Bengals quarterback Boomer Esiason says he is OK to play against the Houston Oilers despite the bruised lung he sustained while playing against the Los Angeles Raiders last Sunday. "It's my right lung that's injured," Esiason said, laughing. "I'm left- lunged. " Actually, Esiason probably isn't as fit as he lets on. But if he didn't laugh, he probably would cry. The Bengals, who made it to the Super Bowl before losing to the 49ers last season, are struggling. Their offense is without star running back Ickey Woods, who was injured in September and is out for the season.

The Cincinnati Bengals, locked in a continuing battle with their city over seating at Riverfront Stadium, escalated the dispute yesterday by announcing that they would withhold all rent payments to the city. The Bengals, who lease the city-operated stadium along with the baseball Cincinnati Reds, say the city has failed to comply with a two-year-old court order to remove auxiliary scoreboards that block the view of Bengals' season- ticket holders. The scoreboards were still in place Sunday night for the Bengals' exhibition game against the Buffalo Bills, said Mike Brown, the Bengals' legal counsel and assistant general manager.

The Cincinnati Bengals woke up yesterday morning and discovered that San Francisco cornerback Tim McKyer had said some not-so-friendly things about them in one of the local newspapers. And, no, they were not exactly ready to invite him to tea after they read what he had to say. McKyer ripped the Bengals' secondary, maligned Pro Bowl receiver Eddie Brown and basically dared the entire team to tell him to shut up. "I guess the game is already over according to some players on their team," Bengals strong safety David Fulcher said.

Now Donovan McNabb knows how it feels to be a reporter. Akili Smith won't talk to him, either. The Eagles' quarterback said he called Smith a couple of times this season and left messages. The calls have not been returned. McNabb feels no bitterness over Smith's silence. Smith has not talked with the media since Nov. 12, the day before he was benched, but McNabb empathizes with the Bengals' young quarterback. "That's an organization that a lot of guys are not happy about going to," McNabb said, referring to the legendary mismanagement that has plagued the Bengals over the last decade.

Eric Thomas watched the Eagles' Mike Quick line up across from him and he knew. The next pass was coming his way. He was sure. You might call it a cornerback's instinct. Or a cornerback's nightmare. The Eagles had first down at the Cincinnati 19-yard line, trailing 28-24 with less than a minute to go yesterday. The Bengals were blitzing Randall Cunningham and that meant Thomas was left alone to guard Quick, a truly scary prospect. "Quick is their big-play guy," the second-year cornerback said.

The Cincinnati Bengals' regulars returned from a 24-day strike to discover that nothing had changed. Time still isn't on their side. The Bengals, who mismanaged the clock in their 27-26 prestrike loss to the San Francisco 49ers, fell a few yards and a few seconds short yesterday in falling to the host Pittsburgh Steelers, 23-20, on Gary Anderson's 20-yard field goal with 1:47 remaining. The Bengals, 2-4 after wasting an 11-point lead, drove to the Steelers' 18 in the closing seconds but couldn't get their field-goal team set in time for a potential game-tying Jim Breech kick.

CINCINNATI - The Bengals know they flubbed a chance to put themselves in better shape for a playoff berth, and now there is a greater urgency to beat the Eagles on Thursday at the Linc. Penalties. Dropped passes. A game-turning interception. A defensive letdown at the end. They reviewed all of those on Monday as they did a fast-forward to their next game. A 20-19 loss to Dallas Cowboys on Sunday left the Bengals tied with Pittsburgh at 7-6 for the second AFC wild card. The Steelers and the AFC North-leading Ravens (9-4)

MUCH TALK this week in the Eagles' locker room about how the Bengals aren't really a 1-8 team, blah, blah blah, they took the Giants to overtime, etc. But they are, in fact, a 1-8 team; you can look it up. Also, it doesn't really matter. Whatever the Bengals are or could be, this game is not about them. It's about the Eagles, and their fading dreams of playoff contention. If they really are the team they think they are, they will step up, and it won't much matter how the Bengals play.

