CINCINNATI (AP) — The previous time the Bengals tried to stop Baker Mayfield, he set a Browns rookie record with four touchdown passes in little more than half a game. He also gave a cold shoulder to his former head coach while leaving the field.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick knows what it's like to think that victory is only a few seconds away, only to watch the Pittsburgh Steelers rally for another improbable win, and run off the field as thousands of their fans twirl towels in the stands.
Many of Kirkpatrick's teammates haven't been on the sideline for those blow-to-the-gut finishes, which might work to the Bengals' advantage on Sunday as they revisit a rivalry that's more of a horror story for Cincinnati.
ATLANTA (AP) — Watching from the Cincinnati sideline, Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick couldn't stop smiling as he watched Bengals receivers Tyler Boyd and A.J. Green shred the Atlanta Falcons' secondary on the game-winning drive.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick got to see receiver Julio Jones' rare abilities during practice at Alabama.

Welcome to Week 16 — time to win a fantasy championship.
You already have a good idea about your starting lineup, but some pretty big names suffered serious injuries in Week 15. If you have shares of Antonio Brown, Rex Burkhead or Davante Adams, you still have serious lineup decisions to make.

Last season, it was the San Diego Chargers. They went to Cleveland and lost 20-17 in the second-to-last game of the season, the only team the Browns would beat.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick put on a Bengals hat that he got from a young fan on his way off the field, enjoying the moment.
For the first time in 42 days, it was fun again in Cincinnati.
The Bengals put together their best all-around game of the season on Sunday, beating the Eagles 32-14 . The offense scored on its first six possessions — something Cincinnati hadn't done since 2009 — as Cincinnati sent Philadelphia to its most lopsided defeat of the season.
The season wasn't supposed to go like this for the Cardinals and Panthers , Bengals and Packers . They combined to go 50-14 in 2015, all of them making the playoffs.
This season, heading into Green Bay's Monday night visit to Philadelphia, they are an ugly 15-26-2.
Maybe all of that losing is overlooked when the Browns are 0-12 and the Niners are 1-10, having dropped those 10 after winning their opener. It shouldn't be.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Linebacker Vontaze Burfict was active Thursday night for the Cincinnati Bengals' game against the Miami Dolphins.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Ryan Fitzpatrick and the New York Jets kept getting close to the end zone.
Most of the time, though, Cincinnati kept them out — and it was the difference in the Bengals' 23-22 victory in the season opener Sunday.
"We've got to score touchdowns," Fitzpatrick said. "We got down there plenty. Credit the Bengals. They've got a good red-zone defense."
