Bengals extend Lewis again
Despite repeated struggles in the playoffs, the Cincinnati Bengals have elected to extend head coach Marvin Lewis through the 2017 season.
ESPN confirmed the move with Lewis on Friday and the deal is expected to be announced officially on Monday. He has been with the franchise since 2003 and has a record of 112-92-2 in his 13 seasons with the Bengals. Cincinnati has made the playoffs the last five years, but lost in their first game each time. He is 0-7 in the playoffs in his career.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Bengals are listed with 25/1 odds to win Super Bowl LI. They are also listed with 10/1 odds to win the AFC Championship next season, while their over/under total for wins are listed at 9.5 wins.
The Bengals were 12-4 last season, winning the AFC North title before losing to the Steelers in the Wild Card playoffs. Granted, the loss came without starting QB Andy Dalton, who had an injury. The Bengals have won double-digits games in each of the last four years and in six of the 13 seasons with Lewis as head coach.
