Bring on the Bengals

This is how bad it has become for the Cincinnati Bengals. No, the worst record in the AFC (2-8) isn’t it.

The Bengals surrendered a 28-7 lead on Sunday to the… wait for it…. Buffalo Bills, losing 49-31.  Ouch.

Terrell Owens agrees. “Terrible. I have no answers for you. I have no sound bites for you,” Owens said, via the AP.

“All I know is right now, we are terrible. And maybe it is — everybody wants to blame me. It’s my fault. Maybe I’m bad luck. But at this point, it’s just unthinkable. Unbelievable.”

The Bengals have lost seven straight games. Only the 1-9 Carolina Panthers have a worse record.

As for individual stats, here are the Bengals leaders:

QB Carson Palmer, at 60.9 % completion, has thrown for 2625 yards with 18 TDs and 13 INTs.

RB Cedric Benson has rushed for 747 yards with 4 TDs and 5 Fumbles (4 of them lost).

WR Terrell Owens has 897 Yards with 8 TDs and will have Darrelle Revis this week to match up against.

WR Chad Ochocinco has 587 Yards with 4 TDs.

On Defense, Chris Crocker leads the team in sacks with 2, while Leon Hall leads the team with 4 INTs.  Johnathan Joseph is close behind with 3 INTs.

With former Jets Kicker Mike Nugent out for the season, Aaron Pettrey is the new man on campus.  Pettrey was working part-time at a shop that sells Buckeyes gear in Columbus, stocking shelves and ringing up sales while waiting for some team to give him a chance.  After fellow Ohio State kicker Nugent tore a knee ligament last Sunday, the Bengals brought Pettrey in for a tryout, then offered him the job. He moved into Nugent’s locker on Wednesday, and subsequently went 1-2 in FGs on Sunday.

The Bengals (2-8) had wins in Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens and Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers.

After the Jets on Thursday Night, it doesn’t get any easier for the Bengals: Saints, at Steelers, Browns, Chargers, at Ravens.
