Why I’m Rooting For the Bengals
If the New England Patriots can't win the AFC and advance to the Super Bowl, I hope the Cincinnati Bengals do! Now before you ask whether I was playing football without a helmet consider the following:
The Bengals recently cut Devon Still. Still who played at Penn State and was an All-American was drafted by Cincinnati in 2012 in the second round. He played for the Bengals in 2012 and 2013, and was one of the last cuts for the Bengals as they were getting to the 53 man roster. Now Still has a 4 year old daughter, and she has cancer. The Bengals stepped up, and re-signed him to the 10 player practice squad, so he could retain all of his NFL healthcare benefits and pay for his daughter's cancer treatment!
Cancer sucks, the Bengals realize it, and they're doing something to help the Still family! They didn't have to, but they did! I hope that Devon's daughter has a full recovery, and that the Bengals win it all, if the Patriots don't.
