Relive the Cincinnati Bengals' memorable 1979 season with this guide that explores the entire year game by game, from opening day against the Broncos all the way through the upset of the Browns to end the season, through the newspaper accounts of the day.

A strong finish to 1978 and a productive draft that included quarterback Jack "The Throwin' Samoan" Thompson gave the Bengals high hopes in '79. Those dreams were soon dashed by a terrible start, but Cincinnati righted itself and ended the season on a high note. Along the way there were many highlights, including a shocking blowout of the mighty Steelers, a convincing upset of the playoff-bound Eagles and that season-ending win over the hated Browns.

All of the highs and lows from the exciting season are here. A full recap and box score from every game is included, so you can follow the exploits of the Bengals from start to finish in what would be coach Homer Rice's swan song.

Whether you are a die-hard Bengals fan or an NFL history buff, you will enjoy this look back at the 1979 Cincinnati Bengals.
