NFL is considering previous game-day violations when deciding punishment for Patriots

If the NFL is going to base this one previous punishments it has handed out you shouldn’t expect anything significant to happen to the Patriots.

The Patriots were caught having a third party production crew record at least eight minutes of Bengals’ coaches signaling players on the field. There also is no question over whether something was caught on film that wasn’t appropriate to be recorded since the Patriots even released...

Bengals News (12/16): Pass rushers put on a show

The Bengals pass rushers may have answered some questions about where the team should go in the draft.

Patriots Find A Way Despite Mixon's Big Day
Joe Mixon was good Sunday. Very good. Good enough to dust off Cedric Benson’s 282 rushing yards in consecutive games from the last two games of the 2008 season and match it with a 136-yard effort against the best defense and defensive mind in football. Good enough that even as Patriots head Bill Belichick and...

Zac Taylor blames receivers for Andy Dalton’s poor play; Tyler Boyd has interesting response

Andy Dalton | Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports


By all accounts, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is a nice guy.

And if you don’t believe that nice guys finish last, just take a look at Sunday’s 34-13 loss to the New England Patriots.

Dalton threw four interceptions en route to a dismal stat line: 17 of 31 for 151 yards (4.9 yards per completion), along with a touchdown, to go with the four picks. His overall rating of 39.2 was not the worst of his career (in 2014, Dalton...

Another reminder that Andy Dalton is, undeniably, not it

When you can’t come close to outplaying the 2019 version of Tom Brady, that’s a really bad sign.

Only because it hasn’t been fully understood yet. But we’re definitely getting there! I know a lot people reading this are already there and don’t need to be reminded, but for the others, a quick refresher:

The Bengals lost another game in the 2019 season. They lost primarily because their starting quarterback couldn’t outplay the opposing...

One step closer to the top pick, and plenty of good to takeaway from the game.

It comes as no surprise as the Bengals lose to the Patriots this week. What was surprising was how long Cincinnati stuck around. It took a second half meltdown for New England to really pull away. The defense showed some spunk, and Bengals’ fans got a look at the future during the pregame.

Turnovers cost Bengals in 34-13 loss to Patriots

Joe Maiorana-USA TODAY Sports

Three interceptions in four drives killed the Bengals’ chances to steal a win from the Patriots.

The Patriots were on to Cincinnati, and came away with a decisive victory to end their skid. After losing two straight, the Patriots defeated the Bengals 34-13.

Tom Brady didn’t play his best, completing 15 of 27 passes and two touchdowns. Andy Dalton played much worse, going 17-for-31, but tossing four interceptions, which tied a career high.

4 winners and 4 losers in Bengals’ loss to Patriots

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

It was a close contest for two quarters between the Bengals and Patriots, but New England waited for Cincinnati to implode—which they eventually did in the second half.

Week 15 between the Bengals and Patriots was a fun and competitive contest throughout two quarters. But, a familiar storyline emerged in the second half as Cincinnati failed to get a win against Bill Belichick and Tom Brady yet again.

Really, much of the team played well enough to win, but...

Watch: Andy Dalton throws horrendous pick-six against Patriots

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton regained his starting job two weeks ago. We’re not exactly too sure why. That came out in droves Sunday against an elite level Patriots defense. Already down 20-10 midway through the third quarter and having thrown an interception earlier in the game, Dalton was victimized by stud Patriots corner Stephon Gilmore on this 64-yard interception return for a touchdown. We’re honestly not too sure what Dalton was doing there. Throwing late and to the...

Watch: Mascot wipes out a bunch of kids during Bengals halftime 'game'

Halftime shows tend to provide some light entertainment for fans who haven’t run to the concession stand or bathrooms, but the Cincinnati Bengals inadvertently took things up a notch on Sunday. The Bengals staged a game between numerous mascots and some kids. Obviously, this is for fun and not usually highlight worthy. Don’t tell that to the Cincinnati Bearcats’ mascot, who absolutely wrecked a bunch of kids trying to tackle them. The close-up reveals just how one-sided this was....

Watch: Stunning video of Patriots videotaping incident shows why NFL is upset

The NFL reportedly has all options on the table as it ponders discipline for the New England Patriots videotaping incident last Sunday.  Now an exclusive video obtained by Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer shows exactly why that’s the case. Glazer shared this video live on air Sunday morning ahead of the NFL games. It highlights an exchange between a Cincinnati Bengals employee and the Robert Kraft employee filming the Bengals’ sideline. In the video, the Bengals employee rightly point out that...

Watch: Joe Mixon turns loss into unbelievable 29-yard run vs. Patriots

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon hasn’t had much room to run this season behind one of the NFL’s worst offensive lines. He made the best of his situation on Sunday with an insane 29-yard run against the New England Patriots. New England’s front-seven immediately got into the backfield moments after the snap. Despite being cornered, Mixon slipped out of a tackle and then squeezed between three defenders and taking off for a huge run. The 29-yard gain put Cincinnati’s offense...