The Eagles signed linebacker Rashad Jeanty on Sunday, bringing in a former Cincinnati Bengal who missed the 2010 season after suffering a broken leg in a 2009 playoff game. Jeanty, 27, signed a one-year deal and will compete for a job at a position where the team struggled last season. Jeanty has 32 career starts, including 15 in 2008. He led Cincinnati with 14 special teams tackles in 2009. Jeanty played with the Bengals from 2006 to 2009 after playing with the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League from 2003 to 2005.

In the third round of the NFL draft, with the No. 85 overall pick, the Cincinnati Bengals selected Rutgers tight end Tyler Kroft, a graduate of Downingtown East. The 6-foot-6, 250-pounder, who played youth football for the Marsh Creek Eagles, caught 24 passes for 269 yards while helping the Scarlet Knights go 8-5 (3-5 in the Big Ten) last season. Kroft's best statistical season came in 2013, when he made 43 catches for 573 yards and four touchdowns.

Tyler Kroft had a stellar season at tight end for Rutgers in 2013, starting in all 12 games and making 43 receptions for 573 yards and four touchdowns. His numbers dropped significantly last fall, largely due to the program's switch in offensive coordinators from Ron Prince to Ralph Friedgen. In Friedgen's more run-oriented scheme, he had 24 receptions for 269 yards. That didn't keep the Cincinnati Bengals from selecting the 2011 Downingtown East graduate in the third round of the NFL draft.

AT SOME point, either before or after Sunday's game, Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still will walk up to Saints coach Sean Payton, shake his hand and say "thank you. " In September, Payton heard about Still's 4-year-old daughter, Leah, who has stage 4 neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer. When Payton heard the Bengals were offering the proceeds of the sale of Still's No. 75 jersey to battle the disease, he bought 100 of them, at $100 a piece. And Payton wasn't the only one. The team raised over $1 million for Children's Hospital in Cincinnati.

THIS WOULD normally pass as a nothing kind of February story as far as the NFL is concerned. But seeing as how so much of current NFL offensive strategy was birthed in college, and seeing as how Eagles coach Chip Kelly is responsible for more than his share of the birthing, it is worth a mention. That is, the proposal to slow down college football. Under current rules, if an offensive team does not substitute, it can snap the ball as soon as the referee makes it ready for play.

Here's a sampling: *  Freddie Mitchell after making fourth-and-26 catch: "I'd like to thank my hands for being so great. " *  Ricky Watters : "For who? For what?" *  Randall Cunningham: "Let me be me. " *  Donovan McNabb about Terrell Owens' criticism of the quarterback's performance in a loss to the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXIX: "Just keep my name out of your mouth.

Will Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers play Sunday? Let's look at the clues and see what we can deduce. Rodgers, appearing recovered from his broken left collarbone, practiced Thursday and looked OK. So maybe he'll play. But though he did a little stretching and looked sharp in position drills, he watched as backup Matt Flynn, who took the majority of the reps on the day, led the offense during another short practice period. Uh, oh. However, coach Mike McCarthy said he thought Rodgers looked "ready to play" and said he would name his starter on Friday, which might mean Rodgers has a shot.

HOUSTON - J.J. Watt swatted away passes, Arian Foster ran away from tacklers, and the Houston Texans did just enough to knock Cincinnati out of the playoffs for the second straight year. Matt Schaub made his postseason debut a successful one when Foster's 1-yard touchdown in third quarter helped the Texans to a 19-13 AFC wild-card playoff win over the Bengals on Saturday. Now comes the big test. The Texans (13-4) move on to the second round on Jan. 13, when they visit the New England Patriots, who beat them, 42-14, in Week 14. Shayne Graham kicked four field goals for the Texans, while Foster finished with 140 yards and became the first NFL player to have 100-yard games in each of his first three playoff games.
