It was another day at the office Sunday for Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson’s playbook in the 31-7 victory over the Rams at Paul Brown Stadium. The guys without the ball got it published when the offensive line held Rams Pro Bowl tackle Aaron Donald to just three assisted tackles.
They have been the heart of five straight winning seasons and when they helped nail down the fifth one Sunday in a one-touchdown dismissal of the Rams at festive Paul Brown Stadium, the Bengals defensive line went looking for a lot more than that. "We put our resume out there today," Domata Peko said.

But their safeties saved the day on Sunday in Pittsburgh. Cincinnati’s offense struggled. Twice, the Bengals drove into the red zone […]
Keyshawn Johnson’s biography, written after his rookie year, was named “Just Give Me the Damn Ball.” Before facing the Bengals last week, Buffalo’s Sammy Watkins griped that a lack of passes thrown in his direction was making him look bad.
