Lewis had called the rumors about retirement, "unfortunate", and said he was only thinking about this weekend's season finale against the Baltimore Ravens.

One day after declining to definitively answer multiple questions from local reporters about whether he would retire after the season, Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis made his intentions clear on his regular scheduled appearance on a national talk show.

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis revealed the news on SiriusXM NFL Radio Thursday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The 26-year-old Lewis has rushed 53 times for 235 yards and reeled in 15 receptions for 90 yards in six games this season. He's led the Bengals to the playoffs seven times in 14 years but has yet to grab that elusive first postseason victory. Lewis is the second-most tenured National Football League coach behind New England's Bill Belichick.

Again, another oddity was Mack Brown, the Redskins third-string running back carrying eight times for 82 yards and a touchdown. Matt Barkley's pattern of calming down and putting the pedal down in second halves of games came to an appalling end Saturday.

Three days after the Cincinnati Bengals placed him on injured reserve, Tyler Eifert seems to be in good spirits despite undergoing surgery.

Green suffered a Grade 2 hamstring tear in the Bengals' Week 11 loss to the Buffalo Bills and has been sidelined since. He is expected to be ready for the 2017 season.

In eight games this season, Eifert caught 39 passes for 394 yards and five touchdowns.
