Bengals 1999 Summary

Throughout the year, work continued on Paul Brown Stadium, the team's new, state-of-the-art home on the Cincinnati riverfront. But the final season at Cinergy Field was not a success, as the team endured a 1-10 start before rallying to win three of its last five for a 4-12 finish. Corey Dillon rushed his way to the Pro Bowl with 1200 yards, second-most in team history. Kickoff returner Tremain Mack also made the Pro Bowl, leading the AFC with a club-record average of 27.1 yards per return.

1999 NEWS AND NOTES
  • The Bengals played their final game at Cinergy Field (previously known as Riverfront Stadium) on Dec. 12, and they made the finale a memorable one. Before a sellout crowd of 59,972, the Bengals defeated Cleveland, 44-28, as the Cincinnati defense set a team record by allowing only 11 net rushing yards (on 11 carries). The Browns' long rushing gain of the day was three yards.
  • The previous low by a Bengals opponent had been 18 yards on 17 carries by Seattle in an AFC Divisional playoff game on Dec. 31, 1988 at Riverfront Stadium. The previous low in a regular-season game was 26 yards on 17 carries by Pittsburgh on Sept. 19, 1982 at Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh.
  • Offensively, the last game at Cinergy saw the Bengals roll for 279 rushing yards (on 53 carries) — at the time the second-most rushing yards in team history and the most ever in a home game (now the fourth-best in club history and the third-highest figure for a home game). The team record for rushing yards in a game is 407, set on Oct. 22, 2000 vs. Denver at Paul Brown Stadium.
  • The Bengals' 146 points in Games 11-14 of the 1999 season tied the club record for any four-game stretch. In those four, Cincinnati scored 31 vs. Baltimore, 27 at Pittsburgh, 44 vs. San Francisco and 44 vs. Cleveland.
