The Cincinnati Bengals came into pro football as an AFL team just two seasons before the AFL-NFL Merger of 1970. Over the course of their existence, they have had both up and down seasons just like any other team. Today we’re taking a look at what players had the Bengals number over the years. Who scored more touchdowns against Cincinnati than anyone else in league history?
Jerome Bettis had a long and successful career as a running back, starting out with the Rams and then achieving his greatest success with the Steelers. With 17 career touchdowns against the Bengals, he also scored more against Cincinnati than anyone else. This is thanks in part to his great skill and the high level of play of the Steelers, but it is also thanks in part to the fact that Pittsburgh and Cincinnati play each other twice every year.
