Reality check: Home opener brings Bengals back to earth

CINCINNATI (AP) Call it a reality check.

Buoyed by their strong showing in a close, season-opening loss at Seattle, the Bengals looked forward to winning back fans and stamping themselves as a turnaround team at Paul Brown Stadium under new head coach Zac Taylor. It couldn't have gone any worse.

Every part of the team contributed to a 41-17 meltdown against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, the most points they've allowed in a home opener.
