The Bengals found an old friend Sunday night at University of Phoenix Stadium and forged a 13-3 half-time lead over the Cardinals when cornerback Terence Newman picked off Carson Palmer and took it 54 yards for a touchdown with 6:43 left in the first quarter. Bengals win with a final score of 19-13.
Special teams coordinator Darrin Simmons is in the middle of the moves coming out of Thursday's 7 p.m. preseason finale at Paul Brown Stadium (11:35 p.m.-Cincinnati's Channel 12).
The 1,000-1 longshot paid off for both sides Wednesday when Bengals Pro Bowl WILL linebacker Vontaze Burfict signed his extension that keeps the heart and soul of the NFL's No. 3 defense in Cincinnati through 2017. “You can’t be the richest man in one day. You have to work to get it," Burfict said.
