Bengals win wild one; Reds destroy Pirates

Oh, me of little faith. After the Cincinnati Bengals turned the ball over on four straight possessions against the Green Bay Packers, I turned the channel to the Cincinnati Reds game. The Bengals then proceeded to blow a fourteen point lead. Yep, I said to myself, this is Bengals football. The Bengals went down by sixteen points in the third quarter.

Then it got stranger. Packers All Pro Quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw two interceptions. The Bengals magnificent defense held. And a forced fumble was recovered by Bengals cornerback Terence Newman who ran it back for a touchdown. Bengals win 34-30. WTF. I'll just say this. Thank God for the Bengals defense. Here's the story.

And oh yeah, the Cincinnati Reds won. They pummeled the Pittsburgh Pirates, 11-3. That puts them in a tie for second place in the National League Central with the Pirates. They are also tied for the first Wild Card position. There are six games left. The St. Louis Cardinals are currently 2.5 games ahead of both the Reds and the Pirates. This could be a wild one also. Here's the story.
