Here is a look at each of those games:

Carson Palmer threw for a career-high 440 yards, and Chad Johnson caught 11 passes for a franchise-record 260 yards and two touchdowns in a game in which the Bengals lead 28-7 at halftime before an epic collapse. The Chargers scored 42 second-half points to send the Bengals to a third consecutive loss that dropped them to 4-5. LaDanian Tomlinson rushed for four touchdowns, tying the record for the most by a Bengals opponent. The Chargers also had 417 net passing yards, including three touchdown passes from Philip Rivers, for the fourth-highest total by a Bengals foe.

The Bengals only trailed 7-6 at halftime, but Cowboys kicker Tim Seder scored all 16 of his points in the second half on three field goals, an extra point and a 1-yard touchdown run on a fake field goal. The loss dropped the Bengals to 2-8.

The Bengals came into the game having lost six of seven, but Jeff Blake threw a pair of touchdown passes to Carl Pickens and Eric Bienemy ran for a score to snap the skid. The Cincinnati defense sacked Houston quarterbacks Chris Chandler and Will Furrer four times and special teams contributed with three Doug Pelfrey field goals and a blocked punt for a safety.

Nov. 12, 1972 – Oakland Raiders 20, Cincinnati Bengals 14 at Riverfront Stadium

The Bengals jumped out to an early 7-0 lead on a Doug Dressler touchdown run, but the Raiders’ three-headed ground attack of Charlie Smith, Marv Hubbard and Clarence Davis rushed for 288 yards.
