Jones got some help from a few other rookies on this one
There was not much to like in the Cincinnati Bengals home opener, but one play stood out as an extremely exciting moment: Charlie Jones’s 81-yard punt return touchdown.
The fourth-round draft pick plays receiver, but it was expected he’d make his biggest impact in the return game.
It didn’t take him long to do just that, but he got some help from a few fellow rookies.
The Bengals have needed a dynamic punt returner for some time, and it seems like they finally got it in Charlie Jones....
“Look at the Bengals last year, they started their season off 0-2. Why are we panicking?”
After a rough start to the season for Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals, there has been a lot of criticism of Burrow and his poor play.
Now after Week 2 of the NFL season, the Bengals are sitting at 0-2, just like last season, and the offense continues to struggle.
In the matchup with...

The best uniform in the NFL?
The Bengals have now turned their attention to a Monday Night Football matchup with the Los Angeles Rams.
Cincinnati will be going with the ‘White Bengal’ uniform against the Rams this upcoming week.
Last season the Bengals wore the white helmets for the first time with their color rush jerseys.
The team will now rock the white away tops and pants with the white helmet.
The Bengals wore the white helmets twice...
The Bengals have started 0-2 in all but one season under Zac Taylor, who has been the team’s head coach since 2019.
Greetings, Bengals fans!
For the fourth time under head coach Zac Taylor, the Bengals are 0-2 to start off a season. That includes last year’s 0-2 start that came before the Bengals reeled off 14 wins in their next 16 games, winning the AFC North and making it all the way to the AFC Championship.
Still, it’s disappointing that the Bengals keep enduring these slow starts to the regular season.
So for this week’s Bengals Reacts Survey, we’re...
As all Cincinnati Bengals fans sit on pins and needles, waiting for an update on franchise quarterback Joe Burrow’s calf, each Twitter notification gets more tension-filled than the last.
Will he be ready Monday night? How long will this linger?
While most of that is still unknown, we did see a positive update from NFL insider Mike Garafolo on Wednesday, who says Burrow has been improving since Sunday’s setback.
Burrow told reporters he “tweaked” the calf in the Week 2 game against the Baltimore Ravens, and all of Who Dey Nation has been waiting in suspense ever since. The...
It wasn’t great until late in the game, but Cincinnati did make a valiant effort.
The Cincinnati Bengals made a valiant effort on Sunday, but it was ultimately too little, too late. They have a huge hole from which they need to climb and do so expediently.
Here are the best and worst facets from the Bengals’ 24-27 loss to the Ravens on Sunday.
Never say die, and the second half comeback:
If we’re looking for moral victories, then I suppose this is as good of a place as any to start. Speaking to the character of...
Not the rankings you want to lead, but a cause for some hope.
It has been a rough start for the Cincinnati Bengals. A disaster against the Cleveland Browns to start the season, followed by a gut-wrenching loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, has the outcome looking bleak for some. An 0-2 start is bad enough, but an 0-2 record in the AFC North to go with it is just salt in the wound.
This is the NFL. All rosters have talented players and coaches who do phenomenal things every week. Many teams with 0-2 starts will get things...
The Bengals are free-falling down the rankings.
The Cincinnati Bengals have been here before, but the difference between this season and last could be the health of Joe Burrow.
The star quarterback suffered a calf strain in training camp and hasn’t quite looked the same since. The Bengals lost 24-3 to the Browns in Cleveland to open the season. They then lost to the Ravens in their home opener 27-24.
The Bengals, like last season, are 0-2 and face an uphill battle. Cincinnati has been to two straight AFC Championship games, so there shouldn’t be too much concern. But, there’s...
And Joe Burrow still reinjured his calf vs. the Ravens.
Things have been off for the Cincinnati Bengals. It took six quarters for the offense to show any signs of the explosive unit we’ve seen over the last two seasons. Protection issues, lack of shots downfield, and pure blandness have been what we have seen for much of the 2023 campaign.
That has raised a lot of questions around the NFL world about the health of Joe Burrow’s calf, as he hasn’t looked like himself either. Many have wondered if the vanilla play calling has been related to Burrow’s limitations,...
Featuring another Monday Night Football double-header.
Now that we’re two full weeks into the new season, here is a look at what the Week 3 slate looks like.

What year is it?
For the second season in a row, the Cincinnati Bengals have gotten out to a sluggish 0-2 start, and for the second year in a row, they’ve also gone 0-2 to start their division play. It doesn’t quite feel like last season, though, does it?
I think we knew heading into the 2022 season that quarterback Joe Burrow wasn’t going to be quite himself yet, and it showed as the Bengals lost to the Steelers and Cowboys.
However, they were in those games until the very last second. They almost won both of them. The Bengals...
