“T.N.B. Bengals” – Weeks 11/12

Posted by Matt on November 25, 2007


The T.N.B. Bengals are bringing their sexy back, as Chad Johnson would say, and here is the rundown thus far this season to catch everyone up.

The T.N.B. Bengals had bye weeks in Weeks 1, 5, and 10 of the regular season so through Week 10, they’re 3-4 with 3 Byes.  It should be noted that the real Bengals were 3-6 with 1 Bye through Week 10 of the NFL Regular Season and since the whole point was to predict the season, we’re right on schedule with the same amount of wins through 10 weeks (although the games that were winners don’t actually coincide).

Cardinals @ Bengals (Week 11) – Last Week

This game was a sloppy, turnover-laden contest that saw the Bengals take a 21-7 lead in to Halftime.  Esiason would hit McGee early for the quick score and then three consecutive turnovers by the Cardinals, Bengals, and Cardinals, respectively, would put the ball back in Esiason’s hands and would lead to their second score of the day – a 20 yard scamper by Ickey Woods.  The Cardinals would score late in the half on a 20 yard run of their own to make the score respectable going in to the break.

The Second Half would be more of the same as Esiason hit McGee deep again setting up yet another Ickey touchdown on a drive that was sparked by a missed field goal by the Cardinals that turned the ball over yet again.  Esiason would finish with a monster game with 220 yards passing and Ickey Woods would lead the rushing charge with two scores. 

Cardinals – 14

Bengals –  28

Season Record: 4-4 with 3 Byes

Oilers (Titans) @ Bengals (Week 12) – This Week

The Bengals would jump out in front early with a short touchdown run by Ickey Woods that was set up by a deep pass play from Esiason to Eddie Brown on the “Flea Flicker.”  The Bengals would pitch a shut out in the First Quarter but Warren Moon would not be denied (obviously) thereafter as he would connect on an 80 yard touchdown pass to Lorenzo White early in the Second Quarter, a play that would set the tone for the rest of the game.  After trading lengthy field goals, the two teams would take a 10-10 tie in to the lockeroom at Halftime.

Moon and his high-powered offense would get the ball first in the Second Half and would make quick work of a long field, with Warren heaving another 70+ yard touchdown bomb, this time to Haywood Jefferies.  On the ensuing two drives, the Bengals would impload giving up a touchdown on a Boomer Esiason fumble and a safety on a Boomer Esiason sack, the second of which would set up another long field goal for the Oilers (Titans). 

Warren Moon would answer an Ickey Woods touchdown run late in the game with a touchdown run of his own and the Bengals would simply run out of time after that.

Oilers (Titans) – 43

Bengals – 24

Season Record: 4-5 with 3 Byes
