Bengals Prep for Atlanta Monday Night

The Bengals on Monday night travel to Atlanta to open a stretch of three games in six weeks on the Monday night stage, reflecting a national perception that the Bengals can be one of the best teams in the NFL in 2007. The perception is even stronger that they’ll be one of the most exciting.

No, it’s not November, and as quarterback Carson Palmer says, “If we beat Baltimore on Sept. 10, nobody will care what our preseason record was.” But the Bengals still want to begin gaining momentum heading into that Sept. 10 opener, and the first crack at that comes against the Falcons.

“It’s time for our guys to stand up and take responsibility,” Head Coach Marvin Lewis said. “We have some good football players here. We need those guys to step up and do more. Obviously, we are pulling them out of these games and not letting them do more in that sense. But they can still do more in other ways, whether it be the huddle, the meeting room or the practice field.”

Following Monday’s game, the Bengals will return to Paul Brown Stadium to host the Indianapolis Colts next Friday.
