This Thanksgiving, thousands of families across the nation were able to share a holiday meal because of the generosity of NFL players. Fifty of those benefitting were at the Boys & Girls Club in Avondale, Ohio as Cincinnati Bengal Carlos Dunlap and his foundation handed out turkeys to those in need.
The Bengals made it official Friday when they activated rookie backup tackle Cedric Ogbuehi and put backup cornerback Darqueze Dennard on season-ending injured reserve with a dislocated shoulder as the last two first-round picks exchanged places for the stretch run.
The Bengals defense gets the opposite of last week in Arizona. On Sunday (1 p.m.-Cincinnati’s Channel 19) at Paul Brown Stadium, they face a Rams team led by rookie running back Todd Gurley that averages 174 yards passing.
