Back-to-back on line

Posted: 6:30 p.m.

Since Marvin Lewis became Bengals head coach in 2003, the Bengals have played back-to-back home games within 10 days a total of 11 times and they've never been swept at Paul Brown Stadium. After losing to the Texans last week they will put that streak on the line Sunday in a 4:15 p.m. game against the Bears. The next and last time they go back-to-back at PBS this season is Nov. 29 against the Browns and Dec. 6 against the Lions.
