Marvin Lewis to leave Bengals after this season

They will head to Green Bay on Saturday to face a Packers team that might not have much to play for after losing at Carolina in Aaron Rodgers' return, and they'll finish the regular season at home against Chicago on December 30.

Safety Shaun Williams intercepted the pass and returned it to the Vikings' 23, marking the first time the Bengals had advanced past the Vikings' 43 all day, and Giovani Bernard's two-yard TD run put Cincinnati on the board.

Minnesota Vikings backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater made his first in-game appearance since January 10, 2016 during mop-up duty against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

"The right has their own set of plays and the left has their own set of plays, so it will be a lot easier for me this week", Hill said. Of the Bengals eight losses, four have come by four points or less. The No. 4 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Green has caught at least one touchdown pass in 51 games and has had six games with two scores. They ran the ball well, and utilized McKinnon very well in the victory. That's when they turned things over to their backup quarterback, inviting what might have been the loudest roar of the season at U.S. Bank Stadium.

The Minnesota Vikings locked up their second division title in three years, which is huge.

The Bengals have averaged 79.4 rushing yards per game this season.

- Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen has 13 sacks this season, which is a career high for the former fourth-round pick.

They're still hurting this week heading to Minnesota, a place where the Bengals have never been victorious in five previous visits.

Lewis became the Bengals' ninth head coach on January 14, 2003, and the team finished that season 8-8 - a six-game improvement over the prior year. With head coaching jobs likely to open up across the league this offseason, chances are Lewis will be a fairly hot commodity for teams looking to reboot their staffs.
