphia Eagles’ comeback win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, and now we know the cause of the injury.
Per Tim McManus, Maclin told reporters on Tuesday that his groin was hurt when cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha jumped on him to celebrate the winning touchdown he caught on...
All signs point to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie firing Andy Reid at the end of this season but if it happens Reid still wants to coach and doesn't want to take any time off, Michael Silver of Yahoo Sports.
"That's not where I'm at," he said Tuesday when asked about taking time off as he left the practice field following a midday walk through in preparation of...
As we all know the Eagles season didn't quite play out the way we thought it would. Coming off of last season's 8-8 record, this year was bound for improvement. Man, were we wrong. Watching an Eagles game was extremely painful at times this season. Even our friends from Cover Sports and the awesome banner above couldn't help make the experience a little better...
NewsBefore you could even sit down to enjoy the game, Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin put the ball on the ground. The Bengals had noticed the carelessness with which the Birds handled the football and came into the game thinking about forcing fumbles. They’ve already got one early.
The offensive line isn’t getting a lot...
After the Bengals 34-13 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night, Cincinnati receiver A.J. Green joined the folks over at the NFL Network postgame show to talk about his performance.
Before he left the stage, A.J. was asked by NFL Network's Rich Eisen to show off his juggling skills and Mr. Green obliged.
Watch as he juggles nearly four oranges at once:...
This particular write-up may be a bit of a departure from the normal routine here on Thursday's during the season, but I think Sunday was a rare occasion where a lot of things happened worth noting. We have mentioned at great length that the Cowboys win was both memorable and unexplainable because of so many components of the game that were not This particular write-up may be...
Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Nick Foles struggled last night going 16-of-33 for 182 yards with a touchdown and an interception for a 62.9 quarterback rating. He was also credited with a lost fumble.
Michael Vick has been cleared for a return by an independent neurologist and could be available Week 16 against the Redskins, but Eagles coach Andy Reid said, Im going...
Judge…audience…people of the jury. What we have here today in front of us is a case so vile…so heinous…so uncomfortably dramatized by the writer that we must bring it to light so that others might find a way to ease this poor man’s suffering. BenJarvus Green-Ellis has been a stand-up RB2 for most of the year and his efforts have gone virtually ignored. For every bright...
Congratulations! You have made your fantasy football playoffs. Now is not the time to try something new. That being said, Thursday Night Football gives you the Philadelphia Eagles against the slipping Cincinnati Bengals. Do you have a play here?QuarterbacksOkay last week Nick Foles was the No. 2 fantasy quarterback. He threw for 381 yards with two passing touchdowns and one running...
Late in November in an apparent cost cutting move the Philadelphia Eagles cut Jason Babin. At the time, while many people that I spoke to called it a blatant cash motivated move by a cheap owner I found plenty of reasons from a football sense to justify it. The recent decision to reduce Mike Patterson's salary after placing him on the non-football illness list is much more difficult...
