CINCINNATI: The Bengals returned to a run-first offense in 2011, and that should continue with BenJarvus Green-Ellis stepping in for Cedric Benson. Offensive coordinator Jay Gruden mixed in some more zone blocking principles and stretch plays last year, something that didn't fit with Benson at all. The Bengals have been looking to get Bernard Scott more involved, and this year they should be able to do it. Expect a 60/40 early-down split for Green-Ellis and Scott, with Brian Leonard keeping his third down role because of his ability as a pass protector. Green-Ellis figures to be the focal point of their red zone offense, just like Benson was a year ago. Gruden's offense is West Coast in terminology, but they pressure secondaries deep. A lot of their best plays were jump balls to A.J. Green. Either rookies Mohamed Sanu or Marvin Jones, or Jordan Shipley could slide in opposite Green on the outside, and Gruden will have to tweak the offense since none of them are deep threats. They use a lot of three-WR sets, so there should be ample playing time for two of those secondary targets. TE Jermaine Gresham is the No. 2 target for Dalton, and this offense creates room for him over the middle. The backs are more for pass protection than receiving skills. Gruden gets a little more pass-happy in the red zone, but not absurdly so. When they do throw, Green is overwhelmingly the most popular target. The Bengals defense showed an ability to get to the quarterback in 2011, with 14 players contributing at least one sack to a total that placed fifth in the NFL. Rookie CB Dre' Kirkpatrick will help out the defense with his coverage skills, but this unit doesn't make enough big plays to provide the offense with a lot of short fields. The one guy in the secondary who is capable of making a big play is Reggie Nelson, a rangy centerfielder at free safety with solid ball skills.
SAN DIEGO: Offensive line coach Hal Hunter picks up the offensive coordinator title after Clarence Shelmon's retirement, but this remains head coach Norv Turner's offense. They want to establish the power running game between the tackles, though Ryan Mathews gives them the versatility to mix in some zone blocking as well. With Mike Tolbert gone, newly acquired veteran Ronnie Brown will pick up some carries. But hybrid back Le'Ron McClain could end up more closely replicating Tolbert as the power change-of-pace to Mathews. While Mathews figures to play a lot of the red zone snaps, McClain seems likely to step in on the goal line. Turner is an Air Coryell disciple who gets the ball downfield. Protection issues were at the root of Philip Rivers' mid-season struggles in 2011, but they seem to have gotten things straightened out with Jared Gaither stepping in at left tackle. Rivers reads deep-to-short, with Robert Meachem taking over for Vincent Jackson as the primary deep target. Antonio Gates will continue to run a lot of intermediate crossing routes as the No. 2 option, with Malcom Floyd occasionally targeted as a deep threat. The Chargers use their backs often in the passing game and they really missed Darren Sproles last year. But the arrival of Eddie Royal in the slot could fill some of Sproles' old catch-and-run playmaking. When they throw in the red zone, Gates is overwhelmingly the top target. The Chargers' defense experienced quite a drop-off in production last season, allowing 75 more yards per game than in 2010. They brought in some solid veterans to help in 2012, but no real game-changers. First-round draft pick DE Melvin Ingram will need some seasoning before he becomes an elite pass rusher. Eric Weddle now plays more of a centerfield role rather than downhill in the box. This reduced his production in the tackle department and seemed to hurt the San Diego run defense a bit last season, but Weddle's seven interceptions in 2011 were more than he had in his previous four seasons combined.

*Bengals-Chargers Preview* ==========================


The surging Cincinnati Bengals have climbed back into playoff contention behind impressive efforts on both sides of the ball.

Very little, in contrast, has gone right for the injury-plagued San Diego Chargers, who appear to be falling apart.

The visiting Bengals try for a fourth consecutive win Sunday against a Chargers team hoping to avoid a seventh loss in eight games.

Cincinnati (6-5) closed September with three straight wins only to lose its next four but has since gotten back on track. The Bengals, who've outscored opponents by an average of 21.3 points during their current run, sit in seventh place in the AFC - just outside the playoff picture.

"The anticipation comes down to these last five (games) now and what they mean and how important they are," coach Marvin Lewis said. "We're in OK position. We're not in great position, but we're in OK position. And we've got to improve upon it each and every week."

While Andy Dalton has thrown nine touchdowns and no interceptions over the last three weeks, the Bengals' running game is also finally coming around. After rushing for 189 yards in a 28-6 win at Kansas City on Nov. 18, Cincinnati compiled 221 during last Sunday's 34-10 victory over Oakland.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for a season-high 129 yards and a score while Cedric Peerman added 61 on eight carries for the Bengals, who had been limited to an average of 93.7 rushing yards over their first nine games. Cincinnati is 7-0 when rushing for at least 130 yards since the start of last season.

"We've got to keep this going," Dalton said. "The running game has done a great job the last two weeks. We've got to keep the balance."

Cincinnati's defense also continues to come up big. The Bengals limited the Chiefs and Raiders to a combined 502 yards and have forced seven turnovers during their winning streak.

"What's really cool is that our offense is clicking now, and our defense is clicking and special teams have been playing great," defensive tackle Domata Peko said. "So when you get us rolling on all cylinders, we're going to be a tough team to beat."

Cincinnati now looks to keep things going against San Diego (4-7), which doesn't carry much momentum into Sunday's showdown. The Chargers opened 3-1 but have since dropped six of seven - with their only victory coming over the one-win Chiefs on Nov. 1.

San Diego appeared to be in good shape to get back in the win column Sunday, leading Baltimore 13-10 and forcing the Ravens into a fourth-and-29 with 1:59 left. The Chargers, however, couldn't bring Ray Rice down until he gained 30 yards on a short pass, and they eventually lost 16-13 in overtime.

"I guess for you guys, you can say that, and it's easy to say," coach Norv Turner replied when asked if that play summed up the team's season. "It's a play we had guys in position to make the play and we didn't handle it very well."

Philip Rivers threw for 228 yards and a touchdown against the Ravens but San Diego was outgained 443-280 in total offense.

Things aren't about to get any easier for the Chargers, who lost strong safety Atari Bigby to a season-ending groin injury last Sunday. Leading tackler Donald Butler (groin) is also expected to miss time while safety Darrell Stuckey (hamstring) is uncertain to play.

Pro Bowler safety Eric Weddle, meanwhile, suffered a concussion last Sunday but is expected to be ready for this game.

"We've lost a lot of guys throughout on offense and on defense, and we have guys that just keep coming in," Turner, who placed left tackle Jared Gaither on injured reserve last Friday, told the team's official website. "Obviously, it affects you in certain situations."

San Diego's banged-up secondary could have its hands full with A.J. Green, who's tied for the league lead with 10 receiving TDs and ranks fourth with 1,022 yards. The star wideout hauled in three receptions for 111 yards against the Raiders but saw his nine-game TD streak come to an end.

Cincinnati pulled out a 34-20 home win in the last matchup in this series in 2010, but has dropped five of six in San Diego since 1992.
