AFC Wild Card: Geno Atkins, Adam Jones almost fight on Bengals sideline (Video)


The Cincinnati Bengals are trying to get their first playoff win since 1991, and both Geno Atkins and Adam Jones are proving how high the intensity is by almost fighting each other. 

The Cincinnati Bengals are in Indianapolis to play the Colts in the AFC Wild Card, but the intensity is already running incredibly high for the visiting team. In three straight years the Bengals have made the playoffs and in three straight seasons they’ve been bounced in the first round.

Needless to say, a fourth straight loss is not what the Bengals are shooting for as nothing would epitomize utter failure any better.

It hasn’t been the best of starts for the Bengals, as while they need to stay on point on the field, there are already problems on the sideline. For whatever reason, teammates Geno Atkins and Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones nearly came to blows and had to be separated by head coach Marvin Lewis.

Of course, this might just be a result of the intensity of the Wild Card game running so high, as there is a lot riding on the line for the Bengals. They haven’t won a playoff game since 1991, which is bad enough, but the more detrimental fact is that they’ve lost three of their last three trips to the postseason in three straight years.

That’s a whole lot of playoff depression and it’s clear that the Bengals are not about to fall victim in the AFC Wild Card again. They may end up losing, and if that happens some sideline shoving won’t be the worst part of the day for the Bengals.
