Cincinnati Bengals Notes, Quotes 2008-12-11

Cincinnati Bengals Notes, Quotes 2008-12-11
--In the past 32 games -- the total number of games played in two full NFL regular seasons -- the Bengals are 8-23-1.

--In losing 34-3 to Baltimore and 35-3 at Indianapolis, the Bengals have lost two games in a row by 30 points for the first time in 41 years as a franchise, the Elias Sports Bureau confirmed. In losing by 31 and 32 points, the Bengals also narrowly escaped setting the franchise record for the most lopsided loss, which is 37 points. Chicago defeated the Bengals 44-7 in 1986, and the Bengals lost at Baltimore to the Ravens 37-0 in Week 3 of the 2000 season.

--The game Sunday against the Redskins is the final one of the season for the Bengals against an NFC team. Cincinnati is 0-2-1 this season against the NFC, having drawn the East division in the league's schedule rotation. The Bengals' fortunes have fallen against the NFC. In Marvin Lewis' first three seasons as coach (2003-05), the Bengals were a combined 10-2 against NFC teams. In the past three seasons, though, they are 3-7-1.

--The Redskins have not played in Cincinnati in the regular season or postseason since 1991, the longest home-game scheduling gap between Cincinnati and any other NFL team. After this week's game, the longest-absent team from Cincinnati will be Detroit, which has not played in Cincinnati outside of preseason since 1992.

--The Bengals are last in the league in total offense (233.9 yards a game) and points (11.8). They get no break Sunday. For the ninth time in 14 games, they will face a top 10 defense in No. 5 overall Washington.

--A dubious sign of the ineptitude of the Cincinnati offense is that the Bengals lead the NFL in times punted (85).

BY THE NUMBERS: 23 - NFL-high Bengals players who have been placed on the season-ending injured reserve list this season.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "Oh, no, no, no, we're obviously not looking past the Bengals. For whatever reason, they have given the NFC East teams a lot of trouble this season. They took the Giants into overtime and had a chance to win that game. They took the Eagles into overtime, and had a chance to win that one." -- Redskins QB Jason Campbell, on his team's approach to the Bengals, who are 1-11-1.
