Johnny Manziel’s Dud Debut

Johnny Manziel’s Dud Debut

Elsa/Getty Images(CLEVELAND) -- With all the hype surrounding Sunday's debut of Johnny Manziel, not much can be said after a 30-0 beat down at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Cleveland Browns first round quarterback was downright dreadful; completing 10-18 passes for 80 yards and two interceptions. He was also sacked three times.

Manziel seemed lost and confused. While under pressure, "Johnny Football" panicked, his mechanics became sloppy and he began to stare down receivers.  The same magic that captured highlights in college were lowlights on the NFL stage.

The Bengals (9-4-1) ran the ball all over the Browns, as rookie Jeremy Hill pounded the rock for 148 yards on 25 carries including two touchdowns. 

This latest loss will likely cripple the Browns playoff chances as they have now dropped four of their last five and their record falls to 7-7.

Pettine Explains Why Manziel Is Starting

Pettine Explains Why Manziel Is Starting

Scott Boehm/Getty Images(BEREA, Ohio) -- The Cleveland Browns will go with Johnny Manziel at quarterback on Sunday against the Bengals.

Head coach Mike Pettine said Wednesday he made the move "because of the lack of performance at that position over the last four games."

"They have to understand that as a unit, if we don't pick our play around the quarterback, we'd be extremely foolish to expect different results," he continued.

Cleveland has dropped their last two and sit in last place in the AFC North.

"Certainly a great challenge this week to be back in the division," Pettine said.  "Looking forward to being back out in front of the dog pound.  We're expecting a high level of intensity for a lot of reasons.  I think it'll be a playoff type atmosphere."

Andy Dalton: ‘A lot You’re Playing for in December’

Andy Dalton: ‘A lot You’re Playing for in December’

Andy Lyons/Getty Images(CINCINNATI) -- The Bengals are preparing for a tough divisional game against the Steelers on Sunday.

Cincinnati sits atop the AFC North and quarterback Andy Dalton is expecting one of the toughest games of the season against Pittsburgh.

"There's a lot you're playing for in December," Dalton said.  "December usually decides a lot of things, that's when you have to be playing well."

The Steelers are averaging 26.7 points this season and giving up 24.8.

"These games are always really physical," Dalton said of the matchup.  "These are important games because it's a division game, its Pittsburgh, and it's the rivalry.  Everybody gets up for these."

The Bengals are 4-1-1 at home this year and Pittsburgh is 3-3 on the road.

"Really good defense," Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said.  "Their secondary is playing as good as any secondary in the NFL right now."

Browns Win the Battle of Ohio

Browns Win the Battle of Ohio

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(CINCINNATI) -- Three Cleveland Browns running backs scored touchdowns to lead the team past the Cincinnati Bengals 24-3 on Thursday night.

The win snaps the Browns 17-game road losing streak within their division and ends the Bengals' streak of 14 consecutive regular season home games without a loss.

"A huge boost for our guys," Browns head coach Mike Pettine said. "Just look at the streaks we ended. Not many people gave us a chance."

The Browns (6-3) are now tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers for first place in the AFC North.

Linebacker Craig Robertson intercepted Andy Dalton's pass on the Bengal's first drive of the game, giving Cleveland the ball on Cincinnati's 18 yard line. It took the Browns only 5 plays to score from there -- the final being a Ben Tate four-yard rush up the middle for a touchdown.The Bengals would add a field goal, but the Browns would answer, scoring early in the second quarter, this time on an Isaiah Crowell two-yard touchdown run.Terrance West's one-yard touchdown scamper in the third quarter gave the Brown's a 24-3 lead, putting the game out of reach for the Bengals.

Andy Dalton had a horrible game for Cincinnati completing 10-of-33 passes for 86 yards and three interceptions.

