A drubbing of the defending Super Bowl champions has given the Bengals a second chance.
A 31-13 win over the New York Giants on Sunday moved them to 4-5 with struggling teams ahead on the schedule the next few weeks, representing a chance to get back into the wild card playoff chase.
The Bengals play at Kansas City on Sunday, then host Oakland. They're three games behind first-place Baltimore in the AFC North.
Players found it notable on Monday that they'd soundly beaten a good team. That was their biggest problem last season, when they went 0-8 against teams that reached the playoffs.
The win also could generate fan interest. There were nearly 9,000 empty seats for the game on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium.

According to The Big Lead, via Black Sports Online, former New York Giants running back is charging people $1,950 to play flag football, basketball, or kickball with him.

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.

To say that the New York Giants played a bad game on Sunday would be an understatement. Watching that game, many would think that this was the worst game the Giants have played in recent years.
After watching that game, it was hard to tell if the team that was just on the TV was the Giants or if it was a misprint and everyone just watched the Jets.
Despite the horrendous game and...
Is collapse in full swing and has mass hysteria begun in East Rutherford? Most will feel that way and the immature fandom inside me wants to scream that at the top of my lungs.
Tom Coughlin, who labeled his defense “soft” this past week, did something an old fashioned fan would love: choose to differ. That decision alone made it seem that the Giants were ready to come out and...

What an disaster horrific loss for the Giants this past Sunday against the Bengals on the road. This was the worse loss of the season.
There was no focus, passion, sense of urgency and desire at all from Big Blue in ay aspect of the football game.
