Seattle's loss Sunday night knocked the Bengals out of the NFL draft's top five and gave them the sixth pick, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The last time they picked in that spot? Houston quarterback David Klinger in 1992.
The Jets loss to Miami also solidified the Bengals 2009 schedule with a return trip to New Jersey to face the Jets. Cincinnati also goes to Oakland, San Diego, Minnesota and Green Bay, as well as Cleveland, Baltimore and Pittsburgh. In addition to the division games, the Bengals host the Broncos, Chiefs, Texans, Lions and Bears.