While the Bengals' fans didn't have much to cheer for when it came to their team, they had a lot to be happy for after the first quarter: The Bengals held a ceremony honoring four-year-old Leah Still, who is battling Stage 4 pediatric cancer and is the daughter of Cincinnati defensive tackle Devon Still.

Leah was on the field as the Bengals announced a $1.3 million donation to Cincinnati's Children's Hospital and Medical Center in Leah's name.

It was also the first time Leah was able to watch her father play since 2012.

Brian Hoyer: ‘We Know What’s at Stake’ Against Bengals

David Dermer/Diamond Images/Getty Images(BEREA, Ohio) -- The Browns are preparing for a big divisional road game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday night.

Cleveland is 1-2 on the road this season and quarterback Brian Hoyer knows the importance of this game.

"Playing a division opponent you never have to say anything more than that," Hoyer said.  "We know what's at stake and we know what's going on.  We're not taking this lightly at all."

First place in the AFC North will be on the line and the Browns are looking forward to showcasing their team in primetime.

"It's a difficult team to have a short week on because of what they do schismatically," Hoyer said.  "You watch their film and they mix things up a bit.  It'll definitely be a challenge."

The Bengals are 2-0 in their division games this year.

Bengals’ Still Will Have Daughter In Attendance for First Time

Bengals’ Still Will Have Daughter In Attendance for First Time

Tom Cammett/Diamond Images/Getty Images(CINCINNATTI, OH) -- Cincinnati Bengals defensive lineman Devon Still has had to deal with more adversity than most NFL players will ever experience.

This Thursday, he will likely experience an unrivaled type of joy, as his daughter will be able to attend her first NFL game to see her father play.

In June, Leah Sari Still was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma cancer. In late August, Devon was cut from the team.  The Bengals re-signed him to their practice squad the next day to help him pay for the medical costs.

On September 10, the Bengals signed Devon to their active roster.

This week Leah Sari has recovered enough from her surgery that she will be able to travel to Cincinnati to see her father and the Bengals challenge the Browns on Thursday Night Football.

"This is the first time she has been able to travel," Devon said. "I know she is excited to come to Cincinnati and see what Cincinnati has to offer her."

Life on the road and being on an active roster has been tough for Devon, as he has been away from his daughter.

"I know it will be different for me because I'll be able to see my daughter, I'll be able to touch her, I'll be able to hug her, which is totally different than being able to FaceTime her,"  Devon said.  I can't wait until she shows up here Wednesday and is able to go to her first game this year."

Devon has greatly appreciated the support fans and other teams have shown this season.  A couple of weeks ago, when the Bengals traveled to New England, the Patriots cheerleaders wore Still's jersey in support.  Patriots owner Robert Kraft also donated $25,000 to the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in Leah's name.

This week, Devon thinks the crowd reaction will be special.

"I think the crowd will go crazy," Devon said. "They've been supporting her the whole time with her being all the way in Philadelphia. I know her being here in Cincinnati and them having the chance to see her, it's going to get the crowd kind of hyped."

ESPN: Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict Fined $25K

David Lee/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was fined $25,000 for twisting the ankles of Panthers tight end Greg Olsen and quarterback Cam Newton in Sunday's game between the two teams, according to ESPN's Ed Werder.

Werder also reports that Burfict has been told he's considered a repeat offender, and any future incident identical to this will result with a trip to the league office.

"He's got to continue to play within the rules," Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis said Wednesday. "And he got called for a penalty last week that was, again, not necessarily a penalty. ...Football's changing, and we're trying to really coach the head out of football. And that's been the mission of the league for the last two or three years, and that continues daily. And we've got to do that, we're teaching young guys new habits...Sometimes when that ball goes in the air it's difficult to do all the time."

The 24-year-old Burfict has played in three games this season recording 18 tackles, two passes defended, and one forced fumble.

"I don't look at it like that until I have to. So I'm not worried about that right now. The guys that are out there, we have a game plan that we're installing and putting in for a team that we're playing and we'll get everybody ready to play."In four games this season, Green has 17 catches for 314 yards and two touchdowns.

