Cheap Joe Mixon Jersey
Even though the Cincinnati Bengals suffered an embarrassing loss on Sunday Cheap Joe Mixon Jersey , they are still in the thick of the AFC playoff race. Their pace in the AFC North is slowing, as they are now one and a half games behind Pittsburgh, but there are some winnable contests ahead. Next week is a big showdown between the Ravens and Bengals. A Cincinnati win could propel them back into a positive light within the conference playoff seeding, while also sending Baltimore to the dungeon to plan for 2019. Anyway, here is a look at how Week 10 played out within the division and the standings for each team. Cincinnati Bengals:It was a rough Sunday in The Queen City, as the Bengals were housed by the New Orleans Saints. Some saw this one coming, but the effort level and statistical output was extremely disappointing. The Saints charged to an early lead, but Cincinnati answered back to tie the game at 7-7. After another touchdown by New Orleans, the Bengals were on the move again, poised to go for it on a 4th-and-1. Unfortunately, a false start penalty by Matt Lengel was a major tide-turner. Cincinnati subsequently punted and the Saints never looked back. New Orleans put up 28 points in the second quarter, and defeated the Bengals on the road, 51-14. Drew Brees was impeccable, only missing three passes on the day and accounting for four touchdowns (three passing, one rushing). The Bengals are now 5-4 and still in the playoff hunt, but their defense is dead last in the NFL and just set a record for relinquishing the most yards ever by an NFL defense over a four-game span. That led to Teryl Austin being fired, and Marvin Lewis will now call the defense. Pittsburgh Steelers:Thursday night games are notoriously tough for the visiting team and this week was no exception. The stout Panthers traveled to Heinz Field and were caught in a Steelers avalanche.Talk about a statement game by the Black and Yellow. Pittsburgh shellacked Carolina 52-21, scoring in a multitude of different ways. Ben Roethlisberger threw five touchdowns, James Conner ran for one and the defense added another via a Vince Williams interception return. The Steelers are feeling pretty good about themselves, as they are on a five-game win streak. Three of those five wins came at the expense of each one of their division rivals, so they are comfortably atop the division. Also, interesting news surrounding the club: it appears as if Le’Veon Bell will not be rejoining Pittsburgh this season and will look to hit free agency next year. Even so Cheap Dre Kirkpatrick Jersey , Pittsburgh hasn’t missed much of a beat with Conner in the backfield. Baltimore Ravens:The Ravens had the week off with their bye, but that doesn’t mean that they haven’t been in the headlines. Quarterback Joe Flacco apparently injured his hip against the Steelers last week and has been seen on crutches this week. There is talk that rookie Lamar Jackson is getting prepped for his first career NFL start, which may be just what the doctor ordered for the 4-5 Ravens. He has been used on gadget plays, but hasn’t really received any significant regular-season snaps as a true quarterback. Of course, if Jackson were to start next week, it would be at home as Baltimore hosts the Bengals. And, if you’re new around these parts, Cincinnati hasn’t fared very well against rookie and/or mobile quarterbacks under Marvin Lewis. So, next week should be interesting as both the Bengals and Ravens attempt to keep pace in the AFC North. Cleveland Browns:After falling prey to the mighty Chiefs last week, Cleveland was on a mission to redeem themselves. They were hungry to get interim coach Gregg Williams his first win and came through huge against a Jekyll-and-Hyde Falcons squad. Nick Chubb and Baker Mayfield had big days to help spring the Browns to a 28-16 in the Dawg Pound. Mayfield was 17-of-20 for 216 yards and three touchdowns, while Chubb had 176 yards, including a Browns record 92-yard touchdown. Even though they have just three wins, four of Cleveland’s losses and the tie were one possession games. They are scrappier than their record would indicate and still have two games to go against the Bengals, as well as one against Baltimore within the division. AFC North standings:Steelers: 6-2-1 (3-1-1 in division, 4-1-1 in conference)Bengals: 5-4 (1-1 in division, 3-2 in conference)Ravens: 4-5 (1-3 in division, 4-3 in conference)Browns: 3-5-1 (1-1-1 in division, 2-4-1 in conference)Marvin Lewis encouraged by the progress of A.J. Green, Joe Mixon and Billy Price Marvin Lewis addressed the media prior to the team’s Wednesday practice, and he shared some news that many Bengals players were hoping to hear.A.J. Green is going to be fine and it sounds like he will play on Sunday, though nothing is certain.“A.J. will be fine. It was a little bit of an aggregation of an injury he had in college,” Lewis said. “He’s seemed to come around quickly with the anti-inflammatories. We’re very fortunate with that. I didn’t know what he had injured — he was complaining about both sides (of his pelvis).”The main headline there is Green being (hopefully) healthy enough to play in Atlanta. He suffered a groin/hip/shoulder injury last Sunday against the Panthers that held him out for a good chunk of the game. The Bengals are referring to the injury as a pelvis injury Bengals Ryan Glasgow Jersey , though Lewis elaborated a bit more.“Both hips, and that he landed awkwardly on his shoulder. Sometimes football is ugly,” Lewis said laughing.You never really know how severe an injury like that can be, but it seems like it’s a bruise more than a real injury.Green had five catches for 58 yards on the day before getting injured. He has four touchdowns on the season, so his presence would be huge Sunday.Green was also able to do some work on the rehab field on Wednesday. Preston Brown is also on the mend, which is music to fans’ ears. He hasn’t played since Week 1. He suffered an ankle injury during the game, but he ended up returning to finish the game. However, he wasn’t able to go for the following two weeks. After the Bengals allowed 230 yards rushing last week, Brown’s return could be just what the Bengals need.However these weren’t the only Bengals to get some good news about their injuries. “Joe is doing great,” Lewis said of Joe Mixon on Wednesday. “I don’t know where he’ll be listed (on the injury report) this week (laughs), but we’re happy with his and Billy’s (Price) progress. We have a chance to have all hands on deck soon, which is exciting. Joe’s youth is playing a big part, and Billy’s youth is playing a big part (in their progress). We’ll keep the glass half-full and keep moving on.”It’s unlikely Mixon plays against the Falcons and Price will not play against the Falcons, but they both could return at home against the Dolphins in Week 5. Either way it is great news to hear they’re doing well. Mixon was originally given a two to four week timetable for his recovery from a minor knee surgery, so the idea he could only miss two games is as good as it gets there.Price’s injury was more of an enigma. He also suffered his injury on Thursday Night Football against the Ravens, but his timetable was more up in the air as it was supposed to be reevaluated after two weeks. Clearly though his foot injury is heading in the right direction.All in all, it sounds like Cincinnati will be fully healthy, or as close as possible, for their game against Pittsburgh in Week 6. Vontaze Burfict also returns from his suspension in Week 5.
