Asked if he would return if owner Mike Brown asks him to when the two meet in the coming days, Lewis said, "It's more complicated than that".
Paul Brown Stadium was half-empty for the final home game, an indication fans had given up and were hoping for change. I can say that I love Coach Lewis. Left guard Clint Boling moved out to play tackle for the first time in his career, and guards Alex Redmond and Christian Westerman saw their first significant action of their young careers which began in 2016.
Lewis now has his end of the season media conference scheduled for Monday at noon ET. Although Lewis has done plenty of good for the team during his tenure, in the end, his legacy will be defined by the postseason wins. Mike Brown has decided that it hasn't gotten stale enough yet, and Lewis will continue on as Palmer rides off to retirement. "The urgency has to happen (on) both sides". "And I have to do a better job of coaching them".
In a surprising turn of events for a franchise that seemed destined to part ways with its longtime head coach, the Bengals signed Marvin Lewis to a two-year deal through the 2019 season, it was announced Tuesday.
The word on the street has been that Marvin Lewis is stepping down as Bengals head coach, but so far, it's been nothing more than a rumor.
Facing a Bengals defense that ranked 20th in the league overall, allowing about 341 yards a game, the Ravens went seven straight series without a first down.
Gruden has spent the past nine seasons working as an announcer for ESPN and is scheduled to work the playoff game Saturday in Kansas City between the Chiefs and Tennessee Titans. Baltimore needed a win against their arch rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers, in Week 16 of 2016 to make the playoffs and nearly won the game if it hadn't been for the Ravens' defense giving up 31 points and a game-winning touchdown in the final seconds of a 31-27 loss. Then you have to build a team that can win the AFC.
At yet, Lewis survived it. He's staying for a 16th season as Bengals coach. But since then, they've been on point in posting back-to-back wins against the Browns and Colts.
An 89-yard interception return by cornerback Darqueze Dennard on a tipped ball by Ravens receiver Chris Moore gave the Bengals a 24-10 lead with 10:17 left in the third quarter. Paul Brown Stadium was less than half-full for the final home game, a 26-17 victory over the Lions on December 24.
On a fourth-and-12 play, Andy Dalton threw an intermediate pass to wide receiver Tyler Boyd and Boyd ran it in for a 49-yard touchdown with:44 seconds remaining to lift the Cincinnati Bengals to a 31-27 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.
If the Bengals want to sell this to the fans, they need to start in the offseason.
