Injury riddled win for the Cincinnati Bengals

Posted By on September 17, 2006

Carson PalmerA physically painful win for some of the Cincinnati Bengal players against the underdawged Cleveland Browns. The final score of 34-17 doesn’t tell the whole story, as several key Cincinnati players suffered injuries in a hard played game. The bright spot for Cincinnati, in their second win of the season, is that Carson Palmer looked reminiscent of last year; he played very well completing 24 of 40 with 2 touchdowns for 352 yards. (unfortunately he also had two interceptions) There is no indication that his knee is any worse considering the severity of the season ending injury during the playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers last year. The next game should be interesting since it will be in Pittsburgh!

    Rub it in. The results will be different when Palmer tries to operate in the dawgpound. We’re looking forward to roasting some kitty when you come to Cleveland. Congratulations anyway for a deserved win.

    And now they beat my team Pittsburgh! Ugh. I’m almost ready to jump on the Bengal bandwagon this year. Where was Von Olhoffen when Pittsburgh neeed him this time? lol

  • Beat is a strong word … with 5 give-a-ways I think Pittsburgh gave us a gift! Thanks for commenting Greg; its promising to be an exciting season IF all can stay healthy. (you can switch loyalties if you want … I did it a few year ago when we moved from Cleveland to Cincinnati … but I used the excuse that the New Browns were not my ‘original’ Browns so it wasn’t to hard)
