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.

Doug Pederson said Tuesday that if Lane Johnson is ready to go - which in this case means, "if he isn't serving a 10-game suspension" - Johnson will be the Eagles starting right tackle when the regular season begins against Cleveland in less than two weeks. Barring some kind of procedural mishap in the testing process, and none has been claimed by Johnson or his representatives, then Johnson will miss the games at some point this season because he tested positive for a banned substance, his second such transgression.

LAST SEASON'S opponent won-loss records tell us the Eagles have the NFL's seventh easiest schedule. But it doesn't look all that easy to me. We knew back in January who the Eagles were going to be playing this season and where. We knew about the seven games against 2015 playoff teams, and the road rematch with a Detroit Lions team put up 45 points against them, and the cross-country road trip to hostile Seattle. All the league's schedule-maker did Thursday was give us the when.

THERE ARE only three scenarios: 1. Chip Kelly was wrong about the kind of talent he needs to run his scheme in the NFL successfully. 2. Kelly was right about the kind of talent he needs, but failed to properly evaluate the talents of the players he acquired to run his scheme this offseason. 3. Kelly was wrong about his scheme all along. Talk all you want about a fourth scenario, in which Kelly's players return from their bye week and begin playing as he thought they could, catching every ball, nailing every throw, making every block, hitting every hole.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 6 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Sam Bradford, QB, Eagles vs. Giants. Bradford seems to be getting into a rhythm with Philly's up-tempo offense, passing for 603 yards and 5 TDs over the last two weeks. Next up: The NFL's most generous secondary. Arian Foster, RB, Texans at Jaguars. He's gotten past his groin injury and reclaimed the workhorse role in Houston's backfield. Meanwhile, Alfred Blue is dealing with a turf toe. Antonio Andrews, RB, Titans vs. Dolphins.

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.

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.

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.
