NFL.com pegs Bengals as a team that may have a “sneaky-good” offenseby NathanBeighle on July 11, 2020 at 11:00 am
David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports Gregg Rosenthal certainly isn’t wrong on this prediction. The Cincinnati Bengals were the NFL’s worst team in 2019. While their talent didn’t reflect their mere two wins, the Bengals were gifted the top-overall pick, and in turn, they brought in LSU’s phenom Joe Burrow. Burrow will have elite talent to help him. Receivers like A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins, John Ross III and several other threats will help make the rookie feel at home in the Queen City. Arguably the team’s most lethal weapon will come from the backfield in Joe Mixon. Mixon led the AFC is rushing in 2018. While he took a step back last season, the team’s offensive line was a clear weakness that hurt Mixon’s upside. With 2019 first-round pick Jonah Williams back in action after missing all of last season, the Bengals should have a decent line, an elite receiving corps and elusiveness in the backfield. This team may not get to the postseason, but they’ll far from fold to solid AFC North opponents. That said, their offense will be one of the most underrated in the entire league, and NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal agrees. Talking about teams that will have a “sneaky-good offense,” Rosenthal lists Cincinnati and their many threats, calling Mixon a top-five running back as well. Rosenthal starts his segment by talking about how elite offenses need numerous weapons. He then dives into just how many Cincinnati has. He adds them up and counts seven. We’ve already mentioned all the players he noted outside of Geo Bernard and Auden Tate. The Carolina Panthers and the Detroit Lions join the Bengals as the three teams that may have be putting points on the board this season. All three have drastically improved with Cincinnati potentially making the biggest leap forward of any other team in 2020.
Joe Burrow partners with food pantry for hunger relief fundby Jason Marcum on July 10, 2020 at 7:47 pm
Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports That’s my quarterback. Joe Burrow is once again stepping up to help those less fortunate. On Thursday, the Athens County Food Pantry and Foundation for Appalachian Ohio announced the creation of the Joe Burrow Hunger Relief Fund, which had raised $700,000 as of Thursday afternoon. Honored to partner & support the Athens County Food Pantry & Foundation for Appalachian Ohio in conjunction with the Joe Burrow Hunger Relief Fund. Thank you to @kroger, @bose, & @peoplesbank for joining me in kick starting this program. For more info click the link in my bio pic.twitter.com/cD5bJROZQ6— Joey Burrow (@JoeyB) July 9, 2020 “I’m so grateful for the outpouring of support from people across the country around the food insecurity issues faced by those in my region,” Burrow said in a press release. “The initial funds that were raised have had an immediate impact for people throughout Athens County, and I am honored to lend my support and voice to this new initiative that will ensure that impact lasts long into the future.” Burrow, who was selected No. 1 overall in this year’s NFL Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals, played high school football at Athens High School and won Ohio Mr. Football in 2014. When Burrow won the 2019 Heisman Trophy in December, he talked about hunger in Athens County during his speech. Since then, he’s helped raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for various food relief organizations in Ohio. Burrow is exactly the kind of leader on and off the field that the Bengals need, and it’s great to watch him continue to help those who desperate need it in his community.
NFL training camps won’t allow fans but could have 2 fan eventsby Jason Marcum on July 10, 2020 at 5:45 pm
Photo by Ian Johnson/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images COVID-19 continues to reshape how the NFL season will look in 2020. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the NFL won’t allow fans into training camps when they hopefully begin later this month. According to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport, fans won’t be allowed into camps this year. The good news is NFL teams will be allowed to hold up to two events at stadiums for fans, if fan attendance is permitted under local public health protocols and guidelines. Update on where things stand 18 days out:— Almost everything is done and agreed to except for number of preseason games and testing protocols. — No fans will be at training camp, but teams can have up to two fan events at stadiums this preseason with strict protocols if allowed— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) July 10, 2020 For these proposed events, fans can’t have contact with coaches or players. They also can’t be in the first eight rows closest to the field at these events, but it’s still good to see there should be some type of event for fans this year. FOX 9’s Dawn Mitchell has more on those: NFL teams are however permitted to hold up to 2 events at its stadium for fans - if fan attendance is permitted under local public health protocols & guidelines. Fans can’t have contact with coaches or players & can’t be in the first 8 rows closest to the field pic.twitter.com/EcW99BLPff— Dawn Mitchell (@DawnAtFOX9) July 10, 2020 Fan attendance is one of the best parts of training camp, as they get a rare up-close look at their favorite teams and players. They also get a chance to get autographs and even photos with players after practice. Hopefully, the Bengals find a way to help out their fans with these two events.
Bengals give update on season tickets and fan attendance for 2020 seasonby Jason Marcum on July 10, 2020 at 5:06 pm
Photo by Ian Johnson/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images Fan attendance at Paul Brown Stadium is going to look a lot different in 2020. This week, the Cincinnati Bengals emailed season-ticket holders about the team’s plans for the 2020 season. As expected, the team will be requiring all fans to wear face coverings, while fan attendance will be drastically reduced to help combat the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. @Bengals Captain posted the update on Twitter. Here is a recap of the key points to know: Guidelines for fans attending games: All fans must wear a face covering at all times unless actively eating or drinking. Fans are required to socially distance, and this will be enforced at all times. Tailgating in the PBS parking lots will be prohibited. Capacity at Paul Brown Stadium will be drastically reduced to make it easier for fans to social distance. The first eight rows of the lower level will be blocked off (more on there here). Season ticket options for 2020 season: The Bengals have outlined two options for fans looking to purchase or renew season tickets: 1. Fans who attend games this season are subject to the stadium’s re-seating plan. 2. Fans are allowed to opt-out of the 2020 season but preserve their seats for the 2021 season. Most of these changes have already been implemented by other NFL teams. Just this week, the Pittsburgh Steelers announced all fans must wear face coverings at Heinz Field. The Baltimore Ravens announced maximum fan attendance at M&T Bank Stadium would be reduced from 71,000 fans down to around 14,000 for the 2020 season. Around that number is what we should probably expect to see the Bengals allow at Paul Brown Stadium next season. It’s sad to see fan attendance will be reduced significantly while tailgating is prohibited, but this is the world we live in now. What are your thoughts on these changes?
