More than just a home playoff game. More than some commemorative shirt or cap. The AFC North championship is especially gratifying to a Bengals team that has spent years trying to catch up.
Now Baltimore and Pittsburgh and Cleveland are trying to catch them.

During a bye week that gave them a chance to sit back and take stock of their shortcomings, the Bengals quickly hit upon the one thing troubling them the most.
Somebody needs to wake up their offense before halftime.
The Bengals (7-4) have needed big comebacks in each of the last three games, two of them ending in overtime losses. Their offense does next to nothing in the first...

Week five in the NFL schedule saw the Cincinnati Bengals trying to keep pace in the competitive AFC North. A win would put them into a three-way tie with the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns for first place, but an undefeated New England Patriots team stood in the way. In a defensive battle, the Bengals defense, with an assist from the rain, got the 13-6 victory. The offense...

Today Joe Reedy reported on twitter that both Stanford Routt and Chris Crocker were brought into the Bengals facility for a work out. Routt was paid a couple years ago by the Chiefs but didn’t even make it the entire year. He was considered the bust free agent signing in 2012 after signing a 3 […]
The Cincinnati Bengals made next to no moves to bolster their roster with new talent on the open market, but the club did a rock-solid job of retaining its own players over the last three and a half weeks in 2013 NFL Free Agency.

This position has been more patchwork than plan for too long. It is time the Bengals take a quality safety high in the draft or snatch a guy the way the 49ers swooped in and stole Donte Whitner a couple of years ago.

The Cincinnati Bengals could be without starting safety Chris Crocker for their AFC wild-card playoff game Saturday against Houston. Crocker missed practice throughout the week after the Bengals' regular-season-ending win over Baltimore last Sunday and was listed as doubtful with a quadriceps injury. Nate Clements or Taylor Mays likely would move into the starting lineup...
CINCINNATI - His locker isn't in the same place. He even lost his old, recognizable jersey number to a free agent who joined the team last spring, during a time he wasn't sure if he'd ever be able to play football again.

Bottom line, it won’t matter what they do in either of their other two games if they can’t win in Pittsburgh week 16. I don’t think they can and while I’m at it, I think they lose at home for the Ravens week 17. This is a team who has had a lot of issues beating playoff...
CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Bengals are back on oh-so-familiar ground, caught in the deep slump that threatens their season at the midpoint.
Happens a lot in Cincinnati.
A 31-23 loss to Denver on Sunday left the Bengals (3-5) with a four-game losing streak. They've had a losing streak of at least four games in 16 of their last 22 seasons. Twice, they lost 10 in a row.
In five of those...
I would like to apologize for the lack of Tecmo Bowl on the site this season. To be honest, it slipped through the cracks and we blame ourselves for the rough start the Bengals have had. We are back now and we fully expect the outcome to be reflected in what Tecmo Bowl says. On to the game…
Nothing much happens in the first quarter, both teams have short drives and are forced...
