  • Time for Bengals to budge bench Andy Dalton for AJ McCarron

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is brought down by Houston Texans inside linebacker Benardrick McKinney.

In Zampese's place, quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor will take over as Bengals' offensive coordinator.

"Ken Zampese has done a tremendous job for us for my 15 years here, and I have the utmost respect for Ken as a person and as a coach", coach Marvin Lewis said in a statement (via ESPN).

"Today, I'm really thinking more about Ken having been through it from the other side and knowing how much he put into it and feeling badly and trying to be humane about that", Lazar added about Zampese, according to the Enquirer. The Bengals are the first team since the 1929 Eagles to open a season with two home games and fail to score a touchdown.

The ruling means the Justice Department can not deny grant money requests until Chicago's lawsuit against the agency is concluded. The grant at issue is called the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant, and the funds benefit law enforcement.


Lewis had said earlier Friday that he would keep any personnel changes private.

It was nearly 30 minutes before Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton emerged from the showers after the team's 13-9 loss to the Texans on Thursday night. Multiple players, most notably wide receiver A.J. Green, expressed frustration with the offense after Thursday night's game. That's it. And then we will take it from there,"Lazor said".

For the non-math majors out there, the Bengals are averaging 4.5 points per game (for the non-football fans out there, that's horrifically bad). "You are not going to win without them.Being one of the leaders of the offense I feel like - no disrespect to nobody else - that ball should be mine somewhere somehow". "You have to find a way to get me the ball and we are not doing that right now". By the time of his graduation, the three-year starter broke 26 passing and total offensive records for the program. He also worked under Chip Kelly in Philadelphia before joining the Dolphins.
