Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said in his postgame press conference Sunday that given the roll the team is on, he’d rather play this weekend than have a bye.
But he conceded the off week probably is for the best given the number of injuries the Bengals sustained in the 20-16 win against Buffalo, including the ones that forced starting cornerbacks Dre Kirkpatrick (shoulder) and Adam Jones (back) out of the game in the first half.
