At the start of the season, a Cleveland-Cincinnati battle as a Thursday Night primetime game did not appear to be an ideal television choice.
What a whirlwind of a week for Antonio Allen. And, it was still only Tuesday.
Make it 24 straight years since the Cincinnati Bengals have won a playoff game, and their loss to the underdog San Diego Chargers marked a disappointing end to yet another successful season. There was a lot of hope and promise, but now the focus is on who will stay and who will go.
The Cincinnati Bengals had an unexpectedly successful season with an AFC North crown and a trip to the playoffs. Now, they’re facing off with a San Diego Chargers team they beat just a few weeks ago, but they may be facing them without a number of players.
Calvin Johnson and his stat lines have locked down best receiver with a level of dominance perhaps never before seen at that position. With Megatron sitting atop the podium, who currently owns the title of second most dangerous receiver in the NFL: Dez Bryant or A.J. Green?
This is not, nor was it expected to be, a playoff team. For those who cling to the belief that the Jets defense is worthy enough to keep them competitive in every game, think again.
Here’s what you need to know about the wide receiver position this year: It’s deep. Here’s our top 12.
This year’s AFC all-pro offense includes Brady and Manning, two of the best quarterbacks ever. See who else made the team.
As much as they wanted to avoid it, the Giants are starting to look like the team that won the Super Bowl last season. No, not the one holding the Lombardi Trophy at the end. The one that almost didn’t make it to the playoffs at all.
Green tried to back off his comments regarding the Giants having a porous defense, but unfortunately for him we had the audio that proved otherwise.
Tom Coughlin knows it. His players know it. The Giants have built a 6-3 record and own a two-game lead in the NFC East without having consistently played championship-caliber football.
Rolle leveled a stern warning to the Bengals’ top wideout, who said the Giants’ defense has “a lot of holes,” ahead of their Week 10 matchup in Cincy.
“You don’t worry about it,” Rolle said of Green’s comments. “I’m a deep safety. I’m going to play my responsibility, and if I get a chance I’m coming across. He’s a great receiver, though. You can’t take anything from A.J. Green.”
Though much has been said about the Giants’ slumping offense, their defense hasn’t been so hot in recent games either. Just ask Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green.
If you were starting a team, which wide receiver would you select first? Pick a side!
