After his early-season struggles, Dalton has discovered a tick more patience and the result has been putting the ball in position for his receivers to make plays. WR A.J.

In the final three games of his rookie season, Bengals receiver Mohamed Sanu caught four touchdowns and earned himself the No. 2 receiver role in Cincinnati behind A.J. Green.
But late last week, Sanu suffered a stress fracture in his foot during practice. On Tuesday, the Bengals placed him on the IR list, ending his season.
Though Sanu threw a 73-yard touchdown pass on the...

Nick Lachey, a diehard Cincinnati Bengals Fan, was in San Diego for the Chargers-Bengals game. Naturally, there was an altercation between him and a Chargers fan in his vicinity. Lachey was removed from the Stadium, and it is being reported that the Chargers fan involved in the altercation will be filing a lawsuit. I doubt it will get anywhere though, because it will be their...
