Bengals-Eagles notes: Philly tops in the NFL in the red zone

Six facts about the Bengals and Eagles, who meet at 1 p.m. Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium.

• The Bengals will be trying to avoid their first five-game winless streak since 2010 and just the third of the Marvin Lewis era (10 straight in 2010, eight in a row in 2008).

• The Eagles are 9-1 against the AFC since 2014, which is the best winning percentage in the league during that stretch.

• Cincinnati running back Jeremy Hill is on pace for 937 rushing yards, which would mean the Bengals would go back-to-back seasons without a 1,000-yard rusher for the first time since 2007-08.

• Philadelphia ranks second in the NFL in time of possession (31:47) behind Dallas (32:50), and the Eagles are first in second-half time of possession (16:51).

• The Bengals have recovered just three opponent fumbles this season, putting them on pace to break the mark for the fewest in franchise history (six in 2014, 2009 and the strike year of 1982).

• The Eagles lead the NFL in in opponent red zone scoring efficiency (76.5 percent, 26 of 34) while ranking second in red zone touchdown efficiency (44.1 percent, 13 of 30) behind Pittsburgh (41.7, 15 of 36).

Hartsock: Better luck next time for Bailey

I’m not sure what’s more frustrating for Reds fans — Homer Bailey’s 2017 debut or knowing that he’s still under contract the next two years to the tune of $44 million. The veteran right-hander sure didn’t look like the guy who breezed through three rehab starts, including one in Dayton. Of course those were against...
