Vikings Ready for Home Cooking Against Bengals

Vikings Ready for Home Cooking Against Bengals

McCarthy told reporters he had "great respect" for Lewis as the Packers prepared to take on the Bengals at Lambeau Field in Week 3.

When Lewis was hired in 2003, he became the first Bengals coach since 1980 - and just second in team history - who was hired without having any prior ties to the organization.

Only two National Football League head coaches have been in their current job longer than Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy.

Marvin Lewis will reportedly be leaving the Cincinnati Bengal after the 2017 season after 15 years as the team's head coach.

Xavier Rhodes will face another tough receiver in A.J. Green, who will take the field at U.S. Bank Stadium for his 100 National Football League game on Sunday. He's compiled a record of 123-111, making the NFL Playoffs seven times, including five seasons in a row from 2011-2015.

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.

According to police, the woman's father reported her missing and called 911 saying he hadn't seen his daughter in nearly two days. Agnew indicated that the investigation has yet to be concluded, but has ruled out foul play as the cause of Stephens' death.

"We all realize that when you sign up for these jobs, the thing is it's not forever", Lewis told reporters earlier this week.

Lewis, 59, entered 2017 on the final year of his contract.

All of the Bengals' assistant coaches also have expiring contracts, which means the team could begin moving forward with head coaching interviews for defensive coordinator Paul Guenther and special teams coordinator Darrin Simmons, or look beyond the franchise, the Enquirer reported.

When Lewis goes, McCarthy will assume the title of the NFL's second-longest tenured head coach behind Belichick.

The Bengals now sit with a record of 5-8, and have been all but eliminated from playoff contention, and are 12.5-point underdogs this week against the Minnesota Vikings. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. E.T.
