The Cincinnati Bengals blew past Philadelphia last night, 34-13. The Bengals came racing out of the gates, taking advantage of two mistakes by Philadelphia to give Cincinnati a 10-0 lead after one. However, the Eagles came charging right back early in the second as Nick Foles found Riley Cooper for an 11-yard touchdown pass to cut the lead to three and a pair of Alex Henery field goals gave Philly the lead at the intermission. But the Bengals would dominate the second half. Andy Dalton started things with an 11-yard touchdown run to regain the lead and less than a minute later Wallace Gillberry recovered a fumble and took it back 25 yards for a touchdown. The Eagles turned the ball over a total of five times on the night and Dalton put the exclamation point on the night when he found A.J. Green from five yards out to seal the victory in the fourth. The Bengals will now head to Pittsburgh next Sunday. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pre game at 11:30 AM and kick off at 1.

The seven non-Football Bowl Subdivision schools in the Big East have agreed to leave the conference. Details are still yet to be determined, but the seven catholic schools – Depaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Providence, St. John’s, Seton Hall and Villanova – will leave the conference. Because the schools are leaving as a group, they can take advantage of a league clause that will exempt them from paying exit fees, however, the schools will have to give 27 months notice before leaving.
In Major League baseball news, the LA Angels inked a blockbuster deal with free agent outfielder Josh Hamilton yesterday. The 31-year old slugger signed a 5-year, $125 million contract with the Angels. Hamilton hit .285 with 43 homers and 128 RBIs last season for the Rangers.
