Didn't take long: Bengals WR Ja'Marr Chase has just surpassed Chad Ochocinco for the most receiving yards in a single season in Bengals history. 1,455 yards for the unstoppable rookie.

Bengals coach Zac Taylor, when asked if he was aware of the Bengals' 31-year playoff victory drought: "This team is the 2021 Bengals. And that's all that matters."
Mike Hilton with the goal line INT. Returns it and trips. Gets jumped on by a Brown OL.
Brandon Allen looks like he's never taken a snap in this offense
Samaje Perine played 15 special teams snaps, but zero offensive snaps.
If that's it, Chris Evans ends the year with 77 rush yards on 17 carries. That's 4.5 yards per. He also caught 15 balls for 151 yards and 2 TDs.
Higgins (coach's decision) is a healthy inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.
Cincinnati doesn't have much at stake in terms of playoff positioning in the regular-season finale, so Higgins will be one of several key contributors who will sit out or get rest Week 18. Meanwhile, star rookie Ja'Marr Chase is active, but the Bengals may just be looking to have him establish the single-season franchise receiving record -- he enters Sunday's game 12 yards short of the mark -- before having him sit the remainder of the contest. According to Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site, Mike Thomas is the most likely candidate to enter the starting lineup in place of Higgins, who finishes the regular season with 74 catches for 1,091 yards and six touchdowns over 14 appearances.
Injury Update: S Ricardo Allen has a concussion. He has been declared out.
Wish the Bengals had a backup receiver with some potential. This would be a good game for Auden Tate to make some plays.
Credit to Markus Bailey for the tipped ball. He's playing.
Injury Update: CB Vernon Hargreaves III has a right ankle injury. His return is questionable.
Gonna be asleep by the time Raiders-Chargers ends so here's my analysis on the Bengals' Wild Card game. Please use with attribution: "Wow! Very interesting matchup. Can Joe Burrow and Co. bring the Bengals their first playoff win since 1991?"
The entire OL are developmental guys. LT - D'Ante Smith LG - Jackson Carman C - Trey Hill RG - Hakeem Adeniji RT - Isaiah Prince
I am excited to see Jackson Carman and some of the other development guys.
Injury Update: DT Josh Tupou has a right knee injury. He has been declared out.
Renell Wren and rookie Tyler Shelvin getting some reps at DT for the Bengals.
Great moment for Trayvon Henderson. Member of practice squad for 3 years. In ninth NFL game he scores a TD on 29yard FR…Forced by DE Wyatt Ray. First Bengals FR TD since rookie DE Sam Hubbard vs. Miami in 2018
Mike Thomas with a great right cross to force the fumble. Kind of punch that could put a guy down.
And Trayveon Williams, who led the SEC in rushing in '18 during his final season at Texas A&M, is the RB to start this Bengals drive.
Ricardo Allen just rung his own bell on that hit. As he was walked to the sidelines, Jessie Bates came over and took his helmet from him.
You wonder if Mike Daniels is playing in his last NFL game. Great career, but spent all season on #Bengals practice squad at 32 years old, has bright post-football future. 1) He's definitely enjoying himself and 2) doesn't look washed up at all.
D'Ante Smith also back in at left tackle for the Bengals.
Fumble return TD for Trayvon Henderson, but don't think it will stand
A healthy check- in from the basement for today's Bengals-Browns regular-season finale. Looking for a Trenton Irwin or Trayveon Williams TD.
Update: Fred Johnson is at LT Not sure if D'Ante Smith will got a shot somewhere else or if he was hurt again.
The #Browns are moving forward with Baker Mayfield as their starting QB, with the parties on the same page heading into the offseason, sources say. From me and @TomPelissero: nfl.com/news/browns-pl…
Jadeveon Clowney sounds like a guy who wants to be back in Cleveland — provided that the💰is right #Browns
#Browns inactives: CB Troy Hill RB Kareem Hunt S Ronnie Harrison Jr. S Richard LeCounte III G Hjalte Froholdt DT Sheldon Day
Bengals defensive end Wyatt Ray chases Case Keenum and casues a fumble. Trayvon Henderson scoops it up for a touchdown. Fitting that the Bengals defense scores before the offense today.
Watch: Case Keenum takes over postgame presser and interviews D'Ernest Johnson cleveland.com/browns/2022/01…
Tre Flowers falls down in coverage against Jarvis Landry and it's a 26-yard TD. Feels like an insurmountable lead. 7-0 Browns with 0:56 left 1Q
Case Keenum definitely had a TD to Donovan Peoples-Jones there. Just left the throw too far outside and behind the WR.
Watt isn't even 2nd for me. I'd probably have him being Nick Bosa and Myles Garrett. twitter.com/BeanieBurrow/s…
A.J. Green, with the deep incompletion he could've had and the negated completions, would already be well over 100 yards today.
Chubb rushed nine times for 58 yards and brought in his only target for two yards in the Browns' 21-16 win over the Bengals on Sunday.
Chubb predictably saw relatively limited action, and a bulk of his production against what was a much improved Bengals run defense this season came on a 35-yard scamper. The fourth-year pro finished with an impressive 1,259 rushing yards in 14 games, the second-highest tally of his career. With backfield mate Kareem Hunt (ankle) under contract through next season as well, Chubb figures to still operate as the primary early-down option for the run-heavy Cleveland attack in 2022.
#Browns LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah out for the game with a leg injury, team announces.
