We have won two already
« on: December 04, 2018, 02:38:38 pm »
CINCINNATI - The Bengals winced when the schedule came out and they saw what was in store for November. Nationals Bryce Harper Jersey .Three consecutive road games. Traveling 5,708 miles roundtrip. More than half of a day spent on airplanes just getting to and from the cities.Ugh.Its definitely different, left tackle Andrew Whitworth said on Wednesday. Its a challenge, and we knew that a long time ago. We knew we were going to go on a tough stretch, and then we were going to have a month where were going to have some of the toughest games weve played all season.Those December games — three of them against AFC North rivals — will have a lot of significance because the Bengals (7-3-1) have managed to become kings of the road.Cincinnati is back in first place after winning the first two, 27-10 at New Orleans and 22-13 at Houston. The Bengals complete the stretch on Sunday at Tampa Bay (2-9) with a chance to make team history.Its the ninth time the Bengals have played at least three consecutive road games during a season. Theyve never won three straight on the road.So its going to be a challenge for us three weeks in a row, go on the road and get your bodies right, get your minds right and get mentally focused to go in there and perform, Whitworth said.Theyve turned their season around on the road.A 24-3 loss to Cleveland in a Thursday night game at Paul Brown Stadium knocked them out of first place and left them with three losses and a tie in their last six games. Up next was that three-game stretch on the road.Theyve played two of their best all-around games in New Orleans and Houston. Andy Dalton recovered from one of his worst games — three interceptions and a 2.0 passer rating against Cleveland — by completing 70 per cent of his passes with four touchdowns and one interception in the last two.The defence has finally steadied itself, too. After ranking 31st against the run following the Cleveland game, Cincinnati has allowed only 139 yards in the last two combined.Its been good for us to get into this rhythm and win these last two, especially being on the road, Dalton said. Im not saying its good to be on the road, but weve been able to do some good things so far.Whitworth thinks the toughest part of three weeks is the travel.Its not like were travelling to close games, he said. Weve been almost a two-hour flight three weeks in a row now, back and forth. Its hard on you.After a game, you sit on a plane for two hours and it messes up your recovery time. When you play at home, youve got a little more time to recover. It cuts down on those things. So theres a lot of that type of stuff.If they beat the Buccaneers, theyll be in good shape heading into a tough closing stretch. They host Pittsburgh (7-4), play at Cleveland (7-4), host Denver (8-3) in a Monday night game, and then finish at Pittsburgh.Its tough enough winning one game on the road, let alone three, receiver A.J. Green said. We have won two already, though, and I think we are on a great track and need to continue this.Notes: Linebacker Vontaze Burfict was held out of practice on Wednesday, an indication hell miss a fifth straight game following knee surgery. Coach Marvin Lewis said he might practice on a limited basis later in the week. ... Long snapper Clark Harris and receiver Mohamed Sanu were ill. Cornerback Adam Pacman Jones missed practice because of a tooth problem. ... The Bengals signed linebacker L.J. Fort to the practice squad.

The $145.7-million Tim Hortons Field was slated to open this month, a year before it was to host all 32 mens and womens soccer competitions. The delay has forced the Hamilton Tiger-Cats football team to use a smaller facility for the first two home games of the season.PARIS -- Monaco won 2-0 away to Toulouse in the French league on Sunday to keep up the pressure on leader Paris Saint-Germain ahead of its home match against Nantes. Left back Layvin Kurzawa put Monaco ahead in the 36th minute with a low shot after being set up by midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia, sweeping the ball in after running onto Kondogbias cross from the left. Lucas Ocampos came off the bench to add a second with a spectacular bicycle kick in the 88th. The Argentine winger replaced Colombia forward Radamel Falcao, after he missed three chances. Falcao has only scored once in his past five games for Monaco and appears short of form. The win moved Monaco provisionally two points behind PSG. "Toulouse had two or three chances but after that we played better and it was a good performance from us," Monaco coach Claudio Ranieri said. "Its an important three points for us and it helps us get back on track." Earlier, resurgent Lyon extended its unbeaten run to 10 games in all competitions after securing a 2-0 win at Reims. Goals from striker Alexanddre Lacazette and midfielder Gueida Fofana moved the seven-time French champion up to eighth place. Nationals Koda Glover Jersey. "Its a good win for us and the team played well collectively. It was a good performance on several levels," Lyon coach Remi Garde said. "We had a bit of luck because they hit the woodwork, but so did we for that matter. Its always pleasing not to concede any goals." Lacazette took his league goal tally for the season to 10 after turning in left back Henri Bedimos cross to give Lyon the lead in the 25th. "Weve started the year well," Lacazette said. "A while ago we might not have won this match." Midfielder Yoann Gourcuff went close with a 30-meter freekick and striker Bafetimbi Gomis had a late effort saved. Fofana wrapped up the win with a fine finish in the 84th after being set up by captain Maxime Gonalons. The only downside for Lyon was a dislocated shoulder for defender Miguel Lopes. He landed heavily following an aerial challenge and was replaced by Mehdi Zeffane midway through the second half. cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
