Gresham producing, improving as Bengals TE

Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham caught five passes for 56 yards and an 11-yard touchdown on Sunday against Arizona.

The second-year TE is producing and improving on his rookie year stats.

In 13 games played, despite missing two due to an injury, his totals rank second on the team  in receptions 51 and third in receiving yards 524.

The 6’6, 260-pound, Gresham needs one catch in the season finale against the Baltimore Ravens to tie his rookie total of 52, which tied for the AFC lead for rookies. He then needs only three yards to match his rookie total of 471.

Gresham ranks third on the team in touchdowns with six. With one more TD, he will have the most by a Bengals TE in a season since 1997, when Tony McGee had six.

The Bengals record for touchdowns by a tight end is nine set by original Bengals tight end Bob Trumpy, who set the record in the 14-game season of 1969 and later tied by Rodney Holman in the 16-game season of  1989.

Bengals don’t need Palmer; Dalton leads team to 3rd win with fourth quarter drive

When Carson Palmer announced in the off-season that he would not return, but wanted a trade or retire, most media covering the NFL said the Bengals were in for another rough season where they would not win more than 1-2 games.

Don’t look now, Cincinnati has won 3 games and every game has come down to a fourth quarter drive to win or lose. Plus, their #1 NFL rated defense has kept them in every game to have a chance to win.

On Sunday, for the second straight week, the Bengals rallied in the fourth quarter, to defeat the Jaguars 30-20 at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Florida.

With the win, the Bengals go to 3-2 and breaks a seven-game losing streak in Jacksonville.

The new quarterback, rookie Andy Dalton, led that late drive for the second Sunday in a row. Dalton was 21 of 33 for 179 yards passing with two touchdowns and an intereception.

The key play in the game was Bengals punter Kevin Huber blasted a 58-yard punt that was downed at the Jacksonville 2-yard line.

The Jaguars went three and out.

Their punter Matt Turk, who was punting into the winds blowing at 24 mph, kicked a wounded duck for only a 22-yard punt. But the Bengals were going get another gift before starting the drive. Cincinnati received an additional 5 yards on a penalty by the Jaguars for pushing the ball out of bounds. They started the drive at the Jacksonville 22.

The Bengals drive appeared stalled at the 19, but Marvin Lewis decided to go for it on fourth-and 6. Jermaine Gresham caught a high 9-yard pass from Dalton for the first down. Three plays later, Bernard Scott scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 2-yard run with 1:56 to play.

The other late touchdown in the fourth quarter came on the final play when the Jaguars lateraled the ball all over the field and defensive lineman Geno Atkins picked up a fumble by Blaine Gabbert and returned it 10 yards for his first career touchdown.

Shipley’s knee was injured in the Bengals’ 24-22 loss in Denver last Sunday. He caught three passes for 15 yards.

Shipley, a third-round draft pick from the University of Texas in 2010 and quickly fit in to the Bengals offensive plans, becoming the team’s dependable third-down receiver. He led AFC rookie receivers with 600 yards and he tied fellow rookie and teammate Jermaine Gresham for the AFC lead with 52 catches.

Andre Caldwell, the Bengals fourth-year veteran, will replace Shipley in the offense.

Bengals shock Browns in season opener, 27-17

Rookie wide receiver A.J. Green caught Cleveland’s secondary napping to score his first career catch, a 41-yard touchdown from backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski as the Cincinnati Bengals spoiled a sloppy debut by Cleveland under new head coach Pat Shurmur.

The Bengals won 27-17.

Gradkowski, who played for the Browns in 2008, came on in relief of injured rookie quarterback Andy Dalton, called for a quick snap as the Browns were still trying to figure out the Bengals offensive alignment, lobbed the ball to Green, who scored with 4:31 to go in the game and shocked the Browns and all the fans in Cleveland Stadium.

The Browns fell to 1-12 in season openers since their return to the NFL in 1999.

Another bright spot was Bengals running back Cedric Benson, who rushed for 121 yards and cemented the game with a 39-yard run down the right sideline for a TD with 1:49 to play.

Dalton, the Bengals rookie QB, looked good in the team’s first three drives. The second-round pick from TCU, took advantage of good field position to help the team to a 13-0 lead; two Mike Nugent field goals of 24 and 47 yards and a 2-yard TD pass to tight end Jermaine Gresham.

But the Browns came alive in the second quarter after a long Joshua Cribbs kickoff return.

Cleveland QB Colt McCoy threw a 34-yard TD pass to tight end Benjamin Watson halfway through the second quarter for their first score.

McCoy then threw a 56-yard completion to Mohammed Massaquoi, the longest pass of his career, set up a 2-yard TD to tight end Evan Moore, three plays later and the Browns led 14-13.

McCoy, is the Browns’ eighth different opening-game QB in the last nine seasons.

The Browns led 14-13 at the half despite shooting itself in the foot with 10 penalties for 67 yards. While the Bengals were concered about their rookie QB Dalton, who had his right wrist injured in the second quarter. Although X-rays did not show anything severe at halftime, the Bengals coaching staff turned to the veteran Gradkowski, who had looked very capable as a backup during the preseason.

Dalton looked very poised and under control in his NFL debut. He completed 10 of 15 passes for 81 yards for a TD and a quarterback rating of 102.4.

During the game, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis became the longest tenured coach in team history when he began his ninth season with the team. He passed owner and founder Paul Brown (1969-75) and Sam Wyche (1984-91). He will soon become the winningest coach in franchise history.

The Bengals played the game without starting offensive guard Bobbie Williams, who is serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL policy against using performance enhancing substances.

Bengals select A.J. Green with number 4 pick

The Cincinnati Bengals have a nice wide receiving corp that has one veteran in Chad Ochocinco and several talented, but young players in Jerome Simpson, Jordan Shipley, Quan Crosby, Jermaine Gresham and Andre Caldwell. Now they’ve added a receiver who is fast, has good hands and can outjump defensive backs for the ball and make acrobatic catches.

The Bengals selected receiver A.J. Green of the University of Georgia Bulldogs with the fourth overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Green is the first receiver that Cincinnati has selected with their top pick since 2000, when they selected Peter Warrick of Florida State.

The 6’3, 211 Green became one of Georgia’s all-time best receivers in only three seasons, catching 166 passes for 2,542 yards and 23 touchdowns.
