Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week yesterday. It is the second time the Bengals signal caller has won the award. He was offensive player of the month in October and he is the first Bengal to receive three league honors in a season since David Fulcher in 1989. The quarterback was 24-of-35 for 275 yards with three touchdowns and one rushing against Indianapolis on Sunday in a 42-28 win. Cincinnati will battle the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pre game at 7 and the kick off at 8:30.

Major League Baseball has decided to ban home plate collisions effective as soon as next season. The change in rules could be put in place in 2014, but the specific language must be drafted and approved by the rules committee, the owners and the players’ association. The rule would cause any attempt to run over a catcher to be deemed an out and could also bring a suspension or fine.
The Cincinnati Reds attempts to deal All-Star second baseman Brandon Phillips took a hit last night as the New York Yankees denied a trade. The Yankees denied an offer to bring in Phillips for Brett Gardner. Phillips also has a no-trade clause that allows him to block a deal to the Yankees, but New York is reluctant to trade Gardner despite losing infielder Robinson Cano. Phillips did ask for more money as part of the deal.
The #3 Ohio State Buckeyes blew past Bryant last night, 86-48. The Buckeyes dominated the first half, outscoring the Bulldogs by 20 points.
