THE OPPOSITION: Cincinnati Bengals

Torrey Smith v Bengals
A Look Behind Enemy Lines: Cincinnati Bengals   A four hour drive from FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio will land you in another mess of orange; Paul Brown Stadium, home of the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals finished the 2012 regular season with a record of (10-7), which landed them in a Wild-Card Round playoff game against the Houston Texans. Unfortunately for the Bengals, they lost that game 19-13. This was the second straight season that the team made it to the playoffs, faced the Texans, and came away empty handed....

RAVENS REPORT CARD: Bengals 23 Ravens 17

Each year Marist University conducts a poll asking Americans what is the most obnoxious word or phrase used in casual conversation.  For the fourth consecutive year the top choice was, whatever. So with apologies to all Americans, here’s our reaction to a Ravens 23-17 loss in their regular season finale to the Cincinnati Bengals: whatever. As many suspected, head coach John Harbaugh treated this game like a meaningless pre-season tune up, opting to sit most of his starters well before the first quarter had ended. With a post-season home game...

AFC North coming down to the wire

Cincinnati Bengals v Baltimore Ravens
When you think of the AFC North, two teams usually come to mind, the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers. It seems that year after year, these two teams battle it out all season long until one walks away with the AFC North crown. However, this year is playing out a bit differently. Before a three-game losing streak, the Baltimore Ravens sat at 9-2 and had a commanding lead in the division. It seemed as if the only way they could not win the division is if the team practically...

Ravens gaining separation in AFC North

ricesteelers
The AFC North sent three teams to the playoffs last season and was considered by many to be the best division in football. Fast forward one season and it appears that only one team will represent the AFC North in the 2012 NFL playoffs – at least through six weeks. While the Baltimore Ravens still have four games left to play within the division, including the Pittsburgh Steelers twice, they have a two game lead on the second-place Cincinnati Bengals and own tie-breakers against them. Additionally, the Ravens’ usual biggest...
