Bengals TE Tyler Eifert Suffers Gruesome Injury During Win Over Falcons

Bengals Tyler Eifert was taken off the field on a cart after suffering what appeared to be a gruesome lower leg injury on Sunday against the Falcons in Atlanta.

Eifert already had caught a 14-yard touchdown reception when he made his fourth reception early in the third quarter.

The 28-year-old Eifert caught a short pass from quarterback Andy Dalton and was dragged to the ground by Falcons linebacker De’Vondre Campbell. The tackle left Eifert’s right ankle twisted in an awkward way.

An air cast was placed on his lower leg, and Eifert was carted off the field with tears in his eye.

Bengals Road to the Top of the AFC North Off to a Good Start; But Won’t Be Easy

Things got off to a good start for the Bengals as they took care of business in the first week of the NFL season Sunday in Indianapolis, topping the Colts 34-23.

Right away things will get harder for the Cats in week two, as the team will have a short week and a Thursday night game at home against the Ravens, who were runaway winners in week one at home against the Bills.

When you look at American Football Betting and the week two game between the Bengals and Ravens, right now Vegas has the Bengals sitting as a Pick’em with Baltimore, an interesting line for two teams that are looking up to try and top the Steelers who come into 2018 as the defending AFC North Champs.

People right away think that beating the Ravens is a big game, and make no mistake it is, but then the Bengals will get some rest before yet another big game the following Sunday as they will head to Carolina to take on Cam Newton and the Panthers, who played great on defense Sunday in a 16-8 win over the Dallas Cowboys to start the season.

A week later the team will head to take on Matt Ryan and the Falcons in Atlanta, two huge road games against two good NFC South teams, the division out of the NFC the Bengals as well as the rest of the AFC North will take on in 2018.

Sunday, October 14th the Bengals are at home for the Steelers, a game the team pretty much has to win in order to make a statement in the division.

It’s been awhile since they have beaten the Steelers at home, and last season they had a lead on a game on Monday night, but it was yet another comeback for Pittsburgh, as the Steelers rallied and did enough for a win.

November 18th and 25th, back to back games, the Bengals will take on the Ravens on the road and the Cleveland Browns at home, two games that also will go a long way in seeing how good this team can be.

With the way the AFC North usually shapes up, the team has to go no less than 4-2 in their six division games, and with a season ending game at Pittsburgh, it’s not going to be easy for the Cats to win the North, but a fast start and big wins in the division will give them the best chance in getting the job done.

Geno Atkins Saying Ending His Career with the Bengals is Important

Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins has never hit the open market, but he plans to keep it that way, Katherine Terrell of ESPN reports.

Atkins, 30, signed a four-year contract extension on Tuesday that could keep him in Cincinnati into retirement if he doesn’t play past age 34. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the $16.3 million yearly average is the highest given to a non-quarterback who is 30 or older.

“They were the team that drafted me. I love it here. I love the city. I love the organization,” Atkins said. “It’s something to cement my legacy here, and I think that’s important to finish where I started. We’ve got unfinished business, this whole team, and me and ‘Los are trying to bring a Super Bowl to Cincinnati.”

Atkins, who rarely does interviews, hasn’t discussed his contract publicly prior to this week, only to say it shows the franchise “takes care of its own.”

“I mean honestly, you do it the right away, show up, go to OTAs, training camp, do all the stuff. Don’t make big hoopla or talk to the media about it,” he said of his approach.

Atkins, with 61 career sacks, is second behind only defensive end Carlos Dunlap in all-time sacks for the Bengals. Dunlap, who has 64.5 career sacks, received a three-year, $45 million extension on Tuesday.

Atkins said the entire process has been “business as usual,” although he feels it’s important to finish his career in Cincinnati, whenever that may be.
