Sept. 14, 2008 — Tennessee Titans 24, Cincinnati Bengals 7 at Paul Brown Stadium

The remnants of Hurricane Ike knocked out electricity to most of the tri-state, saving many fans the frustration of watching a powerless Bengals offense. Neither team was able to throw the ball in the swirling, high winds, with the Titans gaining 118 yards through the air while the Bengals managed 127. The difference was Tennessee ran for 177, compared to only 88 for the home team.

Sept. 14, 2003 – Oakland Raiders 23, Cincinnati Bengals 20 at Network Associates Coliseum

After the Bengals tied the game on an 8-yard touchdown pass from Jon Kita to Peter Warrick with 1:18 remaining, a Raiders offense that only had 182 total yards at the point drove down the field to set up Sebastian Janikowski’s game-winning 39-yard field goal with nine seconds left. The Bengals outgained Oakland 416 to 237, ran 82 plays to the Raiders’ 48 and held a 39:24 to 20:36 edge in time of possession and still lost.
