  • Bengals' Tyler Boyd: Finds end zone in road win

    Boyd caught four of six targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-10 win over the Steelers.

    Boyd opened the scoring from 17 yards out late in the first quarter but then played second fiddle to Ja'Marr Chase (65 yards, two touchdowns) with Tee Higgins (shoulder) inactive. The reliable slot receiver has 14 catches for 141 yards and a touchdown heading into Thursday's Week 4 home tilt against the beatable Jaguars secondary.

  • Bengals' Joe Mixon: Just short of century mark in win

    Mixon rushed 18 times for 90 yards and caught his only target for four yards in Sunday's 24-10 win over Pittsburgh.

    Mixon has 73 touches through three weeks and is racking up plenty of yardage as one of the league's few three-down running backs. All three of Cincinnati's touchdowns in this one were caught by wide receivers, as Mixon's lone trip to the end zone through three weeks came back in Week 1. He'll have a nice opportunity to end his touchdown drought at two games in Week 4, as the 0-3 Jaguars will be in town for Thursday Night Football.

  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Tosses three TDs in road win

    Burrow completed 14 of 18 passes for 172 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 24-10 win over the Steelers. He added seven yards on five rushing attempts.

    Burrow was picked off in the first quarter, but Ben Roethlisberger gave it right back with an interception of his own, and Burrow capitalized with a 17-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd to open the scoring. After the Steelers tied it with 1:04 left before halftime, Burrow responded with a 34-yard strike to Ja'Marr Chase just 27 seconds later to take a 14-10 lead in the locker room. A nine-yard touchdown pass to Chase -- Burrow's fourth touchdown to the rookie receiver in three games -- extended the Bengals' lead to 24-7 in the third quarter. The defense held up from there, moving Cincinnati to 2-1 heading into Thursday's visit from the Jaguars for a Week 4 clash.

  • Bengals' Ja'Marr Chase: Four TDs through three games

    Chase caught four of five targets for 65 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 24-10 win over Pittsburgh.

    Chase found the end zone from 34 yards out with 37 seconds left in the first half on a play reminiscent of his Week 1 touchdown against Minnesota, which also came in the final minute before halftime. The rookie fifth overall pick scored again from nine yards out in the third quarter, giving him four touchdowns in his first three NFL games. With Chase and Joe Burrow having reignited the chemistry from their days together at LSU, the rookie receiver will be an appetizing fantasy play against the Jaguars on Thursday.

  • Bengals' Chidobe Awuzie: Dealing with groin injury

    Awuzie (groin) is questionable to return Sunday against the Steelers.

    It remains to be seen whether the cornerback's injury is serious enough to keep him sidelined for the rest of the game. In case he can't return to action, then Mike Hilton or Darius Phillips would see an increased amount of snaps.

  • Bengals' Xavier Su'a-Filo: Won't face Pittsburgh

    Su'a-Filo (knee) is not playing Sunday against the Steelers, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Su'a-Filo picked up a leg injury in Week 2 against the Bears, and as expected, he wasn't able to recover in time to feature in this divisional matchup. As a result, Jackson Carman is likely to play a bigger role in this game.

  • Bengals' Tee Higgins: Officially declared inactive

    Higgins (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Higgins was listed as doubtful after managing just one practice - LP on Friday - throughout the week. His absence leaves Ja'Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd as clear leaders of the Cincinnati pass-catching corps, while Mike Thomas and Auden Tate are the lead candidates to absorb Higgins' snaps. The second-year pro will try to make it back for Week 4, but he faces a challenge with Cincinnati hosting Jacksonville in the Thursday game.

  • Bengals' Tee Higgins: Not likely to play

    Higgins (shoulder) isn't expected to play Sunday against the Steelers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Higgins officially is listed as doubtful after a limited practice Friday represented his only participation of the week. Coach Zac Taylor did suggest the Bengals would re-evaluate Higgins over the weekend, but there's no real expectation that he'll have improved enough to play. Ja'Marr Chase and Tyler Boyd will lead the Cincinnati receiving corps this week, backed by Auden Tate and/or Mike Thomas filling in for the injured Higgins.

  • Bengals' Trae Waynes: Ruled out for Week 3

    The Bengals have ruled Waynes (hamstring) as out for Sunday's matchup with the Steelers, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    As expected, Waynes will be held out of his third straight contest. Eli Apple has been filling in as the starting cornerback opposite of Chidobe Awuzie. Cincinnati's secondary could have its hands full with Pittsburgh's passing game in Week 3.

  • Bengals' Sean Davis: Elevated to active roster

    The Bengals elevated Davis to their active roster Saturday.

    Davis spent the preseason with the Colts, but he failed to make the initial 53-man roster and landed on the Bengals' practice squad. He spent the 2020 campaign with the Steelers and appeared in 16 contests, mostly contributing on special teams.