Andy Dalton, Bengals Look to Start 3-0

Andy Lyons/Getty Images(CINCINNATI) -- The Cincinnati Bengals are looking to go 3-0 for the first time since 2006 when they host the Tennessee Titans (1-1) on Sunday.

Cincinnati has a ten-game win streak at home headed into Sunday.

Quarterback Andy Dalton is well aware of the Titans defense. "They do a good job with different looks," Dalton said of the Titans defense.  "We have to be sharp mentally to handle what they're going to throw at us."

Dalton hasn't thrown an interception or been sacked yet this year and credited the hard work of his offensive line.

"It's been a thing that we've really prided ourselves on," Dalton said.  "It's one of our top goals, win the game, then no turnovers and then no sacks.  We've done a good job of that obviously, so we've got to keep that going."

The Bengals will have a bye following their game against Tennessee on Sunday and will play the Patriots in week 5.

Texans Bring Back Safety Danieal Manning

Texans Bring Back Safety Danieal Manning

National Football League(NEW YORK) -- Even though he left the team via free agency this offseason, veteran safety Danieal Manning is back with Houston Texans.

The Texans had originally offered Manning a pay cut following last season, but he declined and instead opted for free agency. He signed a contract with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Manning wound up getting cut by the Bengals, and decided to reunite with his old team.

"Health-wise he's perfect," Manning's agent, Russel Hicks said. "He may be in better shape than when he left. His leg was fine. He was cleared to play. He played all four [preseason games]. It just wasn't good fit for him in [Cincinnati]. It was a numbers game. It happens like that. The right fit for you is the right fit for you."

The 32-year-old Manning is an eight-year NFL veteran who can still contribute to an NFL team. He battled injuries last season and appeared in just six games, recording 24 tackles.

Bengals Release BenJarvus Green-Ellis

Bengals Release BenJarvus Green-Ellis

Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(CINCINNATI) --  Veteran running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis has been cut by the Cincinnati Bengals, the team announced Friday.

The move was expected, as Green-Ellis did not dress for the Bengals' last two preseason games.  Giovani Bernard will be the team's starting running back, with rookie Jeremy Hill serving as the primary backup.  Cincinnati selected Hill in the second-round of this year's NFL draft.

"It's very difficult to release such a fine player and person as BenJarvus," coach Marvin Lewis said. "He has been an exceptional player and teammate, as well as mentor to our younger players. He has also been a standout person in the community. We thank Bennie for all he has done and wish him the best of luck in the future."

Green-Ellis was entering the final year of his three-year contract and was scheduled to make $2.3 million this season.  In his two seasons in Cincinnati, Green-Ellis rushed for more than 1,700 yards.  He averaged a career-low 3.4 yards per carry last season and had just four catches.

Chad Johnson Makes CFL Debut

Chad Johnson Makes CFL Debut

Elsa/Getty Images(MONTREAL) -- It wasn't in the NFL and it wasn't with his usual flash and flare, but Chad Johnson was back in professional football on Friday. The former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver made his debut for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League (CFL) in the final preseason game for the squad.

An 11-year veteran of the NFL, Johnson amassed over 11,000 receiving yards with both the Bengals and the New England Patriots. In his first real game action since 2011, Johnson caught one pass for 13 yards. The Alouettes fell to the Ottawa REDBLACKS, 26-10, in their final tune-up before the regular season begins.

"It felt good. Nervous, butterflies, it was cool," said Johnson on his return to professional football. "I have a lot of work to do but it felt good."

The outspoken wide out played 10 years for the Bengals, earning six Pro Bowl selections before signing with the Patriots in 2011, helping the team reach the Super Bowl. In 2012 he signed with the Miami Dolphins but was released following an arrest for domestic battery to which he pleaded no contest.

Montreal opens up the 2014 CFL regular season on June 28 when they take on Calgary.
